Or there is Logue Brook where we stayed. The campground has recently been redeveloped replacing camping on the banks of the dam, all sites are non-powered and are situated in the forest with some over looking the dam. Sites 2-3, 5-10 and 12 all have views over the dam and can be requested at the time of booking.

There are sheltered BBQ areas with seating and non-flushing toilets which are clean and checked daily. The campsite itself does not have drinking water so be sure to take plenty for the weekend! It costs $10 per night for adults and $2.50 for children over the age of 6 making it an affordable family weekend away exploring the countryside. We had the best weekend!
