Perfect conditions as Copeton Dam sits around 100% capacity

December 16, 2021

Reflections Holiday Park at Copeton Waters has enjoyed a fantastic reopening to visitors from far and wide since the reopening of NSW travel restrictions, with the dam reaching capacity over the last few weeks.

Copeton Dam reached 100% on November 24 after heavy rainfall reached the catchment

Reflections Copeton Waters Manager, Paul Irwin, said now was a great time to be visiting Copeton with dam levels high and the fishing at its absolute finest. “We are going gangbusters here at the moment,” Mr Irwin said.

“Greater Sydney has opened up and people are rebooking their long-awaited holidays with us again. We are seeing lots of families, boating enthusiasts and people who just love to fish. There’s still plenty of availability for powered sites and bush camping.”

Guest Services Officer, Paige Hobday, said a recent fishing competition saw almost one hundred fishing enthusiasts from casual family groups to the serious anglers, coming in from Armidale and Glen Innes. “It was great to see everyone’s excitement as they came back to support this great inland park,” Miss Hobday said.

Mr Irwin said there was nothing like waking up to the stillness of Copeton and enjoying the birdsong with a cuppa in hand. “Our Park is also full of kangaroos, emus and deer, which is a real delight for city siders who want to experience the Australian landscape in a holiday setting. The white deer are particularly cool!”

The Copeton Kiosk is open from 9:00am to 5:00pm, seven days a week with hot food, refreshments, and basic grocery items available. Bait, lures, and lines as well as a range of fishing clothing and camping items are also available.

Mr Irwin said outdoor sports were the go at Copeton, with activities like hiking, fishing, fossicking for gold and mountain biking popular with guests and sporting groups. The BMX track was humming with activity when the Inverell Mountain Bike Club held their 6-hour Copeton Ride there on Sunday 21 November.

Reflections Holiday Parks CEO ,Nick Baker, said Copeton was known far and wide for its fishing and he couldn’t wait to get out to the park to cast a line in. “What’s great about Copeton is that there is so much for you to do out there in the fresh air with your friends and family,” Mr Baker said.

“We know people are eager to get out and have some fun and we think a discounted holiday at Copeton enjoying one of the best locations this State has to offer, is the perfect way to boost people’s spirits and boost local economies.”
