Sungai Tua Recreational Forest consists primarily of young, regenerating secondary forests.

There are also a small number of old-growth forest trees remaining here.
Facilities at the main site include riverside gazebos for picnicking, camping grounds and changing rooms. And, of course, a beautiful river to swim in with many rocks, boulders and plants to add to the beauty.
