I stayed here for one night with my bicycle and just after dark one of the sketchy types walking around tried to take it. Keep that in mind if you plan on staying here. You're probably fine in a van or car but think twice if you're in a tent like me. I "slept" with one eye open It's a beautiful spot with clean toilets, the city did a good job. Shame it's flooded with longtermers at the moment.



A friend at the I-site has warned us away from here. This has become a homeless encampment, and the council is trying to clear it out. There is no shortage of freedom camping in this town; best to choose elsewhere.



Infested with a homeless encampment. Looked like LA. We drove by. Read the Google reviews.
