Road in was ok with just a few rough patches. We got a great camp site not many camping here. Had a beautiful night sitting by the camp fire, waking up to the sound of birds.



Came back from swimming to find people had set up camp pretty much on top of us. This was honestly the most dusty place we have stayed. I suggest staying elsewhere and do a day trip in. 1 long drop toilets that stinks is pretty average considering how many locals were there. Couldn't open our pop top on the van due to people driving so fast & dust flying everywhere. You think people would use their head & just drive a bit slower next to camp sites. 15 people in 1 camp next to us. Said they didn't pay. Seen no rangers on a busy long weekend. Absolutely loved the falls but wouldn't recommend staying in such a dirty camp ground. Road in was fine if you just go slow



Road in ok in most places with very small patches of rough corrigations but nothing to rival Cape York. We managed to get our 22.6 foot off road van in no problem. It has as pretty busy however, it is a long weekend so is to be expected. We have manage to find a spot.
