Theewater Sports Club, is situated on a peninsula stretching into the Theewaterskloof dam, surrounded by farmlands, majestic mountains and a variety of wildlife. Theewaterskloof dam is the 7th largest dam in South Africa and covers an area of 5 100ha with a capacity of 483 million cubic metres, when full.

Our Club was founded in 1979 and from humble beginnings, has grown to be one of the largest water sports clubs in the Western Cape. The unique location of the Club, excellent sailing, fishing & powerboating conditions, good infrastructure and the picturesque setting has made Theewater Sports Club one of the most popular water sports venues in South Africa.

We welcome the general public to visit us, unwind, relax and enjoy the rustic surroundings.


A vast area on the Club premises is available for public camping. Caravan and tent sites on grassed areas are situated very close to the water’s edge, with numerous campsites under the trees.

There are currently 19 camping sites fitted with electrical points, which are the only sites that can be reserved. Cleaning staff ensure that the ablution facilities are kept neat and clean. Braai facilities are provided on the public side. When camping at the water’s edge you may anchor your boat at or near your camp site.

Visitors are reminded that no music is allowed. Any complaints in this regard will be taken up by security on duty immediately. Our aim is for you to enjoy your visit and you are encouraged to report any untoward behavior immediately so that the necessary action can be taken.
