    Default Klerksdorp dam camping

    Does anybody have info about the current affairs at the Klerksdorp dam resort?

    I need to stay over for one night only. Arrive very late and move on early the next morning again. So I'm really not worried about facalities etc, I just want a place where I can put the caravan stands down for the evening.

    What is important however, is that it is safe. (And not a bank breaker, considering my POA.)

    Jaco for what you want to do it should work fine. You can even try next door at Pickles and peppers if you don't come right there

    Can't say that I've ever heard anything negative about them. As Banshee mentioned, Pickles is immediately next door to them, while Kemonate is just across the road.

    Rather steer clear of Pickles and Peppers

    An update on the Klerksdorp overnight situation please?

    I need to do a stop and go in Klerksdorp again on the evening of the 26/12 this year. We will arrive after dark and just sleep in the caravan and continue the next morning, so all we really require is just a save environment to park the caravan for the night.

    Klerksdorp dam worked previously, but last year we arrived there just before dark and the lady at the gate advised me to not enter. I did go through the resort, just to continue on my way to our destination rather (arriving there after 23:00) as there was no way I was staying over at that resort on that day. Now I realize you will never know what the day visitors will look like on a specific day, but I recon 26/12 might just look bad again this year so I need to look elsewhere to be safe.

    Even Orkney or somewhere else in the surroundings will work.

    I'm not much help I'm afraid, haven't been there for years. But I do imagine on 26 December it could be packed.

    Once again, all I could say has been said in my earlier reply (post 5).

    Visarend caravan park in Orkney seems like an option as well, anybody with experience of the place?

    Wawiel Park is an excellent place, not sure what their policy is regarding overnight camping though.

    I have no knowledge of Visarend Caravan Park.
