It’s been a number of years since we visited or even camped at Wooroonook Lake. As the lake is central to the towns of Donald, Charlton and Wycheproof and only a 27km drive from home, we thought it would best to go and camp the night with our family and friends.

In such a drought stricken region it really is wonderful to see the improvement of the facilities here, Wooroonook offers 10 Powered Sites, BBQs, Playground, Pontoon, walking track, boating, fishing, water skiing, swimming and a lovely patch of Green Grass which is not very common in this area!

For campers there are fire pits provided, plenty of rubbish bins and sandy sloping camp sites. If your fully rigged up and don’t require power there are many spots around the lake that are available.

The only criticism would be the toilets and showers; whilst they are functional they are  dated and could do with a revamp.

The Wooroonook Foreshore relies on the honesty of campers for the upkeep of the lake and to continue to have the flow of water coming into it.

Camping Rates are follows;

Powered Site- Members $10 Per Night, Non Member $15 per night.

Members Weekly Rate $60, Non Member Weekly Rate $100

Non Powered Site- $5

Boat Launch Fee $10

We urge all our readers, do the right thing and leave your money in the donation/honesty box. It’s a beautiful spot and it’s a privilege to have water in a lake. Small regional communities rely on the income from tourists so if you’re planning to camp at Lake Wooroonook be sure to pay your camping fees and pay a visit to the towns of Donald, Charlton or Wycheproof.
