Yarrie Lake Camping


4.8 from 28 users


Yarrie Lake boasts magnificent sunrises and sunsets, an abundance of birdlife, kangaroos and yabbies. This enormous watery expanse is encircled by shady trees and sandy beaches, with shelters, tables, chairs and camp oven pits also lining the edges. The marvelous sunsets make Yarrie Lake a popular spot for photographers, while others come here to enjoy water sports or a touch of yabbying. Before launching boats, please call the caretaker to inquire about boat licences. Although not particularly deep, Yarrie Lake is a busy hive of activity in summer, strewn with boats and water skiers. Travellers seeking a little peace will love the quiet isolation, while powered sites, hot showers, toilet, laundry facilities and on-site drinking water bring that touch of civilisation to this bush camping experience. There are unlimited camping spots available amongst the shady gum trees around the lake. Volunteer caretakers are generally living at the lake and campers are asked to check in with them prior to setting up camp. Please consult the caretaker in regards to possible fire restrictions before using the wood burning barbecues and fire rings provided. Yarrie Lake is also a great spot for caravans, motorhomes and tents, and some powered sites are available. The road is sealed from Narrabri up to one kilometre from the amenities block. Those wishing to use the lake for skiing must apply for a licence through the Yarrie Lake Flora & Fauna Reserve Trust. Pets are not permitted at the lake.

Nice place to stay. Very peaceful this time of year. Left yesterday after 3 nights. Had heavy rain 1st night and a cloudy day, so had caravan on powered site backing onto Lake. Very friendly caretaker Peter. Lake was very full, couldn't walk around Lake as one end of foot bridge under water. Would definitely stay again.
