Top spot by waters edge if you're lucky

For anyone, especially the fishing person it is a fantastic place to stay plenty of room and toilets. The issue we had was we have dogs so the spear grass was a real issue and also you can't get to the water for a walk unless you walk through 500 metres of spear grass because every one has camped on the very edge of the dam.
