This is a very easily accessible campsite just off the main highway. It is set in a large grassy area in the historic gold-rush town of Lyell.
There are BBQ areas, picnic tables, a shelter to cook in, please note there are NO rubbish bins here. Take the dog for a walk and explore the battery (rock crusher).
Take ALL rubbish with you - there are no rubbish bins at this site. What you take in, you must take out. PLEASE RESPECT THIS!

We didn’t stay the night here but definitely worth a stop if you are going by. Do the short walk to the creek. Cool suspended cable foot bridge. We didn’t have time for the longer walk. Would be a great free camp otherwise.

We stopped there on a rainy day and waked up surrounded by the sandflies. There were thousands.
Toilets are not clean.
The grass was so soft that we got stuck in the mud when trying to looking for a spot. Luckily the locals helped us to push our campervan. It was really sweet of them for helping us out. In the end we parked on a rocky spot.
Basic campground and close to the Main Street. There are plenty of spots for your campervan and also lots of sandflies.
Beautiful campgroud but the long drop toilets were dirty and a lot of sandflies.
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 😍
