The Dam is located about three to four hours north west of Sydney depending on the traffic, so it is far enough out to not be hugely popular, however some weekends can see the park get pretty busy.
Camp fires are permitted and there is a large stock of firewood available for sale from the kiosk located within the park. This is a great alternative to bringing your own wood, which can often be an annoying aspect of camping. There is mainly clear farm land around the park, so collecting firewood outside the park is not really an option and there is no collecting wood inside the park.
WHAT TO DO
There are plenty of things to do here at the park, but many of them will need you to bring stuff. You can go fishing on the side of the lake, so bring a fishing rod and some bait. Or if you want to get a bit more serious, bring your boat and get out in the deeper sections to hook up the big fish.
Water based sports like canoeing, water skiing and sailing are all popular, but once again you will need to BYO. If you bring a bicycle, there is plenty of roads and open space to ride around and get some exercise or just take in the sights on a more leisurely pedal. But beware, if you ride out the entry road of the park, it is a pretty tough ride back up to the main section of the park.
