  1. Yes there is a water tank, you can see it in the first photo on the left of the building. It has some small % of wrigglers in it I think, from when I was there in May 2013 anyway. There’s other water nearby (relatively) at other campsites and prob the ranger station. There is also a holiday house immediately north of Jacks Paddock which would probably have rainwater (well there’s no main water there so you’d think so)
