Great little camp with quite a few sites to tuck into. Sheltered from some of the wind. Lots of day visitors. Phone and tv reception patchy, comes and goes. Toilet is ok. Not full on long weekend.

Nice spot, much better without wind. Bring your own firewood,drop toilet needed some cleaning. People bringing dogs should learn how to control them. What is it with people and bottle tops, put them in your bin and take them with you, easy? Can't wait to get back under more favourable weather conditions.



Great spot stayed here over the weekend. Beautiful sunsets, Drop toilet available, nice flat sites available. There was lots of day visitors coming in and out all day which became quite noisy.
