Additional notes

Vehicle Access is by way of a single track, unsurfaced lane – there are no passing places so access and egress by multiple vehicles should be planned. We advise dropping Scouts off at the lane end and letting them ""hike"" into the campsite.''''Building is only to be used for sleeping in an emergency.
