We spent a lovely 3 nights here camping water front in our 22.6ft off road caravan. Still close enough to town and great fishing.

What a lovely place to camp. We were blessed with perfect weather, the dam looked gorgeous and the open plan camping suited us down to the ground. The kids loved LuLu the Border Collie visiting us and also patting the horses. The on-site barn looks absolutely amazing and has been restored perfectly, well done Callum & Natalie!
