Yes, I am here right now - in Croc Bridge! :dance:

So you are welcome to ask me to do any research here for you. I have taken some pics, will try upload them now, and might need to email you the rest.

Here is my take on the tent situation here, with help from SO ;)

1. Tents 8 & 7 do run the risk of campers camping right next to the tent. Tent 8 more so than 7.

2. Both tents are fairly removed from the traffic that runs next to the northern fence to and from the ranger station which is east of the camp. Because of this traffic, I think wildlife sightings can be limited. Of course Tent 7 faces along the boundary 45 degrees to the road.

3. Tent 7 looks as if it does have nice shade.

4. Tents 1 - 6 are situated in a lovely shady and green area of the camp but the noise of the pump/water works/sewerage at the river, and the weir, could disturb one a little. I can hear that noise here in the camping area now.

Summary - six of one, half a dozen of the other. It is personal preference.

Seven is the tent next to the patch of green grass/bungalow. I have tried to include the camping area in one pic. One pic is taken showing 8 in forefront, with the camp fence to the left of pic:

Hi Dinkybird,

Thank you SO MUCH for going to all that trouble. :D :D :D

I think we slept in no. 8 last time, with less shade, and caravans right against us.
There seems to be enough shade at no. 7 to keep the worst sun off... and if not available, one of the other tents should be fine too...
Will phone this week to check. Hope you have a wonderful time there!

May you be blessed,

Friedrich von Hörsten :clap: :clap: :clap:
