18$ per person. No trees or shady areas. Big clean kitchen nice clean toilets with token operated showers that "ate" my token and did not turn the hot water on at all.. Nice view infront of water don't expect to swim thought only fishing..

The campground is generally tidy and in a quiet spot right on the water. However, the facilities are quite run down and showers are not free. We stayed in much nicer campgrounds for the same price. There were some long-term guests having a party the night we were there, and while the owners did attempt to quiet them down at our request (for which we are grateful), the guests didn't quieten down and kept yelling quite abusive language. They were even playing bagpipes at one point! The owners were friendly and helpful but the campground is very overpriced for what you get.

We don't often use campsites as fully self contained but this site looked a good position to sea kayak from, and I also wanted to fit a solar panel to my motorhome.

At $15 per person per night it was cheap enough especially with electric hook up, water tap near pitch and excellent toilet shower (token) facilities and a common room with fridge freezer, cooker, microwave, seating, wifi (pay) books to swap, TV etc really well set up. Site was a really good find especially if travelling in one of the smaller self contained vehicles.

Booking in was easy, site was quiet (4th Dec) amazing stars at night and so quiet, shame about the rain in the morning oh and the tractor digging a trench at 8am (its site services being laid in next few days so wont be a problem)

Overall great site, next to the sea with launching area and very quiet. There are permanent caravans so maybe it will be busier in holiday time.

We stayed in one of the cabins. Price was good. Cabin was clean. Kitchen facilities were very good and lounge area good to relax on a rainy day like when we visited. Owner was very nice. Hot showers that are only $1 for 4 mins.

Nice little site on the waters edge with clean facilities including showers and kitchen/sitting room. Very wet weekend meant that the grassed areas were a bit sodden. Will go again when the weather is better.

Nice campsite right at the water, really quiet and relaxing. Big kitchen and common room and clean bathrooms. Nice owner and only $15 pp on a powered site.
