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.
8$ pp is ok for one Night. nice place but lot of sandflies. nice historic cemetery close by.
Great site, very clean, easy to find a spot, and a very beautiful spot to wake up too. Plenty of walks nearby to keep All interested
Nice and quiet campsite.

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.
A lovely, scenic area to camp. A bit noisy and busy, which is to be expected since it's the entry to the Old Ghost Road track and a stop over for people traveling through the Buller area. But cheap, with friendly wekas who like to thief your food.
Very basic camping, a lot of bugs and yucky toilet. There is a beautiful road in the mountain to get there!
Beautiful spot, easy to find, but the night we stayed there it poured with rain and was very muddy so we stayed on the gravel road, it was sheltered and quiet.
Nice place to stay for a night or two but nothing special for a camp ground. Good access to other places but prepare for mega sand flies.
Start of the Old Ghost Road bike trail. Loads of sandflies (worse than on the West Coast). Long drop toilets, large flat grassy campsites.
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 😍
