This site is maintained by Tablelands Regional Council and donations are used to maintain and upgrade the facilities. It is meant to be a spot for a quick overnighter on the way to somewhere else with a 48hr maximum stay period. As there are restrictions on free camps in the Port Douglas area, this is the nearest cheap campsite. The site is just off the highway so is not quiet and you are likely to be sharing with other caravanners.

When we called (27/3/14) the toilet was clean and well maintained. There is an easily accessed dump point in front of the amenities bblock.
