Information

With Queenstown banning all freedom camping, this is the closest free campsite to the city.

Thirty minutes south of Queenstown, along the shores of Lake Wakatipu lies this magnificent spot. As daylight breaks, the morning fog slowly lifts off the lake and you can see Queenstown and the surrounding mountains in the distance.

Trees cover the sloped grassy parking areas starting lakeside and going up the hill 100m – enough space for 30-40 campers. After a rainfall, the camping area is very muddy and campers can easily get stuck: we assisted a couple of folks in getting out.

    Amazing campsite!

    Beautiful views, clean toilets. Only 30 minutes out of Queenstown (closet free campsite to Queenstown). I would highly recommend

    Beautiful spot!

    And free! The view is stunning. Stayed here in early July 2022 & only 2 other campers. The toilet was clean & even had the time & date it was last cleaned last (sand day). Worth a visit!

    On the shores of Lake Wakatipu, views up the lake, magnificent.

    Large area with plenty of spots to choose from. Sheltered with trees. Good clean toilets.
