There are four carparks right next to each other in this free camp. The traffic on the nearby road was very noisy, especially trucks slowing down and accelerating for the roundabout. Cars entered the car park until 2 am. No dump station.

Only 4 available lots (demarcated by the blue lines). Lots are small, not suitable for large campervans. Campervans are parked side by side. If you value privacy, this is too close for comfort.

It’s only 4 spots but it’s the perfect location! 10min walk to the center, where you can find a toilet at the iSite!
Only self contained vehicles! Police comes and checks the stickers!

Functional place. Close to city centre, directly at the shore (but not scenic), not too loud. At the evening our self containment certificate was controlled by the authorities. They even wanted to see my paper certificate, the sticker on the car was not enough.

Four places available. Its ok, not too loud beside the street but no toilet/water or anything. So nice to stay for one night.
