As I’ve said before on other parts of this site, this area is busy, sometimes horrifically so. You’ll get all comers up here, camping, picnicking, swimming, diving, walking and dog walking. And plenty more besides. If it’s a hot summers day and you like a bit of calm tranquillity then avoid this place like the plague. I’ve seen over 100 cars here at one point. However come in the middle winter, on a cold day, and its beautiful and worth the effort. There are at least 4 main areas to park and I’ve not included parking on grassy verges and the smaller car parks. Normally you should get a spot here and parking is free. A note however not to block the fishing car parks 100metres and more past the counting house (house in the trees), these are private.
