I'm happy with anywhere - even though I don't have a four legged friend, I'm fine to go pet friendly.
It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt - then it's bloody hilarious!

Sorry..yes that one is. It has been soooo long since there was any water in it that I totally forgot about it even being a dam.

Did I read a thread recently about general poor behaviour at dam camping areas, or did I dream that? Can't seem to find it now that I'm looking.

Think the post you might be thinking of Amanda was the Yobbos one where there was some mention of dams as well.

Yes i think some one did go to a dam and had some trouble, Lowood is still fairly low water level so i`m guessing a lot of people are`nt going to head out there especially with boats.

If you want information on dam storage levels in SEQ have a look here.

winter camping is the best time to go camping - can't believe people cant handle it - admittedly, we wouldn't go somewhere without a fire.
