OK guys and gals
I am heading to Lake Lenthalls on the above mentioned weekend to chase some barra and big bass. It is a comp weekend so hopefully a lot of you will be able to fit the dates in.
Lenthalls is just past Maryborough (3 1/2 - 4 hrs from Brisbane) and it is a dirt track to get in but a 4wd is not necessary. Here is a link to the dams info.http://www.widebaywater.qld.gov.au/resi ... alldam.php
Upon reading this site again it appears that the 6am-4pm restriction still applies which sucks but we have to abide by it as there is a locked gate keeping us out. I am going to camp there Australia Day weekend so I will check it out to see if it has been lifted. The 6 knot speed limit is still in place which is great.
Camping from memory costs $4.50 a night there is an honour box system in place and a tag must be shown on your tent. Camp ground facilities include male/female toilets, rainwater tank that always seems to have plenty of water although it is not reccomended to drink it so bring your own drinking water, shower room with cold water shower and a place to hang your own shower bag with hot water. Mobiles get no reception, nearest place for ice etc is the servo on the highway about 15 minutes away. There is a swimming hole there that is freezing cold most of the time but you warm up after a while in it. It is a good place to test the limitations of your yak, standing up, how many guys can sit on it.Directions to Wongi State Forest camp ground
If heading from Brisbane drive straight past the Maryborough turnoff. You will then pass Sexy Coffee and a servo on your right, keep on the highway for a few more km's and there will be an overtaking lane. At the end of the overtaking lane you need to take a left hand turn that is sign posted Wongi State Forest. Follow this dirt road, you will pass the turn off to Lenthalls on your right, keep going straight until you come across a concrete causeway that is about 200mtrs long, after this causeway you need to take a left hand turn where it is signposted for the camp grounds.
