Lake St Clair Plan of Management
The Lake St Clair Park is a popular camping, fishing, water sports, picnicking and day-visit attraction located a scenic 30-minute drive north of Singleton in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales. The recreation area sits on the north-eastern foreshore of Lake St Clair, the impoundment created by Glennies Creek Dam, on land owned by Water NSW. The 130 hectare area has been leased to, and managed by, Singleton Council since 1986.
Council has developed, and continues to manage part of the area, as a primitive camping ground and pay-to-use recreation area. The recreation area offers nearly 20 hectares of attractive managed camping grounds and day use space (as mown grass, beneath scattered or grouped trees, and foreshores), several powered campsites, numerous wood-fired barbecues, picnic furniture/settings, two toilet/shower blocks; a camp kitchen with two barbeques, a kiosk (operated part-time), a concrete boat ramp (useable at almost all water levels) and associated boat- trailer parking areas. The lake foreshore wraps around three sides of the recreation area, which is sited on a point of land extending into the waterbody and is serviced by a sealed access and loop road.
