Great spot, loved the comical Weka's chasing you around for food, wouldn't eat apples but loved sausages as it turned out!
It was wet and miserable when we stayed so didn't get much opportunity to discover more. Good facilities.

Lovely tidy and clean. There were wekas (not Kiwi lol) but as per usual if you keep your camp tidy it's all good! We stayed here during a bit of bad weather and the camp was very sheltered. The surrounding roads were blocked by fallen trees in the morning but the camp was safe even in our tent!

Great spot to stay with clean toilets, sink and water access. There are great walks departing from the campground and a nice river we’re you can look for gold ;)

No drinking water but besides that it's really nice. Sinks to do dishes, soap in toilets and lots of kiwis. They will steal your food so look out. Very recommended campsite!

Can't fault this site. Nice walks from the site and really peaceful Toilets are really clean and decent facilities. Some of the local gold diggers are a bit rude but that's expected. (I was just interested in how things go on around that place).
