The blog is to encourage others to get out there and see their own backyard. Even if its day trips, weekends, holidays or full time travel we do it all. We love to share our travel experiences, thoughts and costs.
Planning our Wedding in March 2019 then taking off immediately after to Road Trip and Work Australia.
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.
