This is a combined truck stop and rest area, where camping is permitted and the facilities are good, particularly in dry weather. Care is required if weather is wet.

A long drop toilet by the side of the road appears to be cleaned periodically but don't bet on finding toilet paper.

The camping area is partly screened from the road, and from road noise, by trees behind which there is room for a substantial number of campers. An open area nearer to the road leads to spaces among the trees where shade is available and fire wood within a short walk.

Road noise is subdued due to the distance between the carriage way and the camping area..
