yonatan kedem 3 / 5

Driving 3-4 kilometers off the main road to discover that you need to pay more than 20€ (van parking + electricity) for dirty stink shower's and toilets made me a bit disapp

inted. I recommend it only if you really need parking with electricity and couldn't find other camping sites.
