We booked in but chose not to stay because it was totally airless and felt very oppressive. We let the other campers know to tell anyone looking for a spot that we weren't coming back.

We stayed in campsite 1. By far the biggest camp site, we fit 1 car + camper trailer and another car easy - if you wanted you could fit another car. Water down the end in the small creek and you can walk to the camp site next door for the toilet. Wonderful hearing the bird noises and very private. If you're relying on solar power make sure you bring a generator as the tree canopy makes it challenging to use your solar.



Beautiful spot. Very private only 3 campsites. Little river to collect water and have a quick dip if needed.
