Beautiful and peaceful setting among the trees with plenty of space and away from any road noise. Facilities were clean and fine for us as there were only 3 other guests in the camp. If the camp was full kitchen and ablutions would probably not be sufficient. Owners were very warm and welcoming hosts. Great value for money.

Great family camping ground. And must let pets in as we saw quite a few dogs. Clean tidy and friendly. We are a family of 7, and kids had a great time with so much space to ride around and play. Short walk to a river to swim in. And not far from beaches. Very generous sized campsites and very reasonable rates. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and hope to be back again one day.

The campsite is very quite with a lot of space. Clean showers and kitchen make this place a great stop. The price is currently $12,50 for non powered sites and $15 for powered sites.

25$ for an unpowered site for 2. Lovely hot 5 minute showers. Can buy logs for container lit fires for 7$. Tons of sites amongst the trees. Laundry and dump available. Perfect.

Really nice, quiet campground. I paid 12.50 for a tent. good price for this tidy, clean campsite. 5 minute hot shower incl. Toilets and kitchen are clean. Nothing bad to say.

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!
