Very friendly staff, reasonable sized sites, nightly campfire. Paid $35 for a powered site. Good camp kitchen. The big let down was the amenities block, reasonably clean but in fairly poor condition and the showers were very small with no shelves and nowhere dry to put towels or clothes, one of the smallest we have seen anywhere, didn't use them so no idea if there was adequate hot water and water pressure.
