Does anyone know if the water from Yalwal Ck is drinkable? There's a few old mines in the area, and I've read that the water at the Toorooroo campsite upstream isn't suitable for drinking.
Thinking of camping along Yalwal Ck near-ish to it's confluence with the Shoalhaven or maybe a bit further south. Any good spots / places to check out around there?

The campsite at the dam might provide a few contaminants in addition to those from the mines. Nothing a good filter couldn't fix though.

I haven't been to confluence of Shoalhaven and Yalwal Ck, but have been to lots of other similar spots around there (e.g Timboolina Flat upstream into Ettrema). I agree a good filter would deal with any problems.
If you camp up at Yalwal and Ettrema Ck junction there should be good water in Ettrema Creek- lots of great spots to camp and swim.
Ettrema Ck is worth an explore, and Barron / Brady's hill are a good short walks also
