The camp is on the site of an old track cutter’s camp, this is a good place to stop for lunch. There is a newly erected picnic shelter with a fireplace. Water is available both from a tank and from the stream at the southern end of the clearing.
Just past the shelter are striking pumice cliffs.
It takes about 2 hours 15 min from the River Road carpark to get to Verns Camp.
