From the campground there is easy access north to Mungo Rainforest walk and south to Tamboi walking track and Mungo walking track. Being right on the lake means there are great opportunities to go for a kayak or canoe along the lower Myall River to Hawks Nest.

A short walk from the campground leads to the beach, where you go swimming, fishing and sailboarding. If you’re clever enough to catch a fish, you can cook it up for dinner on one of the barbecues in the campground.
