We have been here many years ago but it was good to have a stroll a little way around it. There are a couple of paddle boats for trips across the lake and lots of other activities. A lovely place in the sunshine.

Sorry I really didn't see any camping by the lake. Mainly hotels and restaurants were on the water front. Hope you find somewhere to camp. It is a charming place but quite populated.
