Lovely, natural and very peaceful campsite that is easy to find. We arrived on a Saturday night and there was only 2 other camps there - the area is spacious and has naturally divided areas for privacy. There is a lovely, clean stream that is nice for a dip in hot weather. The drop toilet is also well maintained. The sun drops behind the hill early evening in summer, so the campsite is shaded.

This is a great place to camp in the Pureora Forest, have been going there on and off for the past 30 years. There are 3 campsites that make up this camping ground, and have fire places, longdrop toilets, there are no showers, but a nice stream beside the camp ground for water supply or bathing. Nice to see and hear the native birds during the day and Moreporks at night. A good bush walk called the Rimu Walk well worth doing, only takes about 30 mins, also further up the road from the camp is a walk to the "centre of the north island" http://www.waymarking.com/waymarks/WM6BD1_Centre_of_the_North_Island_New_Zealand........
