Small nice spot for one night, portaloos ok. Traffic quite noisy but good for one night on the way to Picton. Bins provided a shame they aren't always used.



Next to a beautiful lake, but also next to the road. It's not that big, maybe room for 10 cars ? Depending on the size. The drop toilet is clean and not smelly :)

Couple of car parks with picnic tables. Chemical portaloo which was pretty clean. Had a good night here.
