Yambuk Lake Caravan park is a quiet small caravan park with a total of 33 sites, 25 powered and a further 8 non powered . Its the perfect place to relax and unwind, located about half way between Warnambool, Portland Port Fairy is a short 15 minute drive, you will find plenty to see and do in the area or for those who are looking for a longer journey why not take a trip along the Great Ocean Road to Port Campbell taking in all the sights along the way and continue to the 12 Apostles. The park managers are just lovely they take the time to have a chat and a laugh. The amenities are spotless in presentation a fantastic undercover BBQ area with tables and bench seats with further seating on a lush lawn area. The park has a shared camp kitchen and laundry facilities for every one to use. The Ocean is around 500 meters away the Caravan Park has fantastic views of Lake Yambuk that has a boat ramp and a pontoon jetty for fishing. The Yambuk Slide is on the way to the Ocean and above the slide is a lookout with views of the entire area. Its the perfect place for your next getaway.

This camp-site is lovely if you are looking for a quiet time away. Liz and Alf who run the park are lovely to deal with and made us feel welcome since day 1. The beach is a short walk from the caravan park and the lake a stone throw away. We enjoyed our stay so much we've rebooked for next year.

Camping at Yambuk Lake Caravan Park gives you the perfect opportunity to relax and recharge. The staff are so friendly and accomodating and the facilities are always clean and tidy!! The new addition of the undercover area with a TV was nice to see completed this year. The fire pit / pond was an interesting addition. Enjoyed short walks to the beach, the big slide, swimming in the lake, activities for the kids and New Years Eve Fireworks nearby. Plenty of day trips to neighbouring towns within 30mins drive. The weather was a great escape from summer heat. The only thing missing was visiting food vans and small supplies available at the Park Office (Port Fairy Parks have these facilities, not sure why this one doesn’t also). This park is a perfect escape that is like a hidden paradise. Thanks Elf and Liz for your hospitality, I’ll be back again next year!! Cheers, JM

If travelling along the Princes Highway, you see the sign Yambuk Lake CP, turn in and you will find a lovely small park, clean ammenities, including camp kitchen, and a lovely view over the lake. Stroll down to the jetty and throw in your line to catch a fish for dinner, then cook on the BarBQue. Sit back and relax and listen to the quiet as you unwind.

It is a very basic caravan park at affordable prices. They use tank water so make sure you bring water with you as you cannot hook up van to a water supply, this was not stated until after we booked. The managers are super friendly and very helpful and keep the area clean and very tidy. There is a basic camp kitchen and lovely bbq area which is all that you need for a comfortable stay. The lake is just metres away and some good fish are to be had. It was very windy and raining most of the time we were there, but in better weather would have been a lovely place to stay. Due to water restrictions, the showers are on a 4 min timer, it is enough but be prepared to have a quick dip. PS to the managers. Please replace the chair in the ladies shower block as it is ready to collapse. PS the washing machines are super cheap and the dryers are free.

Lovely location, lovely small park with very clean amenities, even though not many. Very friendly, Liz & Alec, operators meet you as you enter & show you to your park. Park is very isolated, 5km off the main road to Portland, just 20 km from Port Fairy. Beautiful & quiet listening to the surf beach just up the river entrance. There are plenty of fish to be caught in this beautiful lake/Inlet, including 36cm Bream when we were there.

This is a small intimate caravan park with powered and unpowered sites available overlooking the Lakes and River .... We love it as always ,.. walked 8+ kms each day either on the beach and/or across the rolling paddocks in the vacinity ... rewarded with huge mushrooms which cooked up beautifully. Kayacked the Lakes and watched the locals catch plenty of fish. Great management, facilities and amenities and the recent camp eating area is a great bonus which is sheltered from ALL prevailing winds.
