Burn Creek goldfield campsite | Nelson Lakes National Park
Beyond Jacobs Ladder a significant river flat was once inhabited by gold miners. First, I believe, in the 1870s, and then again during The Depression. You can see some legacy of their efforts with the stacked rocks. Nothing else remains from that time.
The river flat grass is just a bit clumpy, and damp, so it is better to camp under the trees. There are a number of possibilities, just take your pick. Obviously there are no facilities, other than the fast running stream.
