Keepit Dam was built across the Namoi River and lies between Tamworth and Gunnedah in NSW.  Keepit Dam created Lake Keepit which is a beautiful spot, popular for boating, fishing, camping and caravanning. The Lake Keepit State Park is established along the foreshore of the lake with safari tents, powered and un-powered caravan and camping sites and a number of cabins.

There are tennis courts, children’s water park, playground, boat wash area, fish cleaning bay, kiosk, BMX track, skate bowl – lots to do for children (not to mention all the boating activities on the lake itself). During our visit we noticed lovely grassed areas and plenty of shade providing relaxing picnic spots along the water's edge. Amenities for the Park are housed in stone buildings which are nice and clean, and there are public amenities near the Kiosk.

This is a very nice spot and the RvTrips team look forward to staying for a few days on our next trip.  

To access Lake Keepit turn onto Rushers Creek Road from the Oxley Highway and then onto Keepit Dam Road - well sign posted. This area sits under the Land and Property Management Authority State Parks – NSW.
