We took 40 minutes on a gravel road to go there. The spot is in the middle of nowhere, so very quiet. Cool but to much time to reach it

We stayed there for one night with our campervan (Mercedes sprinter 7 m). It is doable with a 2 WD BUT in case anything happens I guess no rental insurance will cover for it. It takes a long time to reach the campsite. It's "only" 15 kilometres from the main road but because of the bad condition of the road it took us almost one hour to reach it. So consider the time! The campsite itself was very secluded, quote nice. Only one other couple was camping there in a tent. There is a toilet, but we didn't see it because we used our own. It is an experience in itself to camp there. You surrounded by mountains



Except of the road it's one of my most enjoyed campgrounds. Just lower your tyre pressure around 10 psi and drive slowely. This will help to prevent damage to tyres and suspension. The cg itself is mid of nowhere and most of the time you are by youself. Droptoilet is ok and amazing spot for stargazing. Yesterday someone even managed to bring one of these StarRV 10m long motorhomes to this place.
