Huge grassy field not to far from the main road and all paved roads leading to it. We were one of 3 groups there so had plenty of space to ourselves! Nice toilet block but grass is quite long so if it rains everything gets wet!!

Beautiful location , big grassy field surrounded by trees. Lots of flat spots. No phone signal!! Toilets well maintained. Lots of bees and flies. Nice walkways but sadly stream was all dry when we visited. Only 4 other vans there with us and plenty of space.

Super clean bathrooms, amazing open spaces, and a cute picnic table area. Lots of little flies made it annoying to sit down and eat, so we walked and ate! But it’s much better than dealing with sandflies. Most of these were just harmless little flies. There weren’t many people there so it felt very private. Great cheap place for camping - 8$/person. Would recommend.

Delightful spot only maybe 15mins from Blenheim. Big space but lots of good little corners to tuck into. Decent toilets & not too many sandflies or mossies. Pretty quiet too.

We stayed around New Years, lots of family’s, sandflies and little shade on the big field. But the short walk to the river is lovely. No showers but the toilets are kept nice.

Beautiful big grassy field. It was empty when we were there. Very quiet and blissful! Lots of sandflies though...

Large open Green space with lots of room for campers. Quiet, just birds in the morning. About 15 kilometres outside Renwick, on paved road. $8 pp, $5 for electricity.
