Arrived close to dark and parked in the smallish carpark beside the toilets. Six other large RV style campers and little old me filled the space. I found the road quite busy and loud - it's quite close by. Have stayed in worse places though!



Lovely spot and the road is far enough away to sleep



Great spot to camp. Fishing and lil trails. Uummm. Tiolets kinda suck at their jobs. As in they flush but poop dont go down. Ive been here 2 days and I've seen others poop left in there and my own poo left behind while tiolet paper gets sucks down no prob. Walked out after morning poo not going down and had to look the cleaning lady right in the eyeballs after leaving a not so great surprise behind. (My poop)
