Water Tarkine coast

Hi Is there likely to be fresh water in Foam, Ford or Rocky creek at the moment? Is there a spot for 1 small tent near any of them? Thanx Ros

We walked through there again in late January- I know that's six weeks ago but will hopefully help a bit.
Camped on the south side of Foam Creek. Plenty of flat grassy camping and water flowing in the creek- really nice. Ford and Rocky both had some (less) water.
My suggestion, and one that I have always found very helpful and accurate, is to call PWS at Arthur River for an update

Ford Creek always has some water in my experience, ditto Foam and Rocky. In fact, the least reliable water sources are generally the more northern rivers (apart from the Arthur, of course).
