Captain Logan Campground, Wivenhoe Dam, Queensland

I didn't pick the greatest weather to go camping at this lovely campground.  But then again, there is never a bad time to go camping is there.  Captain Logan is a very pretty campground. Shady, well laid out. Great parking, especially if you have a trailer or jet ski. Fabulous for swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding or just not doing anything.  It is a very peaceful campground.

Clean toilets, hot showers within easy walk of all campsites.  Each site has a wood fired BBQ area and is handy to a water tap. Sites are big but very sloped.  Each site has a levelled sandy loam camping pad. It is only just big enough for one large tent and gazebo type set up or maybe three smaller tents and gazebo. If you were going with a big group you would definitely need a couple of sites. They are well spread out though, so your neighbours should not bother you at all.

There is a designated camper van/caravan section so if camping with a group of mixed tents, campers and van's you may need to head to this area.  All camps are on the water so you will not miss the beautiful sunrises and sunsets.  Cars must remain behind the bollards on driveway in the tent camping area.  This makes it a bit of an effort to cart your gear back and forth. Means you can't utilise your car awning for shade so ensure you take an alternative.

Perfect for the kids as there is a notable lack of jet-ski's and powerboats due to the boat restrictions.   Heaps of friendly roo's, birds and the odd penny turtle to discover.    Kids can explore all day long.

For the average family this is an ideal spot and only one hour from Brisbane.  Definitely worth the visit.

$25 for 2 adults so not cheap but most certainly not over-priced either.
