Its $20 per vehicule just a little square place where you can park your car, toilette and a nice lake to see sunset or sunrise. There are lot of houses overthere.
Beautiful lake side camping, good for a swim . 10$ per adult. Perfect overnight stay
Beautiful area, but not where you'd park your motorhome. Cost is $20 overnight.
Don't bother camping here. Very rocky campsite, and no water.
We are non-self contained so we tried to stay here instead of the Lake McGregor site next-door (which was listed as self contained only at the time). However, we got there and it seemed to be the same site with the Alexandrina side being for long stay caravans and the McGregor side for everyone else. We ended up staying at McGregor - which was great. A bit confusing at first but the McGregor site has toilets and taps and definitely allows non self contained vehicles - or tents!
Great location and very cheap ($5 per person). There are toilets and a sink with a pump tap; however, the toilets are long-drops and you have to take all your rubbish with you upon leaving (this includes your used toilet paper). If that puts you off, this place is not for you. We on the other hand, loved the fact that we went to bed with a beautiful starry night view and woke up to a stunning view of the lake and surrounding mountains. All in all, a decent campsite for the price.
Drove to the site & saw sign saying it was closed for winter.
A sign on the main road, would have been helpful, as this was a long & unnecessary drive.
Beautiful spot, toilets and washing up facilities. Quiet and great veiw.
