This is a great property with tons of space and a cozy bar. It is free or a donation if you don't need power. We were there over Christmas so it was very quiet and some of the facilities were out of order.

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.
