Mate ill make sure there is a thread started in regards to the caravan park if i get removed for the park for what hes accusing us for. I know it sounds bad by giving him a bad rap, but until you read up on the whole situation, ill let you guys be the judge. We've been poorly mistreated and i dont let things go easily if i know im not in the wrong. Simple as that.

As for doonstock 09, we'lll have to wait and see.

well no comments will be made as i believe the issue was resolved over a couple hour conversation and some convincing that we were in the right. Im not going to give out the story as i believe the owner of the park has realised he was in the wrong and ill give him the benifit of the doubt.

As for the comment about lakeside, i do like your park and have friends that have vans there, but mate you guys havent seen water for years, we still have water to 10%. Why would i wanna drive to goughs to put my boat in? :roll:

We put our boat in off the bank when camping in the pines. Just need to find a good solid spot and you shouldn't have a problem. We launch our Malibu response with our Nissan Navara and get it in and out with out an issue! There are always pleanty of 4x4 s around if you do get stuck :)

Yeah you may struggle a bit. The closest ramp is Goughs Bay, depending on how far in you camp it's about an hour round trip.

Yeah it takes about an hour or more on the water you have to go all the way around past Eildon. Best to take a map or your iPhone as a guide if you dont know the lake well. Many places to get lost! Alternatively you can launch at Bonnie Doon on the way in, you would get there before the car but cuts out a fair bit of travel time.

Hey guys...

A couple of work mates are wanting to camp at 'Delatite Arm Reserve' around October and want me to bring my boat.

Around here I think... V
Camp.jpg


Couple of questions:

I am not sure I will camp with them... I am thinking of staying maybe at Mansfield Country Resort and just boating down to them
I beleive they have a ramp is that correct? and how long to boat down to them.

If i do decide to camp what are my options for getting the boat in, are the access roads ok to this camp spot and are there any ramps on this side of the lake?

Any info would be greaty appreciated as I have never been to 'Eildon' before :D

With your MB, you would be best staying at the country club or Mansfield lakeside ski village, its also in the Ford inlet but closer to Mansfield, about 7 km's out of town. its about a 10 - 15 minute run. If you want to camp you may be able to pay to leave your car and trailer at 1 of these parks, it would also be handy for fuel runs etc. That area has been pretty good to us, we have been using the Delatite arm for the last couple of seasons and find most day trippers dont come this far up as Bonnie dDoon is the nearest public ramp. :)

d1,

What is the road like to the camping spots on the Delatite arm?
Do you launch your boat just from the river back or boat it around?

Also just out of interest is it too much hard work towing over the black spur (from Bewick), or do i just have to suck it up as there is no real other way to go :?

I have never actually been into the pines yet, I have a place on the water at Burnt Creek, next inlet down from Ford Inlet and we usually put in off the bank or we sometimes bring it in at Bonnie Doon on the way home if it looks to boggy.

I live in the Nthern suburds but most of my neighbours are from the south or south east and the go through Yarra glen-yea-bonniedoon.

ddiddy13 if you dont like the black spur go up the monash to east link and head through yarra glen and yea.
yarra glen bakery always a good spot for a feed, and we stock up on supplies in yea before we get to bonnie doon
this way takes a bit longer than the spur.

It's more that I have never used the road (even without the boat), and I have no idea how bad/good the road really is.

I am probably worring about nothing, just want to avoid the crying baby/nagging wife/thunderstorm/run out of fuel situation :doh:

How bad is it really? are you in/out and its not that big of a deal?

its approx 15klms of winding road. log trucks use it, so can be a slow drive up/down if you are following one.
google earth it. its starts at healesville.

Towing the MB, yarraglen would sound good to me.

Also when you put it into whereis, the spur is longer in distance and time.

I've towed the boat (mastercraft) through the spur heaps of times.. Been through in sun, rain, thunderstorms, day, night. Its really not that bad, I quite like driving through it. Just dont cut corners becuase you never know whats coming.

I agree with wato, it's not that bad. I've done it with my Tige a fair few times... In all conditions as well. In saying that though if your a nervous driver I'd avoid it.

Hey ddiddy13,

Mate hows things, i have the MB 220V and drive to Eildon every couple of weeks. As you know the MB's are quite wide on the road. The spur i travel through a lot. If you are not towing yeah awesome road to drive through, but when towing such a wide boat i would definately go yarra glen/yea. The spur starts in Healsville and than gets quite narrow in some spots before you come out of it....just my advice...

Cheers Dave

Thanks for all you input guys....

It really just comes down to with kids everthing just takes longer and I rather be a little cautious just in case.

And if it is easier enough to go through Yarra Glen / Yea and doesnt add much time to the trip (WhereIs / Google Maps say an extra 15 mins) then it may not be worth the hassel.

Beaumaris Bay is about 18 degrees right now - hoping that we can find somewhere at Eildon that isn't much colder than that!
