Reportedly, this is a stunning area. The campsites were clean except the toilets were not working, with a lot of toilet paper everywhere, and the long-drop was not up to standard. (Aug-14).

“Blutkuppe is a stunning area. The campsite was beautifully clean with three bins to collect items for recycling. However unfortuately the same counldn't be said for the toilets. There were a number of toilets available but not one was working, so as a result there was a lot of toilet paper "decorating" the environment. The toilets are supposed to operate on a Solar, water recycling system but it obviously hadn't worked for some time. There was one long drop, with a rather broken seat and no screen around it. The toilets at Arch rock on the other hand were excellent. It is a pity that the authorities spend more effort patrolling the park checking permits rather than making sure the facilties are working. ” - Jane Turner, 2014/08/26
