The dump station has been removed. Some traffic to the toilets during the night as they are open 24 hours.

Really nice place!
Only 5$ by campervan, with really clean toilets, powered site, water for the campervan etc...
Also it's right in town so really nice if you just want to buy something.
It's a bit noisy in the morning but not a real nuisance!

Space for 8 or so vans, some powered sites next to toilets - but these were taken by the time we got there (7pm Friday night). Note: opposite delivery entrance to the supermarket, so early morning noise.

Basically a carpark in the middle of the town, but: dump station and fresh water; squeaky-clean public toilet. For $5 per night (per car/van, not person), this seems to me a god-send for an overnight stay.
Note that the $5 fee is payable at the gas station across the street (not city council or some early-closing-office), so you can arrive anytime.
