Three Mile Dam – Camping Areas – Mount Selwyn


[/text_output][columnize id=”” class=”” style=””]

This gorgeous camp area is split into two sections running along the foreshore on either side of the lake at Three Mile Dam located on the top of Mount Selwyn in the Kosciusko National Park, just up from the Old Kiandra Goldfields.
Both camping areas are serviced by an all weather access gravel road and suitable sites for the largest motorhomes and caravans can be found with relative ease.
Smaller vehicles and tent campers will find sheltered camp sites in the bush around the lake in both camping areas and most sites are relatively easy to access with a 2WD.
Although some camp spots have more formal steel shrouded wood barbecue facilities, most have informal river stone fire pits.

A single pit toilet is located at each camp area, however they are both un-serviced so you will need to bring you own loo paper.

Drinking quality water is available from the lake but needs to be boiled before consumption.

Good 3G phone reception and internet access is also available at both these camping areas if you are on the Telstra Network.

Bush walking, fishing, Horse riding and obviously Skiing (during winter) are major attractions of the area.

A short historical walk through a remnant gold mining area on Mount Selwyn is a prominant tourist attraction and serious hikers can engage the multistage walks through the Kosciousko National Park from this vantage point.

Some good size fish can be seen cruising the shallows towards dusk and in deeper water during the day and a well presented dry near the drowned tussocks can result in massive bow waves and savage strikes from large fish in the early evening.

During the summer months night time fishing with Muddler Minnow patterns and other mudeye imitations can result in the odd good fish.

The beauty and serenity of the area adds to the fishing experience and campers can enjoy the quiet that the bush in this area affords.

Wild Brumbies are also regular visitors to the campground and are often seen wandering through in the early morning or grazing on the succulent grasses on the lakes foreshore.

This is a truly magical place and has to be experienced to be truly appreciated.

I hope you enjoy your stay here. This is one of my favourite campsites in this part of the Kosciusko National Park.
