Spent three days two nights at the campsite with a group of friends. It was an awesome experience!
There was no water tap, but the river water is drinkable after treated/boiled. We brought drinking water there ourselves.
There are two toilets at the campsite and one for the park. These are compost toilets. The smell may sometimes be disturbing, but not so bad.
The river water is crystal clear. It was refreshing to wipe body with the river water. There is also a waterfall about 40 minutes walk from the campsite, which I think is a must go.

I have been to this campsite twice already and loved it both times. I have already planned to take work friends with. There are water taps but the water is browner than the river. Ps the river is crystal clear. There is two toilets and the one don't even open the door and the second is ok if you really need to! But stunning place for the family but careful with the kids around the stream.
