Lake Mackintosh Camping Area provides a level grassy area suitable for any size rig as well as some space for tents. This is a beautiful place to stay for up to a week. There is a second camping area near the boat ramp.
There is a large flat area between the 2 boat ramps which is suitable for caravans. Lakeside areas are fairly small. When the lake is low there is access to an island for camping.

Narrow one way access across the dam wall and down over the spillway. One old picnic table. Several fire stone pits.

Good mobile phone signal. No rubbish bins or other facilities.

The road over the second (west) dam wall is a dead end! You can camp there around but leave room for others to use the turnaround.
