a typical National Park type camp. The flush toilets and showers are in good condition. But what makes this place amazing is the gorgeous Paradise Waterhole, a 100m from camp. It has crystal clear water and was beautiful to swim in after a hot day. Plus only 4km away is the Rock Slides which has areas you can slide down the rock like a water slide, all great fun.

Peaceful NP campground. Most sites have their own firepit. BYO firewood. Many shady spots. Amenities block clean. Easy walk to waterhole.
