A rather scruffy site in a beautiful forest valley.
An old sawmill site with many relics littering the area but providing a firm, bumpy graveled circuit.
Well shaded by Blackwood and wattles.
Exotics include hydrangea. Most of the clearing is covered in long grass which is now being overgrown by blackberry.
Looks out over Acheron River tree-ferns and surrounding forested slopes.
Logs were originally winched down from the Great Dividing Range to the east (Lowering Gear Track). The Feiglin Road is new. The Feiglin campsite might be acceptable if log trucks are not operating and throwing up dust.
This is a free camping area.
