About Kamping Poy
The Kamping Poy lake was created by the Khmer Rouge using slave labour to build a 8km long dam. Over 10,000 Cambodians died due to disease, malnutrition and other causes during the construction of the dam, which was aimed to improve irrigations to the rice paddies.
Kamping Poy is now a popular recreational spot for locals, with both boating and swimming being popular activities. You can rent small boats (2000-4000 riels per hour) to go out on to the lake.
