Great for a picnic, swimming, fishing and canoeing. Not far from Dubbo. No camping allowed. Reserve is locked after dark.
See Fishing trail also.
As you drive into the reserve you will pass the Pioneer Cemetery on your left which is worth a look.
Sealed road all the way except for the last kilometer which can be tricky after serious rain. There are no toilets or rubbish bins. Foot access to the river is good and the beach is shallow and with gravel. There is no concrete boat ramp. Four wheel drives can get down to the river but the tracks are quite steep and eroded in places.
If coming from the Geurie direction along the Old Dubbo Road turn left at Lazy River Estate and follow that road for a few hundred metres until you see the green sign into the reserve on yoru right. From Dubbo follow the Old Dubbo Road signs and turn right at Lazy River Estate – then proceed a few hundred metres to the reserve entrance on the right. See map River Parks map – coming soon.
The area is managed by Dubbo City Council.
