No Water Worries at Copeton Dam; Fishing & Dam Activities More Popular than Ever!

May 17, 2019 Glamping No Comments Email Email

Reflections Holiday Parks Copeton Waters is the place to be this winter, with lower dam levels than usual not
deterring anyone from enjoying the dam and popular holiday park.

Park Manager Paul Irwin said the current water level of 10.6% has not deterred people from the park and enjoying the
dam. Recent fishing competitions and a period of fine winter days have seen an influx of people into the park.

“Water levels of 10.6% at Copeton Dam still mean a whopping 144.584 Megalitres which is equivalent to 57,833
Olympic-sized swimming pools,” Paul said. “That’s more than enough water to ‘play in’ and enjoy all of the usual
recreational activities at the dam.”

“The water quality is also better than ever with WaterNSW downgrading Copeton Dam’s Blue-Green Algae Red Alert
to a low Amber. This should give families and dam users peace of mind.”

“There’s so much on offer at our park, aside from the excellent fishing and glorious winter camping, with our Golf
Course, Jumping Pillow and Water Park perfect for kids of all ages.”

“And don’t forget the amazingly clear night sky that these winter nights gift us. Our park at Copeton is famous with
campers who flock here to enjoy the peace and serenity around a campfire with the night sky shining in all its glory.
Local star gazers love our park!”

Paul says he is looking forward to a busy few months ahead with weekend cabins booking out fast. “Copeton is a well-
known hot spot for fishing and now is the perfect time for Top Water fishing with metre-long cod being caught using
surface lures,” Paul said.

“I caught a nice 88cm cod a few days ago at 3:00am which was pretty cool – I released it after puckering up and giving it a kiss. I think my lips froze.”

“My six-year old daughter also caught her first-ever cod last week and she is still talking about it. You can’t beat that
for a memorable childhood experience. Even my Aunty Anna Armour got in on the act with a whopping 99.3cm

“The annual ‘Keepit Kool’ Sailing Regatta is also being held at Copeton this year over the June long weekend. This is the 51st year of this event and will bring competitors from as far away as Lake Macquarie to attend.”

“I love this place and so do our guests. It is the perfect gateway to the wider area, with an array of national parks to
explore and my home town of Inverell just a short drive away.”

Cosy up in a cabin or campsite and enjoy one of the greatest regional destinations NSW has to offer. To book an
