You need to pay to stay. However it’s 20min from Queenstown and perfect place to stop with the camper and do daytrips. They have toilets and running water to wash hands. The lake and views of mountains very beautiful. They have some seating by a lot of sites. It was lovely and quiet and very handy.

This is the perfect position if you’re wanting to spend the evening in Queenstown and stop off somewhere fuss free to sleep the night. There are limited resources, however it is spacious and felt very safe. We were very far from our neighbors and there was plenty of room.

15mins from town. Lots of people here the one night I was there, but spread out in a way that doesnt feel too crowded. Water is recommended to be boiled before use. Clean bathrooms, but otherwise no other facilities. Minimal sandflies.

Cheaper if you stay more days. There was a different rate for 4 or 7 consecutive day stays.

Plenty of campsites in both sun and shade. Lake was beautiful and great for a swim or paddle boarding. Clean toilets! Awesome walks in the area. We walked to Bobs Cove in the morning and it was a great start to our day. Beautiful views and location.

Queenstown is a town you must visit while travelling through NZ. Too bad the parking is absolutely garbage and the overcrowded streets are everywhere. Luckily there is this campsite. It is a short 10 to 15 minutes drive along the coast. The site itself has a great view and we stayed there 2 nights because it was so relaxing. You have acces to a lot of walks there and even a Lord of the rings movie scene. Nice.

Large DOC campsite by the lake. Great views. Campsite itself can accomodate a lot of vans, but stretched out enough to have your own space. Close enough to Queenstown to jag a cheapie site.
DOC collect fees here even if have pass.

Not my favorite. The location was nice. The lake looked really beautiful. No cell service. The toilets weren’t great.. don’t know why you have to pay $13 p.p
