Green Hill Lake with an area of 260 hectares is located just 4 kms from Ararat on the Western Highway east of Ararat and has a concrete walking and cycling path which runs from the city to the lake. The lake is known for its redfin and trophy trout fishing.

Camping is free at the lake however a donation of $5 per site per night helps the Green Hill Lake Development Board maintain the area and they have recently installed a $50,000 playground There is no need to book as there are acres of camping places. There are no powered sites but hot water showers are available in the first amenities block. A number of drinking water taps are located throughout the park however we ask that caravans not be connected to them. A Ranger visits the lake each day and can advise on tourist places to visit around Ararat or rules of the lake etc. Eight solid fuel BBQs have been placed around the lake and split wood supplied by Rotary can be purchased at $8 per bag from Ranger Max. There are four different shelter buildings, one with a large lawned area and table and chairs. An RV black water dump point is located in Ararat in Alexander Avenue opposite the Alexander lake and gardens.

The lake has two boat ramps and a pontoon and caters for skiing, fishing and sailing boats. swimming, bird watching, canoeing and walking. Many planted native trees have created bush land type settings around the area and have attracted many different bird species.

Ararat has a thriving shopping centre with everything visitors would require and is close to the Grampians, Mount Cole Park, Langi Ghiran State Park, many wineries and tourist attractions such as Gum san Chinese Heritage Centre, JWard gaol for the criminally insane, Langi Morgola Museum and the Railway Heritage Museum.
