It's a tiny lake, known for good salmon and trout fishing. Children enjoy the popular fishing competitions that are held there.
In the middle of Loch Cameron is an island with a handful of trees. It would make a good place to swim out to (if you weren't scared of eels!).
The reeds and bull rushes around the edge of the loch provide ideal spots for ducks to hide away.
I'm not sure if dogs are allowed at Loch Cameron or not - here are the two signs that were displayed at the entrance.
On still days the reflections around the loch are spectacular - imagine what it might look like in autumn?
Because it's not a very large lake/loch it only took about 20 minutes to walk around the perimeter.
At the end of the loch, I climbed up the bank to see how close the Pukaki Canal was. It's really close with only a narrow road in between.

Although you're not allowed to camp at Loch Cameron, it's a beaut place to stop for a picnic, try your luck at fishing, take a swim or enjoy a scenic walk.
