Doaks Reserve is a basic riverside reserve on the Campaspe River, just five minutes down the road from Lake Eppalock and twenty minutes from Bendigo.

A dirt/gravel track travels through the reserve to the Campaspe River, ending in a loop with plenty of clear space to park. 2wd vehicles will make it into this reserve in dry conditions. 

Fishing and Kayaking at Doaks Reserve

Doaks Reserve is a great spot for fishing and kayaking. The bank down to the water is fairly steep but it is still accessible.

Swimming at Doaks Reserve

There is a rope swing attached to a tree with a make-shift wooden ladder going up the trunk, but swimming is not advised here as you can see many submerged logs and branches in the water. 

Visitor facilities at Doaks Reserve

The only visitor facility here is a steel picnic table, set in the clearing alongside the river. There are no other visitor facilities here.

Please take all rubbish with you when you leave.
