Greens Lake is now closed


As of midnight Wednesday 25/3/2020, Greens Lake has been closed until further notice. All other camping sites in the district, including Aysons reserve, have also been closed until further notice. I believe these closures apply to all camping sites in Victoria. cryconfuse

Thanks for that info, Richard

I feel for a lot of Grey Nomads, who are on the old age pension, who will have to go into a caravan park, unless they can make other arrangements

Yes Doug, Gates locked and no entry signs displayed also. Fay and I were the last to leave...MGWater reps were very firm and unhappy about the late departure at 09:30am!!! They observed us at all times from 07:00am until our departure from the camp site and locked the gates behind us. They had expected us to leave by midnight earlier, bearing in mind that a MGWater rep visited the evening prior at 19:00pm and gave 5 hours notice to vacate Greens, which everyone ignored until the early morning. There would have been around 20-30 campers at Greens and everyone was keeping to themselves. I expect they got in early to stop the Easter crowds from arriving.

Some of the other campers had no idea where they were to go and some were under medical care by local doctors.

All camp sites in the area are locked out...and I was led to believe that caravan parks were not an option unless you were currently a long term resident at the CP.

The situation was most confusing and information provided very unclear.

Apart from that... all seems well! confuseno

Oh, and nobody at Greens admitted to be suffering from the pandemic. biggrin

What a shame. Might even be the end of GreenS.

I am safely tucked up in my aluminium teepee in my home state, in isolation, so all being equal should be OK. The only thing that worries me is if I have an argument with myself, who kicks who out confuse

At the close of today I will be set up properly as only arrived yesterday from NSW. I will take this isolation time to have a big sort out of teepee and tug I reckon. Glad I've got my own toot and shower. 

I would have been starting my northern migration to Townsville today, bugga. 

 

Keep Safe out there everyone.

Long way from any beach Craig. I did yell out 'hi' to you as I came through Albury/Wodonga.

 Yes, and there are a few camping at the moment.

The Cup long weekend was very busy.

Toilets, hot showers and dump point open as are bbq's.

No rubbish bins anymore.
