Lake Houdraman Camping Area is a particularly nice spot and is worth the extra few km to get there. Plenty of waterbirds providing good photography opportunities. Can camp right alongside the foreshore of the lake.
You won't need 4WD unless there has been a lot of rain, in which case you may need a helicopter.

Just ten minutes out of Quilpie, with plenty of room along the foreshore for travellers. All pretty flat, all with views of the lake and most with part or full shade. Good phone reception, but you will need to go hunting for firewood or collect it on the way out from Quilpie. Plenty of birdlife, including emu's wading in the lake.

Great spot to lay back and relax. The Lake is slightly muddy but if you travel with Alum, you are never out of water. Use one heaped teaspoon of Alum to 20L of water.
