Blue Gums Van Park, Dogs OK. VIC

Postby knoath » Fri Nov 20, 2009 7:33 am

Heading up to Blue Gums Caravan Park, Eildon between Christmas and New Year's.
It's a dog friendly park which is great as we want to take our 2 Staffies along for their first camping trip.
Looks like a small, intimate park with a few permanent vans, a sprinkling of luxury cabins, powered and unpowered sites (right on the banks of the Goulburn river)
Swimming pools, playground BBQs etc.
Has anyone stayed here before?

I'll post pics and a review when we get home.

Great looking park. Some very well priced onsite vans for sale as well.

That's what I thought Gypsy!
I'll have a sneak around and see what sort of vibe there is... can't see the missus wanting to keep going back to the same place everytime... but you never know... the fact they allow dogs is a big bonus!
Only a shrt 2hr drive from our place (could be less), so that's good.

Her sister has a van at Cottonwood CP on the Murray at Moama and they are up there every weekend it seems, so they get their money's worth (fees are astronomical I reckon!).
We've been up there a few times but NYE and Xmas in general, it's like a regional city!!!!
Too many people for my liking and I doubt this little CP would attract such a big crowd, especially as Lake Eildon isn't what it used to be.

I don't know how much - if any - water is in Lake Eildon but it used to be very popular for boats and skiing.
Sounds like a nice place to relax :)

I asked how much water was in the river (the CP's got river frontage, about 5 k's from the dam wall) and the owner said it is regulated, but there's always water there, so that's great to hear!
Don't know how much longer Lake Eildon will be a lake at the rate it's dropping.

Many years ago (30?) my Uncle was hiring out Jet Skis from Peppin Point not far from the Bonnie Doon bridge... the lake was chockers!!! Last time I was up there (2 yrs?) you couldn't see any water at all.
Sad.

Still, that shouldn't worry us too much!
