A huge DOC campsite with the basics. The new vault (flash drop) toilet blocks are clean and well maintained, water (boil), and some shelter. While the site itself is sheltered by perimeter scrub, it could be hard to find overhead shade shelter from the sun, it seems very exposed that way, but could always use the picnic side for Day Use which has more shelter from the sun. Location is ideal being close to QT, and short hiking trails on the doorstep of the campsite. Reasonable 2-4 bars 4G Spark signal (depending on where you are) - again it's a huge site. DOC Campsite Pass is valid here.

Overprice campsite and just with Vax pass. Camp si huge but no cell phone signal neather drinking water. No flushing toilet. But cheapest campsite for NSC near to QT. Lot of long term people.



Spent two nights there. Heaps of room. Caretaker (I think) on site but still honesty box system. Alot of permanents. No cellphone coverage.
