The spot itself was fine but nothing special. Seems like a spot locals hang out a bit, surprising amount of cars coming and going. Didn’t feel unsafe just not as relaxing as expected. 2 basic long drop toilets, no water other than the stream.

Nice quite spot just off the beaten path. Simple toilets and no water but a nice creek is here along with a picnic table. Room for plenty of campers looking to just crash for the night.

We spent​ one night at Almadale Reserve and it was perfect. We parked the van on the grass close to the toilets. The place is nice and quiet and the facilities are open all the night long. There is no water and no tap but the site is perfect anyway.
