Absolutely beautiful spot to camp. Very private area beside the dam. Gary and Christina were perfect hosts as well as their very friendly dogs. Camping area very well kept - toilet in fantastic condition and very clean. Property very easy to find.

What a hidden gem this camp is. Great location by the dam. Gary has gone to a lot of effort with planting trees, mowed grass and even a surprise with a slab for vans. Just a short detour of the highway. Would definitely stay here again.

The big dam. Even has a concrete slab!Signage at start of access road

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to stay the night.
I was really looking forward to my stay after seeing pictures on Hipcamp as everything looked so peaceful . And the bonus of getting some fresh eggs too.
I will be back that way again and hope to get to stay for a bit longer to make up for it .

Beautiful peaceful spot. Friendly dogs and nice lighting. Pity about the campers next to us who brought their generator to spoil it.
