Comments
This is a very popular camp site, which is host to various festivals.  The width of the river at this site is ideal for all manner of water sports, and most of the activities are centered around the river and the deck area.  The campsite would benefit greatly if there was electricity supplied to the sites, as this puts many campers off from coming here.
