Lake Keepit is busier than it has been in months, with visitors flocking to enjoy the dam as the level climbs to 10.5 per cent.
Park manager Leith Smith has worked there for about a year, and he said the weekend was the busiest he'd ever seen it.
"It's really good. Everybody's attitudes are a lot different, they are a lot more positive," Mr Smith said.
"We are still getting a lot of interest from people who haven't visited yet, they've been saying they're going to try and come out next week or next weekend."
In January, it reached a new low of 0.6 per cent. Now, Mr Smith said he hoped the level would now reach 15 per cent so the park would have more visitors over the Easter long weekend.
"Traditionally when the dam has had water in the past, that Easter weekend has been huge," he said.
"I suggest everybody book in quickly."
Lake Keepit Sailing Club vice-commodore Ian Pine was "elated" with the levels, but said he wanted the 10 per cent minimum to be secured in the Namoi water sharing plan so it wasn't able to drop down again.
"Everybody associated with Keepit needs that security, they need that 10 per cent, it doesn't matter who they are," Mr Pine said.
"We're elated to see the water but we're frustrated with the uncertainty and I guess we can't live with that uncertainty because we'll all go broke one way or another.
"We rely upon our major [Keepit Kool] Regatta as our primary source of operating funds for the year."
Mr Pine said the current plan was a "failed instrument" that "doesn't take into account the environmental and social needs and doesn't reflect the changing climate".
"The DPI modelled that 10 per cent and showed that it would have absolutely minimal impacts for releases downstream," he said.
"There's no argument not to have it but it's a matter of how we move the elephant that is the state government."
