CAMPERS could return to Dumaresq Dam after a two-year hiatus under plans proposed by Armidale Regional Council.
But charges will be levied and campers will only be able to stay for a maximum of five nights, the master plan says.
Campers will also be charged to help pay for a new amenities block which will be built. It will include toilets, showers, kitchen, washing facilities, wi-fi access and bins.
In February 2014, camping on the site was banned after a sewerage blockage in the old toilet block.
The master plan also touts a natural amphitheatre for small concerts and community events, five rental holiday cabins to generate income and a boat ramp extending into the water on piers.
“Patrons of the campsite will appreciate the availability of a small convenience store and those using the dam for water sports may wish to hire paddle boards, kayaks, fins or masks,” the report said.
