A very good campsite with excellent, clean facilities. Camp sites are on grass. Access is along 4km of reasonable dirt road, okay for on road caravans. Overall a very good facility.

Beautiful setting. Peaceful. We enjoyed the birds and the night sky. Unfortunately, we didn't get the message that the electric would be out so were not able to make use of the "self-catering" to prepare our meal or even boil water for coffee.
