Bowling Alley Point Recreation Reserve on Chaffey Dam is a great spot for camping, swimming, boating, sailing, fishing and photography.
Take a ticket at the gate, complete the details and deposit envelope & money into Honesty Bin. Display ticket on dash at all times.

The countryside around Nundle is picturesque with winding roads and green hills. This is rich grazing country and the dam is a wonderful resource for all kinds of water sport.

This is a nice spot for a few days stay. Hot showers $1pp and flushing toilets. Fresh drinking water is also available but wise to fill up before you arrive. Fires allowed out of fire ban periods.

There is good fishing in the dam although carp are flourishing. Water Sports on one side of Dam and recreational fishing, swimming, sailing etc on the other side. Some scattered tables and BBQ's. Best to be fairly self contained.

Cold in winter and warm to hot in summer. A good General Store at Woolomin for basic supplies (7km away) or Nundle Town is 15km away.

Very busy (perhaps 1000 rigs and boats) over Easter...and presumably christmas and NY, too. Septic tank overflowed. Rumour has it that the city council is seeking to take over the site so be prepared for changed camping conditions
Chaffey Dam now has a dump point up by the toilet block.
