Very beautiful campsite on the shores of Lake Walker. The grounds as such are not very intimate, but the users are obviously not there to party, so it remains very peaceful. The view of the lake, with access to the beach, makes the experience even more pleasant. The pitches for the tents are not serviced, but it is still possible to access drinking water through the reception. The sanitary blocks are accessible free of charge and are well maintained. I will definitely go back!
