The Lions Park Rest Area in Huntly is a conveniently located free campground on the outskirts of Bendigo. There is room to pitch tents and park RVs around a central gravel area, and there is a small picnic rotunda as well as a separate undercover electric barbecue area. 

At the back-right of the campground, a walking track crosses the seasonal Back Creek via a narrow bridge and heads through the adjacent Huntly Gardens Natural Reserve for a peaceful stroll among the trees.

A toilet block is situated right alongside the entrance to the campground. 

This small campground can get busy, but it is set in a great location within Bendigo.

I agree with Trish! That man has been camped there for about 18 months-I rang the:council-they said they can't do anything, so it's up to you guys :( Now there are about another 4/5 cars there, plus cars, all camped near him, with seemingly no intention of leaving-this is annoying when we all pay rates, mortgages, rent etc and this bozo gets away with living scot-free. Please do something about this situation-even some signs saying you can only stay a week, or get an official to come out and move them all on. It really is an eyesore, and I would be afraid to call in just to go to the toilet. Thank you, Sue

Why do we bother commenting when absolutely nothing has been done? I understand the man in question is homeless, but surely there are some agencies in Bgo that can deal with this issue, and find him somewhere to live? There is now a man in a caravan living there-no car, so he has no way to move the van(another homeless dude abusing the system). C'mon guys, do something about this issue ASAP....please
