It's not a bad place to stay over night. Just off the road but not much traffic going past. No ammenaties but that didn't matter.

Nice spot although close to the main highway so you hear every car pas by @100kph. Not much to do. Only suitable for self contained. Occasional idiots beeping as they drive by. But hey, it's a free site, so enjoy it for what it is and don't expect it to be a Top 10 park. Would I stay again? Yep.

We think it is a really nice place. Yes, it's right next to the street, but it's not very busy. There are even some trees in between and on the other side a beautiful pond. No facilities. Probably space for about 6 - 8 campers. No sandflies.

Parking area on grassy area next to main road. Handy if travelling across country, no facilities but one of the few free sites in the area. Quiet despite being just off the main road and lovely sunrise over a small pond

This spot shouldn't really be on here. You would only stay if you were in desperate need of an hour of sleep before driving off. The site is a narrow strip of land just off the road with no signage and no facilities/water/dump station. There is no privacy. It may as well be an off road shoulder. You could stay there if desperate but the highway is only a couple of metres away. It is grassed and flat but it is not a good camp-site. Also it is by a small dam /Lake... I suspect mozzies could be an issue.
