Lake Somerset is a fabulous destination if you enjoy any form of water activity or just a nice day drive. Centrally located between Brisbane, Toowoomba and the Sunshine Coast. Only a short drive from the country towns of Kilcoy, Esk and Woodford.
There are a range of camping spots close by if you want to stay awhile. If you are simply looking for a day of activity, you can't beat the day use area and boat ramp area. This is such a super busy spot though, so arrive very early. Large queues for boat ramp, both in and out.
Only negative was the waters edge gets pretty choppy with all the boats and jet-ski's, which do not appear to slow down when coming near or leaving the dam edge, so not sure it is ideal for the very little children. Maybe head around the dam a little bit further away from the main boating activity. Not a lot of shade unless you have been one of the few fortunate to arrive at day break so pack a nice big tarp or shade structure of some form. Plenty of toilets (portaloo's) in handy locations. Nice clean park. Great day out had by all.
