Bell`s Bay

A very small secluded basic bush camping ground in magnificent forest, right on the shores of Toonumbar Dam.

As of the 21st September 2017 the Kyogle Fishing Club has taken over operations at the Bells Bay Campgrounds at Toonumbar Dam

Bells Bay Campgrounds will open from 6 AM Fridays to 7 PM Sundays School holidays and public holidays

This popular spot is for people who enjoy outdoor camping life with basic amenities (compost toilets), but has access to all the features at Toonumbar Dam. It is a dog friendly camping area. Concrete boat ramp and small jetty. Campsites are not numbered.

Some uneven and rocky ground at this campsite. Covered picnic tables are scattered throughout the campground. Small rainwater tanks at some tables, with non-potable water.

Bushwalking tracks from the campground are not signposted, but worth finding.

Bells bay camp ground is no longer pet friendly

Getting there

33 kilometres from Kyogle to the Dam through beautiful farming country. On the northern edge of town, the road to Nimbin turns east, and the road to the dam goes west (turn into Anzac Drive at BP Garage off Summerland Way). There is 22 kilometres of sealed road, then 7 km of dirt, impassable after heavy rain. The unsealed road into Bells Bay, 2.5 kilometres past the dam wall, is narrow and steep inplaces, so drive slowly to the conditions. Steep section of road may not be suitable for large vans in wet conditions.
