Lovely walk across a raging river to visit a grave. Not much else to say about the area. Good if you have done enough driving for the day. Long drop is good.

Just off SH43 Forgotten Highway about half way up the gravel section coming from the south, just before the bridge at Joshua Morgan's grave. We paid our respects to Joshua! There is really only space for 2 camper vans although a car managed to squeeze in during the night! Only a composting toilet available but if you're self contained that doesn't matter. Overall a good place to stay for the night. Fairly quiet with the odd car/truck going past during the night.
If travelling south it is located just as you cross the bridge on the right hand side. Its a small area with room for 2 large motorhomes at most. There is a picnic table, toilet and a sign saying "Joshua Morgan's Grave'. You can hear the gorge in the background which is nice. Very little traffic. Not noisy. Its ok for an overnight stop along the highway
Only a few places, near the road with not much traffic. Bit of an old picnic table, toilet very OK. Nice surroundings.
