This campground provides great views, particularly at sunset. Walkers can follow a 1km track to the Wimmera River before returning to the campgrounds.

Ackle Bend camping area is located on the Wimmera River, south of Dimboola via an unsealed road that is suitable for two wheel drive vehicles.

Advance bookings and payment are required year round.

There are 10 unpowered sites available with a maximum of 6 people per site. Sites cater for tent-based camping, caravans, campervans and camper trailers. Generators are not permitted.

Remember: Red Gums are particularly prone to dropping large branches at any time without warning. The safest place for all visitors to enjoy a rest, pitch their tent, park their car or have a picnic is in a clear area away from large trees.

Non-flush toilets, shared fireplaces and shared picnic tables are provided.

No drinking water supplied – supply your own. Limited non-potable water may be available from a rainwater tank on site.

Only allowed in designated fireplaces – supply your own wood.

There is no rubbish collection at this campground, please take all rubbish with you.

Dogs and other pets are not permitted.
