Great spot, but really windy.... only stayed 1 night due to strong winds. They are doing a lot of work to the place & it will not be free for much longer...

Great spot right on the waters edge with newly constructed toilets and hot showers available

Fantastic big area new hot shower and toilet campers please look after them keep them clean

Great spot, modern toilets and showers, no phone service, plenty of room, amazing sunsets, highly recommend.

The council have really hit the jackpot with this fantastic camp ground. Right on the lake front, large level sites, beautiful scenery and with new clean toilets and hot showers just over the road. And all for free.
