If you are looking for somewhere to go that has great fishing ,nice big redclaw and water sports for those who like to ski then go to Bjelke Petersen Dam. We have been regulars here for several years. We come and stay for a couple of months sometimes twice a year and LOVE IT. The managers are very nice alway asking if they can do anything to help and always talk nicely to everyone. We have morning tea supplied by management every Tuesday except on school holidays. It is a wonderful opportunity to meet other people staying . We are seniors and find this park to be very well run. Like all parks there are rules to abide by and if they are adhered to the managers leave the campers alone. It is also a dog friendly park and like their owners they have rules to abide.by. I can only say come and meet Peter and Shona and their children be welcomed by them and enjoy your stay. We do every time and will be returning to meet new people and having lots of laughs with old and new friends. Try it you will like it.!
Agree with previous post , both male and female managers need to be removed. I witnessed constant harassment of park visitors , campers being told to shut down music at 915pm on New Year's Eve. The constant yelling at campers children eg calling a 5 year old a "Lunatic" for riding his bike on the roads in the park abusing a parent for letting their toddler push a toy truck along the road telling preteens to get to their tent before 915 pm as there was a curfew just the worst holiday experience of your lives the park maybe pet friendly but not people friendly. Another issue was on check in no one was warned about the duck lice problem in the dam leaving our camp to restless nights with kids itching festering spots all over their body's and I was told one child was taken into hospital. I understand nature is out of the control of management but warnings would have been nice. There also appeared to be a double standard when it came to the rules of the pool when one of your campers was rudely told by female manager she was not taking adequate supervision of the children in her care by standing outside the pool fence reading a book, the children she was caring for are all older children and very good swimmers. When we reported the consumption of alcohol in the pool area this was ignored one can only hope the drinkers where not supervising children. In closing how would I rate my experience , Dam beautiful , decent amenities, large camping sites, but would never consider staying there again until managers are replaced and will be telling as many as I can not to go there I also plead with readers of this blog to pass on this information to any prospective visitors. Our group will also be contacting the local council with our concerns
Nice area however the female office manager is probably the rudest person I have ever met. Previous visitors to the park had warned us about her but I was totally unprepared for her rudeness and foul language to park visitors. Will never return to this park while these managers are in residence.
Hello. Was thinking of heading that way around 8th july in camper van, was wondering if u allow open fires at campsites. Thank you.
