Information

Lake Indoon is a brackish, freshwater lake, which can change from totally dry to full depending on the season and amount of rainfall. The lake covers 130 hectares of the Lake Indoon Reserve, with a depth varying from approximately 1.5m – 5m depending on the seasons and rainfall. It is approximately 4.5kms around the lake, via the beach. Lake Indoon is fed from Erindoon and Bindoon creeks, and fills up by the end of winter. Overflow from Lake Indoon drifts back in to the Lake Logue system.

Lake Indoon is located in the Carnamah Shire, along the Eneabba-Coolimba Road. It is approximately 12km west of Eneabba and 19km east of Indian Ocean Drive.

Fees: Camping at Lake Indoon is free, maximum of 72 hours, the pre-booking of camp sites is not available.

The Lake Indoon facilities include camping grounds around the lake, an ablution block with showers (no hot water), and a tank for drinking water. The boat ramp has been reconstructed, making it a sturdy, concrete structure. A gas BBQ and picnic area is available for your use near the boat ramp on the north side of the Lake. Murals have been painted on the ablution block and drinking water tank by local artists.

Dogs in the Lake Indoon reserve must be on a leash – penalties exist if dog is found unrestrained.
There is an all-year fire ban on campfires and cooking fires in the Lake Indoon reserve. Gas BBQs are available.

All water activities are at your own risk. Jet Skis are prohibited. For levels and condition of the Lake, contact the Shire of Carnamah office on 08 9951 7000.

All off-road and 4WD vehicles (including motorbikes, ATV's and beachbuggies) are prohibited from the reserve. We request that people and vehicles stick to the designated tracks. Camping is permissible on the beach and allocated camping grounds.

The bird life is abundant, with over 50 species noted by the former local Ranger. Kangaroos and Emus also use the lake as a watering ground, best seen at dusk.
A Shire representative is often on-site at Lake Indoon and a Nursing Post and Ambulance is located at Eneabba.
