Dam Crazy? You would have to be to bypass over 620 acres of scenic bushland off the beaten track for your next camping getaway or stopover on your way on the Bruce Highway.  An abundance of birdlife with over 135 different  species found so far including a Powerful Owl. A magnificent 400 megalitre dam that now forms part of the natural landscape of this unique property. 

A hidden gem in the Wide Bay/Fraser Coast area of Queensland where relaxation,  peace and privacy are unavoidable as are the sunsets and shooting stars in the clear skies above. 

The property is totally private and caravans cannot been seen from the road, the owners live on the property and only booked guests are to enter the property offering security and peace of mind. 

Whether you want to birdwatch, kayak, fish (catch and release only), hike or ride one of the many trails or sit, relax and read your favourite book, we promise a warm welcome; from the wildlife and the proprietors Miranda, Brendon and Esa the dog. 

Dam Crazy is also pet friendly, dogs must be cleaned up after and may be walked off leash on the walking trails (please be mindful of other campers, farm animals and wildlife), they may also swim in the dam but must be contained or kept on leash in the campsite areas.

The dam is very deep and could have snags washed down in floods, so we suggest children wear life jackets, and MUST be supervised by adults at all times around the water. 

Numbers are limited to ensure you have plenty of space and privacy!

No charge for children under 5 years no need to book

Campers must take all waste with them. 

Very good cellphone reception

So quiet, bird life is sensational beautiful open camp spots, dog friendly and we have 3 large dogs and we were still so welcomed. Beautifully maintained. You can hear the fish jumping in the dam at night! Perfect to relax and unwind with your hounds & great waking tracks.

Lovely peaceful spot - loved waking up to the bird song and the view over the lake/wetlands.
Miranda and Brendon were very welcoming and so flexible with our booking as we had to postpone a couple of times due to the weather event.

Overall the stay was nice and peaceful, however there was limited fireplaces we arrived early and was still unable to have a site with a fireplace, a little disappointed as what's camping without a fire. Amenities were great and the owners were friendly.

Lovely friendly hosts. Toilets spotless. Pretty spot around the dam and pleasant walks.

My only slight problem was finding level ground for the tent but not too bad.
