Great location and very cheap ($5 per person). There are toilets and a sink with a pump tap; however, the toilets are long-drops and you have to take all your rubbish with you upon leaving (this includes your used toilet paper). If that puts you off, this place is not for you. We on the other hand, loved the fact that we went to bed with a beautiful starry night view and woke up to a stunning view of the lake and surrounding mountains. All in all, a decent campsite for the price.

Drove to the site & saw sign saying it was closed for winter.
A sign on the main road, would have been helpful, as this was a long & unnecessary drive.

Although this is a beautiful spot with a great view on the lake, we thought it’s way overpriced as we paid $10 per person (end of November). There are only very smelly long drop toilets without toilet paper and there’s no drinking water.

Toilets were very smelly and only the men's toilet was in use. Very windy. $5 per person so that's good.

Officially there is space for 32 campervans but there were way more here. Other than that it's a really beautiful place to be. You can take a swim in the lake and the view is gorgeous, especially when the sun is setting. In the evening the sky was clear and you could stargaze from the shore. Toilets are very clean but bring your own toilet paper. No tap water but there are sinks with pumps (but water is not suitable for drinking).

Beautiful view of the lake! It was $5 per person and had a clean bathroom and dish washing station.

Lovely little campsite with clean dry toilets next to the lake. No sandflies but lots of ducks;) not many places to pitch the tent so try to arrive early (we were here at 2pm and it was pretty empty but at around 7pm it was quite full). The campsite is only $5 per person!!
