My wife and I booked in for two nights based on a third hand recommendation.
We drove out past all the camp clad hunters with their rifles to the parking area, discovering that not only were we not in the national park, we were so remote we couldn't easily use this as a base for exploring the giant Forrest. Next we climbed a steep and unpleasant track to the camp. The main building looks OK, the toilets and showers are close to the main building but very primitive and inadequate for more than a few people. Our 'room' turned out to be a steep climb up a dangerously nasty track up the hill a couple of hundred feet, at the top of which we were confronted by a home made really nasty tent, poorly made louvers, no fly screens, wasps happilly coming and going.
Easy decision, we left. We had prepaid two nights, what an incredible con.
Do not go here.
