Logue Brook Dam (or Lake Brockman as it was formerly known) is a fresh water lake built back in the sixties. Today it is a great spot thriving with water sports. Logue Brook Dam is the destination for many weekend outdoor enthusiasts and a popular spot for camping.
Unlike Drakesbrook weir, Logue Brook Dam allows just about anytype of water activity. Water skiing, jet skiing, windsurfing, sailing, canoeing, swimming and fishing (licence applies). It is the perfect spot to get out the boat and while away the hours atop the sparkling waters. Or can also be a great place to pick up a new activity. There are sections where boats are not allowed and this is where you’ll find budding canoers and paddle boarders enjoying the lake. There are two main camping areas. The Lake Brockman Tourist Park is perfect for those with caravans or looking for somewhere with power, water and facilities. The other option is to rough it around the lake.
Fees apply and the ranger comes usually before 5pm to collect. You can book in a few more days and pay all up, or if you just want to try it out for a night – pay for one. We’ve been a few times now with a roof top tent and an awning tent which allows us more freedom around the lake. If you are towing a caravan or a pop top there is fairly flat ground about a quarter away round from the entrance that most people seem to pull into. There is plenty of space and drop toilets nearby.
There is no power, water or bins around Logue Brook – so be sure to come prepared for all. As mentioned, Logue Brook is a popular spot for visitors, locals and in particular – four wheeled drive enthusiasts. One of our breaks was unfortunately cut short as a group decided to test the endurance of their vehicles close to ours into the early hours of the morn. It wasn’t the most pleasant experience, however we were in a rather isolated spot and apparently close to a well known mud trail. On a return visit we chose a different location and had no problems at all. Unfortunately theses things can happen anywhere, especially when camping. But don’t let that discourage you. Logue Brook Dam is too irresistible to stay away. The water is crystal clear and the temperature mild.
There are many photo opportunities and it is a delightful area for hiking, mountain bike riding and bird spotting.
The sunsets are stunning…
and it’s great to wake up in the morning to views like these.
And fur babies are allowed as long as they are on a leash.Even just a day trip with a packed lunch is enough to breathe in all that lovely fresh air and recharge the batteries.
