Nice friendly people. The area to park was only small and could fit 4 campers. Very quiet during the night but not so much in the evening. Had some great food in tavern, generous portions and would recommend all our food. Toilets only open tavern opening hours and no water supply/shower. Good location and staff helpful.

Parking lot behind the tavern. Checked with the bartender before we parked. Back is a lovely family home. They were very friendly. Toilets available during tavern hours, otherwise no amenities. Nice quite stay. Had a visit with the horses at the fence. Food at the tavern was affordable and delicious. Popular local spot

It doesn’t look like it, but it is! Ask inside the tavern for permission to park behind it. It’s great for a one night on your way between places

Great place to stay. Beautiful horses near the park. The tavern is really great and the host very nice and careful (she offers to us chips for free). The beers are really great too.
Highly recommanded !

You can stay in their backyard. Nice beer and chips (you get so much for $6 chips). Unfortunately the wifi was only for the staff. Good for staying one night if you’re passing by the area.

Camping ground situated outside a Tavern serving great food and with a pool table! Great host, very accommodating, would highly recommend.
