      Stayed at the Eagle Point Caravan park this time which is also directly across the raod from the lake.

      Just be aware that there is very sharp rocks that extend about 3 metres into the lake (I am guessing to stop errosion) which can do some serious damage to your feet. So either wear booties or walk your gear about another 200m up the lake to where there is a nice sandy beach.

      The wind was a bit inconsistant from the East but was a fun place to sail.

      I mostly windsurfer foiled so the water wat plenty deep enough for that but you need to walk out about 50 metres before it is deep enough.

      This is a really nice bit of safe water and when the wind blows in the right direction (of which it works in several directions) it is a great place to sail.

      We stayed at the Lake King Waterfront Caravan Park which was a lovely place to stay and I could leave my sail rigged right in front of my campsite with just a few steps to the launching area.

      The water is pretty clean although a little brackish and was quite warm when I sailed there in November. The bottom was sandy with some muddy patched but was pretty clear of rocks and shells meaning I had no need to wear booties.

      The main foreshore launching area is few a few hundred metres to the North and has an even nicer beach to launch and a safe swimming beach for the kids (plus public toilets and a kids play area).

      The only disadvantage of this place to stay is you have to drive 5ks to Paynesville if you want to visit a bar or restaurant. But of that is not your thing, staying at Eagle Point is a great option.

      Eagle Point is also very central to other spots on the Gippsland Lakes so if the wind direction is not right here on the day, jump in that car and drive to one of the other great spots nearby.
