CLOSED padlocked gates. Can't access dump spot. Apparently have to get code on line. Ph no on sign knows nothing about the place.Went on to Shelley Beach to dump, large area but access to dump uphill and not easy for caravans.

Basic camp with aged amenities. Big attraction are the hot mineral pools.Sites are generous with lots of grass around. We were pleased to see many of the Permanents have gone and further ones are discouraged. Much cleaner!

The price is not that bad what you get here. The kitchen is quite disaster. No any equipment and fridge doesn't work at all. Radek
