Not overly picturesque but for a car park you can still get a nice view, some privacy, have a swim and a shower to support the community, great toilets, friendly locals and the dump station is right there too. Perfect camp site when you’re on your way trying to get to your destination and need a great and quiet place to rest your head.
Be a responsible camper so these facilities continue to be available and locals continue to support it.

A bit unromantic place. It a parking area at the end of the village. But huge fields of grass around, good for a walk or some sports. If you need a place to sleep for a night, it’s absolutely ok, the toilets are clean and it is a quite area.

Nous avons eu beaucoup de mal à trouver l'endroit. c'est un parking dans une zone d'activités sportives (piscine, terrain de sport et parc). Il ,y a des toilettes et une dump station. Nous étions les seuls.

Great spot for overnight stays. Good clean toilets that talk. Plenty of picnic tables around, play ground for the kids and plenty of space to get out and stretch the legs. Main part of town is close by.

The community has made a great effort to lay on excellent services here. Two clean 'singing' toilets (which always make me chuckle), dump station, water, rubbish bins, playground and nearby by swimming pool for a summertime dip. A one stop shop! Also, while driving around town, keep an eye out for the quirky painted cows. There's over 40 of them and each one tells a story.

If you are looking for a one sleep stop. Come here! Literally a recreation parking lot with talking bathrooms ..... that was cool. Once you pull in the lot sick to the right and go down private road to give yourself privacy beside the skate park in behind the pool!!
