Carcoar Dam

Free Camping - New South Wales

Favourite

This large free camping area is located on the banks of the Carcoar Dam.  It is quite a majestic place.  The camping area is lush grass with gorgeous shade from the tall trees.  Overlooking the water, it can be quite magical here.  It has a concrete boat ramp so it's a great place to bring your boat if you want to do some fishing, water skiing.  

Facilities here include toilets, cold showers, water, picnic tables, free BBQ's and dogs are allowed here.

Picturesque location, with level spots on side of hill at southern end, although toilet block is unusable at the time of our visit.

This is a popular camp site and really nice place for a break. Can be very cold at times when the wind blows across the dam.

Excellent beautiful picturesque spot. Very clean well maintained amenity block. Rubbish bins. No power or water, so plan ahead for those. Lots of room, although most areas have a gentle slope, nothing a set of blocks won’t correct.

A very nice popular place for a night or two, handy off the highway. No grass and dam level very low at the moment though but there are spectacular Autumn colours in the trees. Need your levellers on most spots. Wind farm look out at the same place. Don't forget to look west for the sunset which was spectacular tonight. A very nice place.

Saturday night and plenty of vans here, but still room. Many sloping blocks. We camped on lovely level spot near old (unused) red brick amenities block. Views across dam are delightful. Plenty of water in dam now.

Great spot overlooking the dam. Wind turbines across dam warn of how windy it can get here. Go into historic Carcoar for lovely cafe.
