My wife and I arrived at about 4pm by car. The first impression was the place looked deserted and not well managed. The staff whom we met at the office looked happy that he could give me some feedback to my questions about that place.
I was there to explore the possibilities for landscape and macro photography. Besides the setting sun, there's not much for landscape shoots. The jungle trail is on the other side of the river that is connected by a hanging bridge. The hanging bridge is solid as we walked and jumped on it. The trail is well marked but we did not complete the trail since we arrived late, so I could not comment much about that part of the park.
The park has a number of chalets for rent. There is a dormitory too. A lot of the benches around the park area are in need for replacement among other things. The beach is almost run over by debris of stones and drift wood. I hope this is not "letting nature take it's course." The open sea at the beach front is murky and dirty which I believe is caused by the heavy silt brought down by the muddy river. To be fair, I have seen photographs of clear water of the same river. While we there the river is muddy in colour and swimming is out of the question even if the water is clear since there is a warning sign of crocodiles.
We came across a number of Caucasians staying there during our short visit. And obviously they like what they saw. But for my wife and I, we would not go there with those run down facilities much less having to pay RM10/= for the entrance fee.
