Rocklands is a great tourist destination for activities such as water skiing, fishing, canoeing or just bush camping. The reservoir has a surface area of 6,750 square km when full with eight camping locations around the reservoir, many kilometres apart by gravel road. In typical bush camping style, you need to bring everything - toilet, water and power. Supplies can be obtained at the nearby township of Balmoral which has a Pub, Milk Bar and Newsagent, Take Away Food shop, Fuel and Caravan Park. There is a concrete boat ramp near the spillway. There are also ramps at some of the Camps but, depending on water level, these may not be long enough to reach the water. Glendinning is the largest camp and does have one very basic toilet block - no showers. As the camp sites are spread over many hectares of bush, you really need to be totally self sufficient. Some campsites are clumped together and it is not uncommon to find 10 or more caravans and tents clumped together where families or groups of friends have their annual pilgrimage. Brody's and Mountain Dam Camps also have basic toilets. Brody's is again a very spread out camp and it is not hard to find a place where you can't see your neighbours while Mountain Dam is much more compact. The Caravan Park at the Rocklands Spillway has been closed for a number of years but there has been some talk of it re-opening. Check beforehand if you are looking for the 'mod-cons'. There are many, many bush campsites if you drive past the boat ramp and onto the gravel track. Grab a free map at the local shops to find the other Camps.

I used to camp here as a kid on fishing trips with my family. Back than it was so full that water used to released over the reservoir wall creating a waterfall that was magnificent. Sadly the reservoir is now at under 20% capacity. You can still catch an abundance of fish (with Redfin being the main species). They are numerous boat ramps and plenty of free camping spots.
