Brian, on this campsite in August 2017

Travelling party: Family with children, various ages

This is a very pleasant little campsite. It is in a very nice location very close to a lake with walks, water activities such as peddle boats and swimming at a sandy beach. The owners are very friendly, courteous and made one feel very welcome.
The campsite also has a very nice clean and uncrowded swimming pool. The only slight negative was the toilet facilities which were not filthy but could be slightly better. I would consider returning some time in the future and would also recommend this to a friend.
