Lake Belmore was built in 1995 to supply town water to Croydon and provides additional benefits with the opportunity to swim, fish, ski and facilities for barbecues and picnics. A regular stocking program to ensure future fishing has been implemented. Unfortunately at this stage they do not permit camping around the lake.
