Woods Lake camping area (bush camping)

Camper trailer Dogs allowed Free No rubbish disposal Vehicle-based camping Wood fireplace Boat ramp Canoeing Fishing Lookout

There are bush-camping sites between the boat ramp and the dam wall, as well as around the north-eastern edge of the lake. No facilities are provided, so you need to bring firewood and water. Because this is a popular camping area, special care should be taken to bury waste away from the shore. To get here, turn off Poatina Rd (B51) to Arthurs Lake Dam, heading along 15 km of steep gravel road past the dam. If you are towing a boat, you may need a 4WD on this road, even though it has been upgraded.

This campsite is located in Woods Lake Lakeside Reserve

This lakeside reserve encircles Woods Lake in the central highlands. It is one of the state’s most exciting trout fisheries, with high catch rates, especially for early season anglers. The lake offers fly-fishing, trolling or casting. Locals suggest the delightfully named squidgy flick baits or woolly bugger flies as your top choices here, or maybe an evil minnow or shimmy shrimp. The road from Arthurs Lake to Woods Lake has been upgraded and now offers better access.
