Roads and Access
Florence Lake Forest Service Road is an active industrial road. It is gravel and has bumps and potholes. It can be muddy after heavy rain and dusty during the dry season. Good tires are recommended to avoid flat tires.
Sayres Lake has a steep hill for the last 2km, all types of vehicles get up there but depending on your setup you may need a 4wd.
The sites vary greatly in size and shape, and it depends on how good you are at maneuvering your vehicle. We recommend that if you are unsure about fitting in a site or unsure about the road conditions and suitability of your rig that you drive up and look for yourself.
We have divided the site sizes into three categories, but it is difficult to specify if you can fit due to the range of factors involved.
Small site - trailers up to 18' in length
Medium site - trailers up to 24' in length
Large site - trailers above 24' in length
