Waroona Dam (Lake Navarino) is one of the larger dams in the south west and has been a popular spot for Four wheel drive enthusiast and campers alike.

Unfortunately due to a few bad eggs the dam and the surrounding lake has since been closed for camping but people are still more than welcome for a day trips and some 4x4 fun. Definitely recommend using caution when attempting some of the water crossings and bog holes as some of them are extremely deep. Snorkels are a high recommendation.

Lake Navarino is an aquatic playground and when full the surface area covers 145 hectares of which approximately 100 hectares (220 acres) of water is available for water skiing. The balance is for passive recreation such as canoeing, sailing, fishing and swimming.

Lake Navarino holds good numbers of Rainbow Trout, as well as many smaller Redfin Perch, all of which readily take flies. Trout fishing is at its best from the start of the season, September 1st, until the water starts to warm up with the onset of summer. The lake has also been stocked with freshwater marron and the gentle sloping shores of the lake make for very relaxing fishing.

Trout fishing season is from the 1st September each year through to 30th June. Not only can you fish at Lake Navarino, the Murray River, Drakesbrook Weir and Lake Brockman are all 10 - 30 minutes from here making Lake Navarino Forest Resort the ideal base to have that fishing holiday.

Fishing is permitted during the various gazetted seasons and licenses are required. Information on fishing and licenses can be obtained from any Western Australian Office of Fisheries or Australia Post.

There are a number of 4WD trails that can be explored around Lake Navarino for the off road adventurers. Please only use the authorised tracks.
