This has an excellent view. We visited in the afternoon. Maybe morning will have better lighting for those who are seek to take pictures.

Hello, Thank you for your inquiry. There is no camping allowed at the Beardmore Dam itself, but you are free to camp with a dog at a place on the way to the Beardmore Dam. The directions are: travel approx 14km north of St George along Carnarvon Hwy and turn left at the Beardmore Dam sign (or Thungaby road). Approx 300km from the turn off there will be a cattle grid. Just before the grid turn left and you can camp along by the river. Pets are welcome. There are no toilets or showers there.
Please let us know if there are any other questions you may have.
Enjoy your travels.
