Beautiful spot by the lake. One other camper joined us. So quiet and peaceful. No facilities but clean and lovely

Drove into the first camping (one with the toilets) spot which was totally jam packed so carried on to check out this place. Nice quiet spot to stay for a night or two in a self contained vehicle.

A good and quiet lakeside site. Not busy, only 1 other campa there, on a day when there were 30 tents and campervans visible across the lake at Bennett’s Road. No facilities so must be self contained.
