Lake Purrumbete is a holiday and fishing haven! Located near Camperdown, a 2 hr drive from Melbourne. The Lake Purrumbete Holiday Park has cabins, ice, public toilets, mooring facilities, jetties, fish cleaning facilities, day parking and a dual lane concrete boat ramp capable of launching boats to 6 meters and another boat ramp capable of launching boats to 4.5 meters during periods of good water level. Purrumbete also offers that pleasurable opportunity to stay right near the boat ramp on the water’s edge with the Purrumbete caravan park.
It’s a very sociable time at the end of a session as anglers meet at the ramp with campers, people wander up to weigh a fish at the scales and then you can just head back to the cabin. Kids can trap minnows, dip net aquatic creatures or fish for eels at night.
New owner John Clements is also putting a lot of effort into catering for the keen angler by setting up a small tackle shop on site as well as stocking fresh baits like mudeyes and scrub worms.
Another good thing about Purrumbete is that unlike nearby Bullen Merri there is no water skiing.
If you’re looking for a clear water freshwater destination, with a bit of variety and the chance of catching a trophy fish, then Lake Purrumbete can be hard to go past.

Rex Hunt on Lake Purrumbete Holiday Park
Lake Purrumbete is without doubt the best place to catch a trophy trout in Victoria. Set in a beautiful location and has been stocked with Rainbow, Brown Trout, Chinook Salmon, Brook Trout, Redfin and Eel .
The lakes have a productive eco system with good hatches of duns, mudeyes, snails and freshwater shrimp which has enabled outstanding growth rates in the fish. This haven provides you with the perfect opportunity to catch double figure fish in the 10lb range as many of our clients can attest.
Lake Purrumbete is famous for it's gargantuan Trout, Salmon and redfin from its seemingly bottomless depths. It once held the world record for growth rates for 3-year-old rainbow trout at a mammoth 11.3kg! At more than 60 meters deep, I'm sure there are still some true monsters dwelling that still evade capture.
