14Oct18. Free for non powered but powered are available now. We stayed free. Don’t know what cost for powered.
Loads of level sites, I think all with access to water.
We stayed free as we ate in the restaurant/pub. Good food and beer. Two large TVs were playing Irish Folk videos. Not our scene but ok.
It seems like we were right under the mountains. It was cloudy when we arrived but clear first thing in the morning. Great views of the snow covered mountains.
We enjoyed it. I think we will go back when we do our next trip. Sooner the better!
Do yourself a favour and stay here. $20 for two people on a powered site. Full amenities and an Irish bar and restaurant. Did I mention the wood fireplace? Beaut gardens? Clean amenities? I would have loved to stay longer.
FREE for non powered site. Very popular, pub was a nice atmosphere, can’t go wrong. Toilets clean, shower available to pay for if required. Overall, would definitely stay again.
Nice overnight campervan park by the lake which was free for unpowered. Nice beer and dinner in the pub too! We had soup chowder and lamb roast.
Nice spacious ground, good clean bathrooms, $4 per 3min for hot water. Cozy Irish pub, very good lamb roast and cold beers. Good place to crash the night.
As for free self-contained camping it's better then perfect,clean toilets and showers 4$ .. now here's the but. So with free camping we feel obligated to eat there that night and what was served to us my grandmother would not have feed her Irish pigs honestly was disgusting and the staff gave rude comment to my wife when collecting the ( 3/4 unedible meal ) such a shame as this place would have made a *10 if it have mc Donald's food out and the staff made any effort
