Didn't stay, just went for a day trip. It's beautiful, quiet and very scenic. Awesome walks. A fair bit of gravel road to get there but it's not corrugated.

Not sure if I camped at the correct spot. When I arrived at the toilets I went straight up a hill and slept in that carpark. Only realized in the morning that there was another road that went up behind the toilets. I was the only one at the car park i slept. Wonder if I camped at the wrong spot. But I enjoyed it. Felt very remote surrounded by the nature. Short walk to a beautiful lookout. There were a lot of students sleeping in tents in the bush at the start of the walk to the lookout. So if you're looking to pitch a tent, have a look around the start of the walking track.

Nice spot. Sandflies are a problem. Not a lot of level ground. If you need sunlight for your panels.
