As well as being unbeatable for fishing, bushwalking and a good dose of outdoor relaxation, Three Mile Dam campground offers Aussie heritage in spades.
Established during the Kiandra gold-mining era, the dam provided water for sluicing operations via race lines to Kiandra (New Chum Hill). Its eastern side was part of the Snowy Mountains Hydro Electric Scheme.
There are no marked sites but youll find plenty of room for your tent, camper trailer or caravan amidst the grassy sub-alpine woodland. Bask in the shelter of the surrounding snow gums, and make use of the handy facilities including barbecues and picnic tables.
Its a good spot to visit in warmer weather as a stopover on the Khancoban to Kiandra scenic drive or Snowy Mountains Highway. A carpet of snow daisies and billy buttons enhance a springtime camping trip.
