Camping

There are four camping areas within the Logue Brook Dam zone. Only one of these is open all year round, the other three are seasonal only, (open during peak periods as overflow). Currently none of the camp sites has designated bays. Logue Brook Dam has a number of picnic sites as well as camping and access for water-skiing, boating and fishing. Water-skiing is the prime reason for visiting Logue Brook Dam, however there are many forest tracks to walk and explore.

  • The forest comes alive in wildflower season.
  • Best time to visit: All year round.
  • Unlicensed off-road vehicles are not permitted on DEC-managed lands.
  • Camping fees apply.
A total fire ban is in force throughout the Wellington District from 15 December to 14 March, inclusive. The ban includes all open fires for the purpose of cooking or camping. Low rainfall and/or hot conditions may see fire bans extended indefinitely beyond this date.

The camping site is set among jarrah forest on the banks of the lake that is formed by the dam wall. The water in the lake is used for irrigating the local farm land at the base of the scarp. Trout and marron fishing is permitted within the dam in season - contact local Department of Fisheries for further information.
