Clem Walton Park & Corella Dam - Corella Dam QLD
Clem Walton Park & Corella Dam is located at the end of Clem Walton Park Road at Corella Dam. Corella Dam is 1,761 km north west of Brisbane. The trip takes approximately 19 hours and 8 minutes, although slower if you are towing a heavy van or large rig. There is plenty of room here for RVs of all shape and sizes. Please respect the personal space of other campers who may be in the area when you arrive. When you arrived you will need to open the gate with the chain to enter. The place is very popular. Good for bird watching. There are plenty of crocodiles. The scenery is stunning. You will not want to leave.

Wow, a great camp area. Unfortunately, it may not be around for much longer if people don't start doing the right thing. When we were there, people were cutting down trees for firewood, grey water was left to run loose which goes into the dam and emptying toilet cassettes into the toilet is a big no no.
We stayed here in July 2016. The entrance to this Park and Corella Dam site is closed off with gates and a chain always. If the chain is not actually locked with a padlock, you are allowed to undo clip and pass into this site...closing gate again. It is padlocked when/if the dam spillway is likely to be overflowed due to rains etc. There are no facilities here and it is desirable to catch all grey water in a tank. There were about 150 vans scattered around this very large area right on the dam or parked back under the many shady trees. The area does have a boat launching ramp posted on way in, although small tinnies could be launched at a number of places. Some people choose to camp there for extended times as evidenced by tinnies anchored over several nights and private temporary pumping arrangements to supply water to individual groupings of vans. It is a very picturesque site and there does not seem to be a time limit set for camping. Many people drive back to Cloncurry for supplies etc or Mount Isa (although a bit further). There is no dump site there but there is one at Cloncurry and just East of this park at the Mary Kathleen camp site ( about 10 kms or so), there is a regular dump site. It is a truly beautiful camp site.
