Bell tent camping at Lake Moogerah

When we think of camping we don’t think plastic tents which break and blow away at the sight of a gust of wind or struggling to set something up for hours before sunset. We think durability, comfort and convenience. Enter The Seek Society bell tents, built to last and not for landfill. There’s nothing quite like camping under canvas, and a Seek bell tent fits the perfect vibe for car camping at Lake Moogerah for many years to come.

Activities at Lake Moogerah

Lake Moogerah is a popular destination for camping, boating, fishing, water-skiing or your casual lakeside picnic. For the anglers, the lake is stocked with Australian Bass, Golden Perch, Silver Perch, Mary River Cod and Saratoga. You will need a permit to fish here but there are no boating restrictions on the lake and two concrete launching ramps are provided. The Moogerah Peaks were formed from volcanic activity over 22 million years ago and consist of Mt French, Mt Greville, Mt Moon and Mt Edwards. These peaks are popular with bushwalkers and climbers and are known for their challenging terrain!
