2 parking spots(not big) right infront of the bathrooms, so everybody walks by your van to go there. Overall the atmoshpere didn't seem friendly twoards travellers -one tiny shop on the corner really unfriendly aswell. Stayed the night, but only for the newchum beach that's nearby, seemed like just another nice beach(if you've been around). The walk there tho, that was worth it. Otherwise toilets are new and clean and open all night. Beach is beautiful aswell. Overall quiet town, part from the scary firefighter alarm that went off at night and scared the hell out of us thinking it might be a tsunami warning. it is right behind the toilets. Good tip for the future that we found out from the firefighters *tsunami warning is 1 constant nonstop not wavy alarm while the firefighter one is wavy.



New toilets under construction next to parking on the asphalt. Old toilets not the best. Beach looked quite delicious and can see how it's a good spot. We just chose to move on because it felt like we were parallel parked in town at the end of a caul de sac with construction going on next to us even though the beach was just down the steps.



Great freecamp but only 2 spots for small campervan (max 5m per spot), can be quickly full. 24h toilet with indoor cold shower, cleanliness ok.
