If you want a place to go and just take in the peace and quiet, then this might be up your alley. Clean (away from the road though) green and totally serene. Do yourself a favour.

A lovely, peaceful place suitable for bbqs, picnics, walking and kayaking. Still, non tidal water makes for easy paddling.

Our 2nd visit for a day walk. Like last time enjoyed ourselves - the scenery and the peace & quiet. The walk along the side of the dam is relatively easy & at different points you'll have a view of a glass house mountain across...More

Great for easy walking trails and easy access fishing platforms. Small kids park by the car park. Not many people about so great for peaceful bushwalking in beautiful surroundings by the dam. Dog friendly with dogs on leads.

Answer is NO. Dogs to remain on leash, or leave dogs at home. I'd like to see this rare opportunity to allow dogs in a place like this, to not be ruined by others that do not follow the signs at entrance.
