For a free camp, this small gravel car park is well worth a visit, with a modern toilet block (no sink?) and rubbish bins close by. If you visit the Treetops Walk and register to stay, they will give you the gate code to allow you to camp in their car park after hours. Not many level spots but a really nice aspect and some grass. Watch out for the nighttime mosquitos, they are numerous and out for blood.



Great place, very clean toilets and bins next to it. The only thing is that there is no sink or potable water but the rest is excellent.



We really enjoyed this place as we were the only one and had an amazing sunset. Clean facilities, flushing toilets. Even recycling and landfill bins. And all this for free !!! Definitely recommend it.
