Couldn't recommend this enough! It was $12.50 per adult for an unpowered site. Clean bathrooms, rooms for hundreds of campers, nice kitchen facilities and washing machine (but no dryer). The showers were ideal and the site is in a great location!

Beautiful camping ground. You can just come and register at the house (it is described). For 12,50$ pp it’s very nice. Clean toilets!!! Nice kitchen with fridge and freezer. And warm showers! Lovely and quiet place with many trees where you can park.

Had an unpowered campsite for a night and loved this place. Quiet, off the road with open grassy areas for tents.
Facilities were clean and well above expectation for price point -- kitchen with fridge, kettle and stove; $2 washing machine and showers. (Two things you might want to note is showers are on a 5min timer, but they're hot with lovely water pressure. Second, the hot water in the kitchen has a 5-step, ten minute warmup process. We just boiled the kettle). Opportunity for a campfire as well.
At $12.50pp we though this was a steal and would have loved to stayed longer if we weren't flying out.

Big space with lots of green. Not many people and the kitchen and toilet are clean. Love this place!

Really nice and quiet campsite! Big area under trees with camping tables and lots of fire places and also some BBQs. Facilities are clean and tidy, and for that price really good!
