Logue Brook Dam (also known as Lake Brockman) is located in the hills just north east of Harvey.
Access is from the South West Highway and Logue Brook Dam Road.
The dam is named after Joseph Logue, an early European settler who arrived in the area in 1849. He seems to have been the only
settler in this particular area for some 30 years.
There is a caravan park by the lake but this page is focused on the new campsite developed by CALM / DPaW.
The new area is actually managed by the caravan park and there are boom gates so you have to book in. You can look at the sites before
booking but you need to check with the office if the site you want is available before moving into it, as these sites can be booked in advance.
Dogs are allowed, there is washing water, camp kitchens, seats, tables, pit toilets and BBQs. There is also a black water dump point
but you may need to get a key from the office BEFORE dumping waste.
During the week the lake is nice and peaceful but on weekends expect water ski boats and a lot more people.
If you want a site here at peak times then book ahead. (Ph. 08 9733 5402).
There are not many sites with lake views and they will be the first to go.
Different sections of the campsite are designated for different types of campers. Zamia camp is set aside for groups, Karrak is for
tents only, Millars has the largest sites and is best suited for caravans and motorhomes and Bunuru and Quokka are good general areas
for smaller vehicles and camper trailers etc.
There is access to the lake from either the boat ramp near the office or for walkers down steps from near site 12 in the tenting
The campsite is quite well designed but motorhomes and campervans will need levelling blocks on most sites.
At the time of writing this, fees are $10 per head per night or $6.60 concession. The older campsites around the lake are ALL being phased out so camping near
your boat by the waters edge will soon be a thing of the past. It is hard to see what the boaties will do now as there are not many sites
where you will have the room to camp and park a boat.
No fires are permitted from December 15 to March 14 each year and on days of total fire ban. Generators can be run from 8am to 9pm
and there is a total noise ban after 10pm. Ignore it at your peril as signs everywhere say you will be immediately removed from the
campsite if you do.
The new trend in camping is to stop individual sites and herd everyone together in manageable groups. Sadly this has come about
because there are still idiots who come out to places like this and leave a pile of garbage behind them for others to clean up.
Logue Brook is truly beautiful and peaceful in the off-season but personally I wouldn't come near the place in peak times.
One thing we would like to see implemented in these bush style campsites are some specific sites dedicated to people with
disabilities, especially those with mobility problems. Usually campsites are quite a distance from features like swimming areas and
little attention is given to providing access to vehicles designed to transport people with disabilities. A few special sites need to be developed
in EVERY camping area so that those with mobility problems have better access and can enjoy the outdoors along with everyone else.
A major item of concern at the new campsite was the lack of disinfectant buckets and toilet brushes in the toilets. These need to be
placed in every toilet to ensure that the facilities remain as clean as possible.
