Jack Smith camping area (bush camping)

Camper trailer Free No dogs/pets No rubbish disposal Vehicle-based camping Walking trails

Camping in the exposed bushland around shallow Jack Smith Lake allows you to observe cormorants, swans, pelicans, teals, egrets and many other waterbirds as they pursue insects and other food around the lake; sea eagles and falcons can also be spied soaring overhead. The remnants of Aboriginal camps, dusted with charcoal and shells, lie throughout the reserve. There are no facilities in the vicinity of the lake, so come well-equipped for your stay.

This campsite is located in Jack Smith Lake State Game Reserve

This game reserve is well-known to birdwatchers, who come here to marvel at the amazing variety of waterbirds that descend on the area’s marshes and lagoons. Set up camp on a grassy plain and listen to the birdsong, or go surf fishing off nearby Ninety Mile Beach. Follow Stringy Bark La off the South Gippsland Hwy at Woodside; alternatively, take Middle Rd off the highway near Darriman.
