Dingo camp is a large site but not near running water which brings lots of bugs. There is a defined camp fire, and the sit is slashed nicely. It's 10klm off of the main road and the roads are narrow with a few creek crossings. We'd booked to stay here for 2 nights but only stayed one as the site had limited activity to keep you busy fir two days with kids. Also agree with the comment that looks like Dingo and Mick Fienn have been swapped.
