$10 pp on an unpowered site right next to a lake/former Gold Mine. Fully equiped kitchen and hot showers. Construction and improvements are going on at the moment.
The best is the lovely pub with a billiard table, piano and a cosy fireplace. Went there after dinner and were invited by the owner for a local beer.

Friendly owner, friendly pub. Powered spots are horrible! Stay unpowered at a spot near the cute lake with your van. Cheap, but toilets and showers old and dirty. Nice atmosphere though.

Amazing (for the price)! This is a backpacker place. Small cabins ($20pp) or camping $10pp. They have clean, hot showers, a kitchen (with power outlets), laundry facilities ($2wash/$2 dry), and a bar. What more could you ask for? If you're looking for 5*, keep looking, but if you are a backpacker on a budget, this is the place for you! (Some people do live in cabins and work in the morning, but there is a grassy lot across the street if you really need it). Friendly staff, friendly residents, and really cool bar!!

This is such a funky space opposite the Historic Empire Hotel!!! New bathrooms that are spotless with great hot water and new shower. Kitchen is large and well equipped. The camping area is small but beside a small lake and the town is round the corner. Friendly pub and good food.. A great find....

Awful place! The lady at the hotel was only interested in grabbing our 20 dollars. It's basically the hotel's backyard, with old, dirty and shabby facilities. Rubbish bins full up so rubbish on the floor. No curtains/door in the shower. Cheap price and cheap facilities. Avoid this place.
