There is a free camping area with no facilities on the banks of this hydro lake, so if the campground at Cradle Mountain is full (as it often is), this may be a good alternative, provided you are completely self-sufficient (come with firewood and drinking water). Turn west off the Cradle Mountain Rd (C132), 1 km south of Moina, then follow a dirt road to a gate signposted ‘camping but please shut the gate’, just before a white bridge. The area is an unshaded, open paddock on private land. There is another small site beneath the bridge.
