Nice spot to stop for a couple of days. A couple of other groups already set up, but we still found a nice spot that felt private. River was high, but there's still plenty of space to camp on firm ground (it hadn't rained for at least a few days when we were there, might be different after rain). The short dirt road in was in pretty good condition too. Very peaceful place to watch the river flow by and listen to birdsong.



We stayed here Easter weekend, and wouldn't go back. During the week it might be nice, more room and quieter. Unfortunately we had a bad experience with people playing loud music until 1am, firecrackers etc.. we were supposed to stay Easter weekend, but left after 1 night. The toilet paper everywhere is also not nice.



Stayed a week ago on a Sunday night. Most campers were heading home so able to find a river front camp around 2.00pm. Had a swim, a comfort fire to cook a meal and a relaxing night. Road in good.
