We tried our luck here but at 7pm no chance at all to get a free spot. The next day we checked earlier and it was the same already. You need to be very early to get a free spot here even though there were quite a few. There are toilets a little bit of walk down the park, which close at night. We weren't too sad to leave though as the sulphur smell here was really bad. As it was super packed, there was a security lady who send us to the carpark of the Sudima Hotel down the road which isn't an official freedom campsite though!



Tried 3pm on a Friday and no luck. People parked like pricks too and smelt pretty rough



Smelled way too horrible to stay for the night.
