Large grassy campground, suitable for caravans on the shore of Blowering Dam
This is avery large campground and is very popular. There are no designated sites, just lots of open grassy areas and a few scattered trees for shade. Much of the area is gently sloping, particularly close to the shoreline, however some level sites can be had.
There are pit toilets, picnic tables, wood barbecues (bring your own wood) and easy access to the dam for launching small craft.
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.
