The Lake Rotoroa Camping Ground is surrounded by native forest and close to the lake edge. Lots of activities to do such as mountain biking, boating, kayaking, swimming, fishing and tramping. Gravel road but easy access for campervans.
Unfortunately this is a sandfly haven, so cover up.
No fires permitted at anytime.

Cover up, sandflies. Camp site is small can fill up quickly. Great sandfly free walks in area.

We have read all the reviews complaining about sandflies and thought it can't be that bad, we tried it, and now we have to admit - it's a nightmare! The lake is beautiful, but you just can't enjoy anything here, everyone just spent the time in their cars... We have at least tried the Braeburn walk to escape the flies, which worked quite well :)
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Beautiful lake and bush walk but if self contained dont bother, there is a free one down the road, we didnt have too much of an issue with sandflys but from the other reviews i think we were lucky

Beautiful lake. Very calm place. But don't go there if you have any other choice.
We called it «sandflies paradies» and it is trully how it is.
Thousands of them wait from you.
Don't even bother. It's beautiful and much quieter than the other lakes, however the sandflies make enjoyment impossible. We cooked dinner in the car and left early the next morning. Even when they don't bite you, they are around your face in clouds :(
Very beautiful place, too many sandflies but still good!

Very beautiful place but so many sandflies it is impossible to stay.
Beautiful place, but so many sandflies it is impossible to sit out of the van.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
