Burrendong Caravan Park - Lake Burrendong State Park

Lake Burrendong State Park offers year-round attractions for fishing enthusiasts, nature lovers, bushwalkers, campers and picnickers. With an arboretum with native plants and animals, and a mass of subtropical vegetation and local bird life, Lake Burrendong has something for everyone. Some of the best scenery in NSW can be viewed from the many walks through Burrendong and Mookerawa.

Add a little excitement by looking for gold in the creek beds around the parks. Rod and reel enthusiasts will enjoy the fishing, with redfin the top catch, while catfish and Murray cod and Golden perch (yellow belly) can also be caught.
