Camping at Lake Spicer

Postby Tortoise » Sat 06 Jan, 2024 8:10 pm

Looks like the only place to camp at Lake Spicer would be on the road (or wrapping around button grass). Any other reasonable options people have found in the area? Ta for your thoughts.

I found one small site off the track that I could squeeze the Nallo into and that was it. Right hand side (looking at the lake) and maybe 100m back from the water. Everything else is buttongrass, scrub or wet.

It depends on what you're going in for. If it's for Marble Bluff, I found a good spot late in the day somewhere along Unconformity Ridge, with water from nearby soaks. Only other places I've camped in the area are up on Sticht Range (lots of options and lovely open walking, but the connection to Walford has some gunge) and the rise just east of Walford that's accessed via a steep old side track.
