Stayed the night, everything was fine. The toilet is open all night, so you will get random people stopping by and using it, some might stay for longer or have a meet up there but nobody came to bother us. The ranger came by around 7 am ( I woke up @7.30 because he was talking loudly with a local), but he didn't even come knock on our van or anything, we stayed until 9am. Locals will come for the playground real early aswell. Streetlights don't bother but light up enough to feel safe. If needed, would stay there again.



Drove through here, didn't feel safe. (Found 2 good places "paid" around here on WikiCamps)



There is no signs saying it is self-contained only. It looks like the non-self contained ones.
