For anyone wanting to get to Lake Woods, there is a grid just north of the township of Elliott. On the left hand side as you are heading north, after the grid, there is a track. Turn onto the track and continue along this track for 11 kms. there are picnic tables next to the lake, and plenty of places to camp. the night we were there, there were roughly 20 groups of caravans and campers.
