Added to WikiCamps today after popping in. Currently closed to vehicles due to COVID-19, but not to walking. Great spot. Nice walk to the turquoise waters of the river. Plenty of green space, info signs, walks and loos. This would make an epic campground, free, donation or paid. Keep it clean everyone.
