Situated on the Boyne River to the west of Bjelke Petersen Dam, this lake is about 15 km from Proston. Since its construction in 1983, a variety of species have been stocked here. Australian bass, silver perch and yellowbelly dominate the angling, with barramundi and Murray cod stocking proving unsuccessful. A Stocked Impoundment Permit, available at the campground, is required to fish here.
Fishing is banned in the Boyne River from 200 m upstream to 400 m downstream of the Boondooma Dam wall.
The Lake Boondooma Camping and Recreation Area has self-contained cabins and a caravan park on the foreshore. A boat ramp and hire-boat business is located in the recreation area.
