The campground has good facilities but no powered sites are available and entrance and camping fees apply. It is a great base from which to explore Bandilngan Windjana Gorge.
The limestone through which the gorge has cut was once part of an ancient barrier reef that teemed with ancient life forms. It formed around 350 million years ago, in the Devonian period, when a large part of the Kimberley was covered with a tropical sea. Perfectly preserved within its rocks are amazing fossils of a huge diversity of marine animals, including the world-famous Gogo fish, named after nearby Gogo Station.
The deep, moist soils of the river bank support the tall broad-leaved leichardt tree, native figs and the paper-barked cadjeputs. These trees also provide shelter from the hot sun for many waterbirds, a colony of fruit bats and a large group of corellas. Freshwater crocodiles can often be seen in the pools.
