Lovely spot to take in the local area. Close to Maldon and Castlemaine.
Basic amenities. Shower pressure excellent. Drinking water available to sites. Great spot for fishing and kayaking. Kiosk with all your needs. Exceptionally friendly staff. Loved our stay. Some noisy neighbours but that can't be helped.

Date of stay: March 2019

The park is basic but exactly as you would like for a quiet time and get away. There is not a lot to do which makes it perfect for a quiet getaway ,fishing and swimming would be the main things.
The toilets are clean and tidy and the office staff are quite helpful.

This caravan park is on the shoreline of Cairn Curran, a disused reservoir at Welshman's Reef, between Newstead and Maldon in central Victoria. There is not a lot to speak of: when I stayed it was very hot, dry and dusty, the only excitement being a local yokel's expensive Harley Davidson soft tail getting bogged in the quagmire about 1.5km from my campsite! Lots of cabins/caravans here but a lot are in disrepair, others obviously occupied occasionally. But when Cairn Curran drops, so too does the opportunity for any activity involving water sports, such as skiing, kayaking or swimming. It was a 1.2km walk to any sort of water from camp (no significant rain for more than a year). Toilets are very old but everything is serviceable, but one shower switched from hot to cold water frequently — the second was stable. A lot of unpowered campsites are on rocky ground so tent pegs don't go in easily (if at all!). Very little shade for campers. Water on tap is not fit for consumption as it is drawn from the reservoir by pumps and unfiltered. BYO water, definitely. Friendly caretaker owners who do their best to run a business as nature tightens her noose with little water to any sort of activity and nothing else to do. Patchy mobile connectivity. No WiFi. No entry past boom gate unless you've paid for your stay. Day visitor car park outside gate.

Room tip: Take plenty of shade covering if planning a camp in the summer months. BYO water essential.
