Open and grassy campground on the banks of Blowering Dam
This is a great little spot to base for water skiing, kayaking, fishing etc. There is a good quality boat ramp, toilets and plenty of space for tents, vans or camper trailers.
Whilst swimming is permitted, only when the dam is full, the shaded campsite is somewhat near the water's edge. But the dam is rarely full.
You have a choice:
1) Camp, unshaded, near the waters edge, and have a long walk to the toilet, or
2) Camp in shade and have a long walk to the water.
