Lake Purrumbete is a volcanic lake located in the Western District of Victoria, Australia. Lake Purrumbete is approximately 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) east of the town of Camperdown. The lake is in a shallow volcanic crater. The water is crystal clear most times of the year as the lake relies totally on its own catchment.
Lake Purrumbete is a prime destination for anglers chasing chinook salmon and rainbow and brown trout. The banks are heavily weeded at places, but the depth drops sharply once away from the bank, it can get more than 60 metres (200 ft) deep. There are heavy-duty boat ramps and jetties at the caravan park.
The Lake Purrumbete Caravan Park has cabins, ice, public toilets, mooring facilities, jetties, fish cleaning facilities, day parking and a dual lane concrete boat ramp. The park is on the foreshore at the lake’s southern end.
