toilets closed around 7pm, open at 06am. it's like they ask for people to piss into the bushes, just leave the toilets open goddammit. some weird guys stay there as well or arrive late in their car, but there were like 6 other campers so we stayed. was still okay for a night, wouldn't stay there alone.
