    Default Western Cape Carp Camping

    Hi there,

    Does anyone perhaps know if there are any dams that the public can camp at where you can fish for carp. I am looking for a dam (or river) where you can camp next to your rods. Most of the places I have been at in the Cape have separate fishing and camping areas where you have to walk a little way to go fishing.

    I am looking for something similar to the Vaal Dam venues like Island Shore and Last Farms. Set up your rods, pitch your tent and off you go into the night.

    Thanks!

    That could work yes! Phoned Kwaggaskloof. They said that there might be one or two sites that are close enough to the water.

    Doubt it and don't think I would want to try I know they revamped the place a lot since I was there last but still not sure I would want to sleep there.

    I know that you could arrange a boat trip at Rondevlei and sleep on the island there. Suppose you could fish from there too. They have big Carp there.
