Great campsite. Flush toilets, large shelter with picnic table style seating and a newly constructed track down to the falls. Thank the council for their amazing effort to keep this place accessible and beautiful.



Lovely campsite, flush toilets, taps and a shelter part to sit at tables. @the.wandering.viking



It's the carpark for the falls. There's shelter, a couple bins, and flush toilets through the gate to the right of the shelter, right behind the shrubs. That might seem like overkill, but we saw a lot of toilet paper down the trail by the falls...Just use the available bathroom to not get this taken away from future travelers. No phone service, long gravel road, very secluded, lots of stars! Worth the trip!
