“We camped here for a night early September, slightly windy, but had lovely 2 days at the dam, the weather was quite pleasant. Summer months seem to be the windy months here.” - Janine Reyneke, 2011/09/10

“We camped here December 2010. There is ample open space for pitching a tent.You can pitch close to the water, or a bit further up under trees. Ablution facility is not wonderful, is ok for a weekends stay. We just had a very windy weekend at the dam, but word is the wind is not usually that bad.” - Janine Reyneke, 2010/12/12
