Bells Bay Camping Ground – Toonumbar Dam

Please note that Bell’s Bay Camping Ground at Toonumbar Dam closed on Sunday 28th January at the end of the school holidays. It will remain closed for the next couple of weekends to allow for maintenance after heavy usage during the holiday period. The dam level has also dropped enough that boats can no longer be launched from the boat ramp at Bell’s Bay, though the boat ramp near the wall is still useable. A very high fire danger also exists in the area. Please check this site or the Facebook page for the Kyogle Fishing Club for details of when the campground will re-open.
