Beautiful spot. We're the only people there. No toilets must be SC. Flies were ok in afternoon/evening and we spent lots of time on the lake but when we woke up in morning they were everywhere so we left immediately



Beautiful spot, but no toilet and loose gravel to go down to the lake. Would only go there with 4x4

Peaceful, quiet spot - exactly what freedom camping should be!! Sadly it was raining a lot of our time here, but it was still beautiful and relaxing. We parked nestled in the trees and felt like the only ones there! A few other vans were spread about but didn't really notice. It was a very easy short gravel road to get there which is fine. And the have toilets here too which was great! Plenty of signal and just what we needed. Enjoy! Keep it clean, keep it free! Say hello on IG if you're exploring too! @CaiBurton - Travelling Illustrator
