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

Such a beautiful DOC campsite that allows dogs. Right on the shores of lake Wanaka - a place to take a refreshing dip as there are no showers. Well maintained and of course, worth the $8pp! You do need to book lines before hand though as there isn’t any phone signal out there.

Amazing spot, plenty of places to camp with vans or tents! Toilets are good, nice cooking and washing facilities. Epic info on the history of the spot too! $8 pp per night. Gorgeous views of the lake and snow capped mountains! Last spot with sandflies if you are heading back east!

We just stopped for 1 night and it rained the whole time so we didn’t really explore. Ok toilets and a cooking shelter. Right by the lake so I imagine in nice weather it would be lovely. Sandflys as ever!

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.
