Stunning spot, clean, remote and good facilities. Toilets clean but tap wasn’t working so would suggest bringing enough water as you’ll need.

- Sealed road so anyone can make it here. - Firepits are able to be used (BYO Wood) - Toilets are available. - Free to stay - Bins available. Very scenic route on the way down here, give or take an hour to get to. Not too busy but definitely expect other people. Can be hard to find a spot that isn't on a hill to set up but overall. Very simple and easy for a first-timer solo or with friends but make sure to come prepared as it is a long drive back. Only really worth a one or two night stay.

Absolutely Beautiful, very quiet, camp fire spots available and toilets on site. Only down sides swimming isn’t recommended and it’s absolutely freezing in the mountains.

Access to site is via sealed road. 2 well maintained drop toilets and bins provided. Several fire rings surround the site and it is situated near a small river (however you cannot swim or drink from). Nice location however somewhat close to the road (so you will hear cars passing) and it’s primary use would be for a quick one night stay (particularly because it is situated next to the 6 foot hiking track). The area is a bit hilly which can make the area a little hard to find a flat location to pitch a tent. Wouldn’t recommend a weekend trip here but a good spot for a one night stay/stopover or even as a picnic location. Good hikes along the road in, however come prepared as the good ones are quite the distance.
