This campsite was perfect for what we needed. Only an hour from Wanaka, good nightly rates, quiet enough. No complaints here!
We passed Cameron Flat camp site but wanted to drive a bit longer. We then stopped here for the night. Looks less nice than Cameron flat I’d say. A basic rest area along the road. Nothing charming. Long drop toilets. Sandfly apocalypse, forget to have dinner or a beer outside, this was serious sandfly madness. Ranger passed in the morning to check payments.
Nice little spot for the night, apocalyptic sandflies though and very busy
In the middle of no where but fine for one night. Toilets are basic, no soap. Lovely views
Pretty nice area. Small and quiet. Being a DOC site you have to fill in a form so dont forget a pen and correct change (learn from our mistake). Beautiful frost on the grass and plants surrounding in the morning.
Good spot but gets full quickly. Toilets need a torch pretty much day and night.
Nice place but awful lot of sandflies. Beautiful scenery.
Hundreds of sandflies so don't forget your insect repellent. Clean flush toilets, water supply and roofed picnic area.
Nice views on mountains. Good facilities. Possibilities to make a fire.
Nice little place, with great view over to the valley, nice arrangement and next to a river. Great stop on route to the West Coast.
Nice quiet camp spot just off the road along Haast Pass about halfway between Wanaka and West Coast. Not alot of room, but beautiful none the less. Pristine creek just next to the camp running into the main river. Just nice.
Perfect spot for an overnight stay. Level ground and very easy to find. It is quite close to road so you will get a little bit of noise from cars passing by but not a big issue as not many cars in the winter.
Beautiful scenery, comparably big area, water but no drinking water, toilet should flush but they don't - therefore very dirty and smelly. I hope that council will do something from the money they get and fix WC's.
Really comfortable campground with nice places for the tent and clean bathrooms. Near the river to wake up and swim.
DOC campground. $6 per person. Toilets clean but no drinking water. Beside a river. Good for an overnight stop. Can't complain.
Nice clean camp spot, was a little overcast when we were there so can't comment too much on the scenery. Watch out for the sandflies.
Toilets were very dirty. Also need some lighting around the facilities area and some bins! Wouldn't stay again.
Amazing views, but not many flat spots and just a gravel car park. Good for a quick overnight stop.
We stopped for one night, not far from the road but little traffic at night. Toilets ok but dirty, thanks to dirty people messing them up. Nice grassy areas, cool little walk among the ferns in the forest along the river, went for a dip too. Watch out as this area is sandfly infested. Amazing views.
Easy to find but very small camping ground. The view from the river is nice but not really suitable to swim. We were there in early February and the sandflies were eating us. There was no toilet paper, no rubbish bins and the few toilets were not functioning properly. One of the worse DOC sites we used.
We had great weather, it's a beautiful spot and the river was nice for swimming in the right conditions. Large, flat grassy site, quite a few picnic tables and clean flush toilets.
Beautiful to wake up here! Only 2minutes drive to the touristy Thunder Creek Falls. Facilities okay. Would give 10 if it wasn't for the sandflies.
Nice place to stop for an overnight stay but the toilets were not very clean.
Brilliant campsite for tents. Limited room for vehicles. Magnificent view of Mt Hooker down the valley. Sandflies are no worse than you would expect in South Westland. Flush toilets and a cooking shelter.
Very quiet (the main road is near but traffic stops early has the gates close at the slip). Beatiful area and surroundings. Toilets are ok but no showers. There is a water tap. Nice forest walk starting in the park with access to a small river.
Best quick stop we had. Overnight with two quick walks evening and morning. Just a beautiful valley and so quiet. Provision of some solar showers would improve this site as it's so close to the river water supply (DOC).
Only toilet and water BUT very quiet and very nice places. Only $6 per person.
Beautiful location with spectacular views to Mt Hooker, however, the sandflies are horrible.

Dusty marking spots, drinking water available.

OK, clean and tidy.
Only stayed one night. Nice enough although no showers and the toliets were not very clean.
$12 - good value, toilets ok, only difference is no power.
Nice location, great views, toilets, water, DoC info boards.
Next to bridge. Drinking water available. Nice spot with lots of space.
Great view from campsite located above SH6, beware of sandflies though!
