We were going to freecamp but the wind coming across the water was very unpleasant when we arrived and there was a storm coming so we decided to moved on. There were several people camped on the east side.

When the lake has enough water, this is a beautiful place for motorsport and often is full of boats, jet skis and fishermen. A great place to visit and take in the scenery.

Lake Burrumbeet has always been a popular place for locals and travellers alike. It is a large lake great for waters sports and fishing. Unfortunately over the years the water levels can drop rapidly so it's best to check before taking out a watercraft
