Information

An interesting campsite on the edge of the Karalee Dam. The site includes a caravan dump point, toilet facilities and large camping grounds with fire pits for cooking.

Please be advised of Restricted & Prohibited Burning Periods in the region. These will be well signposted but typically, restrictions apply during WA September/October school holidays and Easter holidays with a Prohibited Burning Period throughout summer (Nov - end Feb).

Nearby: The Old York Road and telegraph line lie south of the dam. There also remains remnants of the old forge operated during the construction of the railway dams for the many horses. The deep water well and remains of the rock wall, smaller dam and one of Hunts Soaks are located near the old camping grounds used by weary travellers in the 1890s. Hunts Soak was constructed in the 1860s by convicts and pensioner soldiers. A walk over the rock enables views out to Mt Clara and Hermit Rock.
