This popular campground at the southern end of the national park is part of the privately run Lake St Clair Wilderness Lodge. It has shady sites for big rigs on the southern shore of Australia’s deepest lake. Check out the park’s impressive visitor centre, take the ferry to Narcissus Bay or walk the 1.5 hr Larmairremener tabelti Aboriginal cultural walk. At night, enjoy visits from resident wildlife or, if the weather is clear, admire the amazing night sky – fitting that Cynthia was the Greek goddess of the moon. Turn north off the Lyell Hwy at Derwent Bridge. The camping area is signposted 5 km along Lake St Clair Rd.
