Very disappointed, poorly sign posted , couldn't find waterfall, spoke to other Americans who were camping there who also couldn't find the waterfall? Toilets discusting!

Very basic and exposed sites with traditional long drops (filthy and not maintained!). Worth it though for the swimming holes, waterfall and tranquility. It's FREE and although not overly picturesque (a lot of forestry) the kids had a blast. Fords to cross to get to site 2 or 3 and to access gorge itself.
