Great location by the lake. You can see the bike riders on the new Lake Dunston trail. A bit noisy as the road constantly has traffic. Maybe park down on the grass near toilets might be quieter. Rubbish bins there as well.

Stayed for one night, toilets were clean and there was running water and sinks to wash dishes. Next to a main road but surprisingly quiet. Nice place to stop for the night

Lovely place for a night. There was 6 other campers there but loads of space for us all. Clean bathrooms and sinks although no drinking water. it's by the road but the cars didn't keep us awake. Beautiful to wake up right beside such a gorgeous lake!

Great public toilet and recycling units. Right by the lake. Nice spot but the road noise is constant. There is lots of room, 5 campers last night but all spread out with lots of space between them.

Beautiful spot to camp for free. You can park right next to the reservoir. It is really easy to reach also with big campers. If you are into fishing, this can be done here too. Although the campsite was next to the state highway the traffic noise wasn't too loud. Unfortunately, the public toilets were closed when we arrived. Still we had a great time here.
