Glen Mervyn Dam is a large campground with camping permitted along most banks of the dam.

Skiing is currently prohibited in the dam due to low water levels, however fishing and swimming are still permitted. Most banks of the dam require a 4WD to access however there are some areas accessible by 2WD.

The dam is very quiet and peaceful when no boats are operating, with plenty of ducks and swans swimming along the water's edge.

Be aware that toilet facilities are very limited, there is only one toilet on the west bank of the dam which can be a long distance from most sites.

Camp and cooking fires are not permitted at Glen Mervyn, so make sure you pack a gas camp stove.
