With the dam level above 25 per cent, many locals have taken advantage of Lake Keepit's facilities during the school holidays, making the park the busiest it's been in years.
Reflections Holiday Park Lake Keepit manager Leith Smith said almost all of the accommodation options were sold out through the holidays and over the long weekend.
He said the October long weekend had more than 1000 day visitors alone, which was "very exciting stuff".
"Last year we didn't even get halfway booked out for the long weekend, and this year, we had to turn a lot of people away from cabin and powered site bookings," Mr Smith said.
"We've got 21 cabins and they were all booked out, 47 powered sites which were booked out, 30 unpowered on the holiday side, 180 bushcamping sites which we ended up with 178 sites booked so only two left.
"Luckily with the amount of room we could still have that amount of people with COVID-19 spacing."
He said everything in the park was getting used, including the tennis courts, BMX track, and cafe.
The lake was clearly a drawcard too, with Mr Smith spotting water skiers, jet skiers, fishers, sailors, and youngsters enjoying the water park during the holiday period.
"If we keep this much water or more during the Christmas period, it will be very very busy," he told the NVI.
"We're already taking a lot of bookings for the Christmas break."
Lake Keepit Sailing Club also officially opened their sailing season on the long weekend, and enjoyed a fancy dress boat competition and a race to commemorate the occasion.
The club's secretary Tim Corben said Kevin Overton won the fancy dress competition with his Laser adorned with balloons, and Mick Bradfield won the race with his vessel, decked out with a flamingo inflatable.
He said it was great that the water level was as high as what it was.
"It still hasn't reached the bottom of our very long launching concrete strip, it's got about 30m to go, but we've got some wonderful sailing water with what we've got," Mr Corben said.
"It's nice and deep and we know there's no trees or logs out there because we've seen the bottom."
Mr Corben also said the park was looking "absolutely beautiful".
"It's been beautifully mown and green, and there's huge areas down to the rising water level," he said.
