We are back! From the most amazing magical weekend ever. So wished we had more time to stay at Theresa Dam Camping Grounds and explore more of Clermont. Maybe soon we will take our Motorhome there, and spend longer Relaxing.
First Camping Trip
I have been so very keen to try camping ~ me a non camping kinda girl! And I have to say I am hooked. It was the best weekend ever, and I am now planning our next trip. Maybe it was such a great weekend because of where we stayed
Theresa Dam Family Friendly Camping Grounds
Not sure what to expect when we arrived, but sure was super happy with what we found! After sitting in the car for three hours our boys were keen to stretch their legs and explore. Sure was amazed that the Camping Grounds was so well set up – 2 playgrounds, 2 shower/toilet blocks (from what we could see ~ think there was more!), 1 toilet (Composting Toilet) Block closer to where we set up, and then the access to the dam (via fishing, swimming)!
When We Arrived ~
Our boys were so keen to head off to the playgrond, while we went into the office!
The best feature of all ~ was the price. Only $10.00 per night for David and I ~ no price for the kids! It was also big enough to take Motorhomes, Caravans, Camper Trailers and Tents. There were so many people coming and going over three days were there. And everyone was so very friendly.
FREE Movie Night Saturday Night
On Saturday night everyone was treated to a free kids movie ~ Puss n Boots. It was such a great treat to sit down on Beach towels (yep forgot the Picnic Rug as well as many other important items!) and watch a movie altogether.

The next best feature was the lack of electricity. No power means no lights. No lights means early bed. We did have torches but we still made an effort to head to bed early. Which did mean early rise the next morning! But that was ok as our boys had their breakfast and then went back to their beds until 8.00 am this morning (gosh was that good!)
Would We Go Back Again?
We hope to take our Motorhome back with us….and stay a little while before heading down south. It will mean a detour stop but we loved our short break at Theresa Dam and would love to spend some more time there with all of us!
Seat Waiting at the Waters Edge ~
Looked so inviting.
Location :: Theresa Creek Dam is located 22 km south-west of Clermont in central Queensland.
Yep there were people swimming in the dam yesterday!
Water :: There is no drinking water as such, so you need to take your own. There was a small water tank which provided water, but it’s not to be used for filling up Caravans/Motorhomes!
Limited Drinking Water ~
Not for filling up!
Showers/Toilets :: There is showers, which while were clean where not the best shower blocks around. However I do like how everyone had quick showers so there was still hot water available.
Cafe :: Located at the Dam is a cafe ~ where you can buy meals, snacks, drinks, and many other related items (sunscreen, t-shirts etc!)
Dam Fine Coffee
Family Friendly :: We were made to feel so welcome when we arrived, and we noticed children everywhere having fun!
Fires :: there were numerous fire pits around Theresa Dam Camping Grounds ~ all you needed was fire wood!
Bonus Features :: Birds! The birds arrived for breakfast on both mornings, and we enjoyed feeding them.
Our Breakfast Visitors~
Arrived each morning for yummy breaky!
BBQ Facilities :: There are few BBQ’s plus Tables/Chairs that are under cover.
Our Family Feedback :: we loved our three Days Would we go back again? Sure would.
