  1. Passed through 9/5/22. Water tank 100% full. A pity we can’t camp here on this long day!

  2. S2N E2E there 9.5.21
    Lovely views and easy walking for a change. Pity can’t camp there anymore. Water tank nearly full.
    Mick and Carol.

  3. I am confused. is camping allowed or not. If I had nor read the small print, I would not have been aware that there was no camping, but it is not marked as being closed like other former camping areas along the trail.
    If it is closed are there any camping or accommodation options between Heysens rest and ‘Mount Compass?

  4. I liked this camp site. It was really quiet and well protected from wind. You can see Victor Harbor from this spot and the ground is reasonably flat.

  5. As always Michael, thanks for your updates and your photos!

    Hey Jez, you’re welcome.


  6. Sounds like someone didn’t like it being there.

    I will report this to our Maintenance group


  7. That stile is new, the lower step should be OK. I don’t suppose you have a picture

    Hi Julian,

    No picture, sorry. The step is still there on the ground with the nails poking out of it, if I had a hammer I would have re-installed it.



  8. Another great job by the Friends.

    The Tank and shelter sit just below the peak (and trig point) at Mt Cone. On the day I hiked through, (early May 2012) there was quite a wind and the site was well protected. Tank was above 20% full.

    The lower step on the stile over the fence has been removed or fallen off though.
