Packed with sandflies, could not be outside the camper without being overwhelmed with flies. We left to stay down the road at the river near the railway

The gravel road is open and pretty good, I think most normal cars or vans wouldn't have difficulties. The campsite has a lot of space. Simple, cleanish drop toilet with paper. Seemed very quiet. It is a paid campsite, I don't know the price, I didn't sleep there. But I definitely would if I was in the area again.
