28th April 2007 – Wuruma Dam - 48k North West Eidsvold, Queensland

A victim of the drought, Wuruma Dam currently holds less than 1% of its capacity. The camping areas are well shaded with some reasonably level and tables and shelters sheds are provided. Wood is available for camp fires for the odd BBQ. Reached by turning West about 19k north of Eidsvold towards Abercorn and then a further 20k to the dam. The road is sealed all the way to the dam and a short section of gravel road takes you to the free camping areas. There is a short walk from the camping area to the toilet block with septic toilets. Outside the Men’s toilet is a cold shower (no rose) which is very refreshing. (Watch for traffic). It was during drought conditions while we were here and the 200m boat ramp only went to a dry creek bed. We must return here after rain as this would be an ideal spot to spend a week or two. We still enjoyed our stay here and recommend this spot. Update: It rained last night and we received approximately 10mm. Will return within a couple of weeks to see the difference.
