great spot staryed there last night there is plenty of spots to camp, not a lot of walking as most of the tracks are over grown, the rangers patrol regularly so control behaviours great spot for families to go, it wasn't even cold :lol: highly reccomend it

Not Bad Spot, a small walking track near the camp site, you dont have to walk to the camp site, you can camp near your car. very quiet, very bush like. :D

I have not caught a cab here, but I have found that The Blue Mountains Taxi Company are good for bushwalkers so it would be worth giving them a call.
Happy camping
Matt :)

there is an actual camp site, i thought where you parked your cars was it. that being the case, camper trailers and caravans are feasable, seen them there often (been there more then a dozen times) fires are alright, the rangers dont mind as long as its controllable and rocked in. along the drive into down to the camp site keep an eye out for standing dead wood and other wood. as the camp site has been pilaged many times over of anything burnable, i normaly set up camp, go for a drive back up the track and grab a boot load or two of what ever wood i can find, 500m away from camp is heaps of wood. does get quite cold in winter (had to use chopped grass under tent to stop cold rising).
swimming spot... there is one, from the camp site head back up the track, to the day area . from the road head straight through the bolards. cross creek, climb down cliff and follow track for 30 or so mins. eventualy you come to a sort of lake, including little beach, other then start bit mostly easy going. anymore questions..
