The Boreen Point Camping ground is right on the edge of Lake Cootharaba.

In Summer, it would be great, as it is set amongst plenty of Paper Bark Trees, you would be in shade most of the day.
Most of the campsites are unpowered, with only eight having power. They are not set out very well, and even though the campground was nearly empty, some people had trouble manouvering there Vans out of their site. This was because of Trees, and the way the sites were laid out, they hadn't been thought out!

The Amenities were clean, not spotless. The shower cubicle was small, and the shower sprayed most of the area making it hard to keep clothes dry. The water was hot. There was no laundry here, nor sullage points. Water was Bore water, but some Rainwater was available. There is a new undercover BBQ area and seating.

The lake is shallow, and there is a sandy beach making this campground very popular in the school holidays and during public holidays. During these times, you would need to book for a powered site. Other sites are taken on a first come, first served basis.
At other times it is quite quiet.

The campground hires out Catamarans.

I think this park is great if you have children, or if you want to chill out in a quiet spot by a beach & Lake.

I did think the price was high compared to other Parks that had more amenities.

Cost in 2010 for a powered site for 2 people was.....$24 a night
