Nice place to spend the night. Lots of spaces close to the lake/dam. Also lots of trailers (looks like they’re here for long-term camping). Quite pricey ($25 for 2 adults) for what it is. We weren’t wowed, but we didn’t expect much different.

Beautiful spot beside the river which flows from the dam. We were there in autumn and the colours were magnificent. Trout fishing at your doorstep, the cycle trail is right there too.

A nice enough campsite, was empty when we visited in April. If you camp down by the lake it's a bit of a hike to the toilets. Excellent Vodafone 3G reception.
