We stopped there on the way to Fox Glacier. Close to the road but not very noisy. Good view (pasture with cows and mountains in background).
Flushing toilets were closed, other toilets were okay, but no toilet paper. All kind of bins for waste there.
Cold in the morning because there was no sun.
Close to a salmon farm where you can buy not just salmon but souvenirs and some food stuff.

Good place overall, surprisingly clean toilets for a free campervan spot! Fairly protected from the wind. Nice view over a creek and farm land with cows. Unfortunately somehow we got a rat or mouse in our car while at this location.
