This a great spot, right by the river, lots of space & toilets. Showers too but didn't test those, was too cold!

The area was nice and peaceful with the river just around. We had a lot of space. The toilet was very dark, it felt a bit creepy. But it was not too dirty. Theres a shower (cold water, you gotta be brave) which is a plus.

Great swimming hole. Plenty of spaces to camp. Busy in weekends and can get bit loud during summer weekends, and therefore unfortunately there can be bit of rubbish around. New toilet block clean and tidy. Lovely place for families, can take pets and great to have fire to toast marshmallows!

Next to the river and could have campfires. Nice big grass area and showers/toilets.

A lovely secluded spot by the river. You can make your bonfire and watch the beautiful starlit sky. A bit dirty though but wonderful and free!

Technically Vinegar Hill is NOT free. They have a posted fee of $15 (on the toilets) but don't seem to enforce it. Although, the payment methods are either mail-in or directly to the ranger so that would suggest that the ranger does come along once in a while to collect.
