Shoalhaven City Council advise that until further notice Danjera Dam camping area (also known as Yalwal campground) is closed.
During extended drought conditions, the management of the Shoalhaven’s water supply schemes is determined by Council’s Drought Management Plan (DMP). The DMP is being followed to ensure that our precious water resources are soundly managed.
Danjera Dam is one of the primary water sources for the Shoalhaven. Following successive releases from Danjera Dam to top up Shoalhaven’s water supply, Danjera Dam’s water level has dropped significantly creating potential safety hazards. For the safety of users, the adjoining campground will close on Monday 16th December 2019 until further notice.
The campground will only reopen when the water levels significantly increase. Under the prevailing drought conditions, this may not occur for some time.
