When it comes to freshwater fishing in NSW and a memorable camping experience to go with it, it’s hard to go past Reflections Holiday Parks Copeton Waters.
There’s more fun here than you can poke a fishing rod at. From boating, kayaking and bushwalking, to a jumping pillow and water park for the kids, there’s endless outdoor adventures just ready for the taking.
A 30-minute drive from Inverell and an easy journey from Armidale, Glen Innes and Warialda, Copeton Waters Holiday Park – set on 900 hectares of bushland and nestling the mighty Copeton Dam – is the ultimate New England country escape.
As a renowned fishing mecca, you’re sure to meet all kinds of fisherfolk who descend upon Copeton to catch a Murray Cod, the quintessential trophy fish. Teach the kids to water-ski, get active with some mountain-biking and spend your evening having yarns around the campfire.
Stay a day, a week or a month. Pick a perfect spot, then pull up the caravan or put up the tent in this stunning outdoor playground, dog-friendly for caravan and camping sites. Make yourself at home in one of our cabins, or perhaps the bunkhouse accommodation if you’re in a large group, then check out the park’s activities and facilities.
Now all that’s left to do is make cherished holiday memories. Whether it’s waiting for the fish to bite, toasting marshmallows around the campfire or watching the kids squeal with delight in the water park, Copeton is the perfect place to be nurtured by nature.
