Lovely quiet spot by the creek, campsites were sheltered and felt remote. Easy access to the great Helecopter Hill walk with stunning views. More walks around the area too. Toilets werent great. Shelter was nice enough. Great if you dont need the amenities and want to feel secluded.

Nice and quiet site, used a small shaded area, and the Manuka trees were in flower so outside smelt great. Not so the toilet! Shame.
Also a lot of wasps, just something to be aware of.

Really enjoyed this site. Lots of spots to tuck your tent or camper van into. Wasn't crowded when I was there so toilet and cooking area were in good nick and clean. Easy access to both the hiking trails and Castle Hill make this spot top notch for those keen on exploring the outdoors. Great price for the location and site.

We spent 10 days here over xmas break...we love it! Camped in tent by stream, kids played and we relaxed! Beautiful beech forest and lots of birds...also LOTS OF SANDFLIES!!!! Go prepared! Great base to get to castle hill or cave stream. Definitely recommend!

Nice wooded campground next to a small stream. Easy access. Not so much space for a van but would be great with a tent.
