Fantastic place in the jungle right at the river. It's actually a backpacker hostel. As an Overlander you can stay in the orange grove. Comfortable, open common area. There is free drinking water available and you can pick up and squeeze tthe oranges. You can swim in the river (and have a shower). Hammocks on the shores invite you to relax. Very clean toilets.

The access from George Ville via a pretty bad road. Right before the Barton Creek Outpost you have to cross a river, which might be deep heavy rains - when we crossed it was 50 cm.
