Lake Burrendong offers year-round attractions for fishing enthusiasts, nature lovers, bushwalkers, campers and picnickers. Located only an hour between Dubbo and Orange, on the western shore of Burrendong Dam, the park is a fantastic base to stay awhile and explore the local area.
Rod and reel enthusiasts will enjoy the fishing, with redfin the top catch, while catfish and Murray cod and Golden perch (yellow belly) can also be caught. Try your luck catching some Yabbies off the banks of the dam. Through the spring and summer seasons, the Park is a fantastic spot for boating, sailing, swimming and water skiing.
There is an arboretum with native plants and animals, right next to the Park and a mass of subtropical vegetation, native animals and local bird life to spot within the Park. Lake Burrendong offers a range of accommodation options from cabins to powered and unpowered sites. There are also function facilities available. The Park is pet friendly and you can bring your furry companion with you when you camp or caravan. There is a kiosk on site where you can get hot food for an easy picnic or a break from camp cooking.
