Lake Doxa is an artificial lake in western Corinthia, Greece. It is situated at an elevation of 900 m, in the municipal unit Feneos, near the village ancient Feneos. Construction was completed in the late 1990s. It is fed and drained by the small river Doxa, which empties into the plain of Feneos. In the heart of the lake on a small peninsula features a small church of Agios Fanourios. The Saint George Monastery in Feneos was relocated to higher ground, north of the lake. The lake is surrounded by pine forests.
We have already been in this location several times either for an overnight or as a starting point for several hiking and mountaineering activities.
Lake Doxa is also ideal for wild camping and other outdoor activities for families. In fact, is perhaps one of the most suited locations in southern Greece.
As soon we arrived in Lake Doxa we wanted to go and camp again in our favourite location which is in the woods and not on the shores of the lake. In this way, we are able to camp under the trees which provide the much needed shadow from the sun, but also more peace compared to the often crowded lake shore.
Spotting the location and setting up the camp
Our favourite location to camp is just bellow the Dourdouvana peak and not far away from the starting point of the trail that leads to “Diaselo Kinigou”.
On that spot, there is plenty of space under the trees, the ground is quite equalised and the bonus is that the car can be parked quite close by. Therefore, it is very “Family Frindly” spot and I highly recommend it.
