As of 16/01/14 the Dam has been totally closed for ALL activities as the toilets have failed and do not meet health and safety standards. This can be confirmed with the Armidale Council or the Info Centre. It is planned to upgrade and re-open but as this was an emergency closure no details are available.
I have heard (!) that Armidale Council are relaxing restrictions at other locations, travellers should check with Tourist Info Centres.
Also, swimming is normally allowed and there is no mobile phone or wireless access

Free Campsites and Low Cost RV Camping grounds in New South Wales, Australia

We are always looking at ways to improve our site and are pleased to announce our Free and low Cost Campsite Maps area is now open.

I'm a great fan of cheap caravan holidays, and if you have a Dog, we have added a Pet Friendly field as well.
Our map of New South Wales is fully operational, plus you can comment on any of the entries you choose in our dedicated camping forum New South Wales section.
We have listed on our New South Wales Map:
Free RV Camping grounds, including Low Cost Stopovers, Rest Areas, Cheap Caravan Parks, Dump Points, Visitor Information Centre, Sight seeing and things to do along the way, all can now be found in one convenient map location.

Also included whenever possible, is an interactive map and of the location, water availability, toilets, fireplaces, shade and things to do once your there.

To make it easy for you to make up your mind if you would like to stay at one of our listed locations overnight, I have added photos from Google earth showing GPS coordinates to each campsite we have listed, and also included them in our maps. At most campsites you will be able to see if your caravan, motor home or tent will fit.

My thoughts are to create a single website to visit, that caters for all Australian locations in one place, each is packed Now you can make an informed choice as to which of cheap caravan holidays you would like to go on.
