Stayed here on the weekend, was full from about 7pm. Hundreds of cars with their boats started parking on the grassy area from about 5am so that was an early wake up call! Toilets were fine, about a two minute walk away and closed at 20.30pm. Drinking water at the dump point nearby. An okay spot overall, thanks council!



Be Warned: we arrived late here after both the other SC camp areas at this marina turned out to not exist. When we arrived all of the designated spots were full but also there were a lot of other campers set up on the grass and asphalt, some looked like they had been camped here a long time so we thought it would be safe to stay the night. We were wrong, we got a fine. Very fair, we were outside the designated area. But no one else, apart from the man next to us was fined. The security man explained everyone else were locals known to the council so are allowed to break the rules. So be careful, don't think you'll be treated like everyone else if you're not from the area



Space for 8 vehicles but only 7 could fit due to due RVs not keeping in tight to one another. Flushing toilets a 2 minute walk across an unlit park, clean with soap and toilet roll-still open at 20:45pm
