This is a gorgeous campsite, right on the shores of the lake. The amenities were clean with flushing toilets. Lovely big communal undercover areas. Mowed grassy and flat camping areas. DOC Campsite, so cost $13 per person, per night.

Excellent doc campsite. Included in the campervan pass and has really good facilities. Flushing toilets, with soap and tp. Even a solar shower but we didn't use so not sure how well it worked. They also have rubbish and recycling bins. One of the best equipped DOC sites we stayed in at this price.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Nice clean toilets. Great place to set up overnight.
We stAyed at this DOC site after reading reviews. Not a massive site, but enough space for choice of spots. Lake itself is nice with mountain backdrop. 10mins from Hokitika. Limited toilet facilities only.
Great place with plenty of space. Nice sunset. Bellbird singing in the early morning
Pretty basic campsite but all we needed with our self-contained van. Flushing toilets! Water! A beautiful walk to the lake. Bugs galore, but they were at every campsite we stayed at.
An amazing campsite if you are lucky enough to be here on a fine early morning!! Took probably the best photos of our trip as the lake was dark and glass and acted like an enormous mirror. 10/10 would stay again.
Really nice spot to camp. Sunrise over the lake was beautiful. Seeing the Weka birds roaming the campsite was cute- we even saw chicks! Clean toilets and lots of room.
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 😍
