This is a very easy accessible campsite just off the main road heading towards Wanaka, the views over the lake are awesome.

There are picnic tables, a shelter and a boat launching area as this is a good place for water sports.

You are allowed dogs here as long as they are kept under control at all times.

No fires permitted.

Nice camp site with very pretty views of the lake. The sand flies are in abundance here so best staying in your camper for early morning/evening to avoid getting bitten! Toilets are basic but clean and a covered cooking shelter has a running tap. For those interested this site has no phone signal. A&E

This is a stunning campground on the shores of Lake Wanaka, with a pebbly beach full of driftwood. Basic toilet facilities. Its a very picturesque campground, DOC managed, cost about $8 per person per night. One of our favorite campsites in all the South Island.

Great views and some cool spots tucked away for campervans and tents. Toilet facilities, sink, and sheltered area to cook. Windy at night but that kept the bugs away, we had a ton in the morning as soon as we left a door open. Gets crowded at night but stays very quiet. Great sunset and sunrise views.

Great site, plenty of room for tents. Beach close by and view is brilliant. Basic but clean toilet facilities. Also has a sheltered area for food prep and a sink area to wash up. Next to road for accessibility. Would recommend this campsite.

Really nice campsite, best view on Wanaka lake, quiet and wild. The toilets are ok but the only sink is really small and no so practical. Be aware of the sandflies ! Ho, and the sunset is gorgeous !

The campsite is located on a small peninsula in lake Wanaka.
It has lots of niches to put your camper in and nice clean toilets. There is a small shelter for cooking.

Be prepared for lots of wind. Good side of that: no Sandflys!

All in all one of my favourite places so far.
