Lake Eppalock is a vast reservoir constructed on the Campaspe River in the 1960s. Lake Eppalock is a popular destination for boating, water sport, fishing, swimming, bushwalking, barbecues and picnics.

This part of Lake Eppalock is known as Kirrang Point and there is a double boat ramp here for public use. A toilet block is located a short walk away, shared between this spot and the Kirrang Point Swimming Area which is just around the corner. 

There are lots of fantastic visitor facilities at various locations around Lake Eppalock including multiple picnic areas with electric barbecues, four public boat ramps, several public toilet blocks, and a kiosk. Camping facilities are provided in multiple caravan parks around Lake Eppalock. Please note that free camping is not permitted around the reservoir. 

Lake Eppalock boasts a healthy supply of Golden Perch, Red Fin, Trout and Murray Cod. Red Fin is typically found in the Derrinal and Kimbolton pools (in the north sections of the lake) and Murray Cod and Golden Perch is typically found in the mouths of the Coliban and Campaspe Rivers. (source)
