Lakeside destinatio­n is calling


LOCATED on the banks of Lake Sambell, and only minutes from the Beechworth town centre, Lake Sambell Caravan Park is perfectly placed to base yourself for the weekend, a week or even longer.

Offering fully self-contained ensuite cabins, all of which maximise views of the lake and park grounds, and on-site caravans as well as powered and unpowered campsites, Lake Sambell provides accommodat­ion to suit every budget.

For those who’d prefer to camp out among the grand trees or sit beside a campfire and toast marshmallo­ws, you can do just that when you secure one of the powered or unpowered sites - your hosts will even provide the firewood.

Pets are welcome all year round except over the Easter break and are accepted in guests’ own accommodat­ion (caravan or tent), as well as in the two new specific pet-friendly cabins.

The park boasts a clean amenities block with laundry, clothes dryer and baby bath, undercover BBQ areas, playground, mini golf, volleyball court, LPG bottles and a well-stocked kiosk. There is also access to a number of walking trails including the five kilometre walk to Lake Kerferd, the path around Lake Sambell and the 15 minute walk to the centre of town where you can enjoy the charming old-world granite buildings and wide tree-lined streets.

There is plenty of room for the kids to ride their bikes inside the park as well as around the streets of Beechworth, along the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail or out to the Mountain Bike Park.

Lake Sambell itself has a sandy beach area with a playground and BBQ areas and you can enjoy swimming or fishing in the lake or hire a canoe or kayak from the caravan park.

Beechworth is surrounded by beautiful forests and streams where you can fossick for precious stones or flakes of gold, explore the Beechworth Gorge, Woolshed Falls and family-owned vineyards or enjoy scenic drives and National Parks.

The thriving town of Beechworth has a number of highlights including daily walking tours, galleries, antiques, gift shops and a busy arts precinct with many specialty shops open seven days a week. For food lovers, cafes, pub meals, picnics, fine dining and of course the famed Beechworth Bakery awaits you.

Your hosts, Roger and Sue Humphris, look forward to welcoming you to Beechworth Lake Sambell Caravan Park soon so visit www.caravanpar­kbeechwort­ today.
