Beside Meadowbank Lake, this grassy camping and picnic area has sites that can accommodate big rigs. Perfect for waterskiers and anglers, there’s a launching ramp close by on the eastern side of Dunrobin Bridge. The lake is the final section of the Derwent River Hydro-electricity Scheme and the last of the catchment’s 10 power stations is at the foot of the Meadowbank Dam downstream. As the campground is on Hydro land, campers can stay for a maximum of 7 days. Access is through a gate on Ellendale Rd (the C608), just west of Dunrobin Bridge, 2 km from the Lyell Hwy. Bring water and firewood.
