Clem Walton Park Road, Cloncurry, Queensland


Primitive bush camping at Corella Dam. There are no facilities. Campers will need to be self sufficient. Dispose of all rubbish appropriately and leave no trace. Entry via unsealed road. Pets are permitted. Keep pets under control and pick up after them. Located about half way between Mount Isa and Cloncurry, Lake Corella was created in 1959 by the construction of the Clem Walton Dam to provide town water for Mary Kathleen Uranium Mine.

POLICE have CLOSED both Corella dam and Clem Wharton park indefinately until virus over .We were all given 24 hours to leave. They were so nice but very regretful of their duty especially as there was very few of us who were very well isolated and complying with that Gov request of isolation.Well done Cloncurry police .Now regular patrols !

I love this camping area, when is User 2155634 going to learn to spell before criticising such a wonderful Free Camp. Just have to be self contained and enough fresh water, plus take your own rubbish out. If those services were supplied, imagine how many people would be there.

It's not worth 20 per night no toilets no dump point 60ks from a shop can't see what so good it's a dam with a few red claw that you have to have a boat to catch no drinking water for 60 ks no dump point your kidding much better places for 20 bucks and it will be staring in May I've been told I'm giving it a miss just another camp gone



Top stop, plenty of spots to camp and beautiful views of the dam. Lots of bird Life around, didn't get to see any Crocks but.



One of the best free camps we have stayed at. Beautiful views, right on the water. Saw some fresh water Crocs, plenty of kangaroos and birds.

Mick & Joan 25/8/19 Wonderful camp had a swim and a freshie was eyeing me off from a few metres away. He was less curious about me than other campers watching.

Spent this last week here (22/29.10.19) here. Fantastic. Just be aware that there are a few freshwater crocs in the water.

Awesome free camp. Massive open grassy space with multiple different separate areas to camp. Must be self sufficient so make sure you bring lots of water! We set up the van first then headed to Mary Kathleen up the road to see the old mine. Definitely worth the trip, it was incredible. About 8 other vans there too so it was good to feel safe



Thank you for this beautiful park. Not many here and very peaceful. Haven't seen any freshwater crocodiles. Shame some campers have no idea what self contained means.
