About Dinokeng Fishing & Camping
Dinokeng Fishing & Camping is situated on the South Eastern banks of Roodeplaat Dam where the Edendale River flows into the dam (directly opposite Leeuwfontein Estates and Sable Hills Waterfront Estate), which is a 15 minute drive from Pretoria. Please keep in mind that we are out on the Kameelfontein Road and not the Kameeldrift Road.
We currently offer 22 camp sites – all 22 sites have electricity points and braai facilities. 11 Sites are directly on the waters edge, for the ardent fishermen, and 11 sites off the water for the non-fishing campers.
Most of our visitors are very serious fisherman that enjoy a drink or two - but appreciate nature and respect one another and keep noise levels down. We are a family destination, and cater for the individual, families and groups. We have clean ablutions with proper flushing toilets and running hot / cold water, a wash up facility is located at the rear of the ablution block.
We have 2x four sleeper cabins which consist of 1 double bed and 2 single beds only. Own bedding, cutlery, crockery, chairs etc need to be supplied.
Note: We regret no dogs and cats are permitted.
