If you're a hiker, this spot has it all! Trail runs, day and overnight hikes, sleeping out in tents or caves, as well as swimming in crisp, clear rivers. The main campsite has hot showers but no electricity nor cell phone reception. IMHO - One...More

We saw only two people briefly in 51/2 hrs after leaving the visitors centre parking. It was very peaceful and quickly felt remote even with the rough path to follow. The visitor centre gives you a helpful booklet detailing a number of walks of varying...More
