Lots of space. Tall trees shaded most of the site in April. Longdrops toilets well built. Not water when we went. Dirt bikes went past a couple of times.
Very happy to fine this beautiful spot! Lovely spread out camp ground along the lake front. Lots of well maintained clean toilets. Ideal safe swimming, paddling etc for families to enjoy.
Big campsite- plenty of space right down to the lake.
The management have shifted between different departments the last couple of years and hence the quality have been boubious.
This summer a DOC manager have been present and have corrected many missings.
There's no kitchen or wastedeposit. Water needs boiling. Only noise is from animal-life. But still 7 out of 10. Would stay there again because of view and tranquility.
Lovely spot by the lake far from the traffic. Can find shady spots or full sun. Camp manager Pierre is really helpful and has all the answers. Lots of weekenders arrived after 7 (including some guys with a sofa on their trailer) but everyone was very chilled and quiet. Water from a tapas one power outlet. Ladies not so keen on drop toilets. Nicer feel than Brett Rd next door.
Beautiful spot, the lake is gorgeous and warm. Unfortunately there is no water supply despite the info listed.
My fav camping spot on this lake with a long name that's hard to pronounce.....Ash Pit comes into it's own over summer. Swimming, boating, fishing. Let the good times roll.
Absolutely loved this site, such a lovely spot and kept very beautifully. Lovely manager who really looked out for us in our tent in some rather windy cold spring weather! Tap water needs boiling to drink.
This is the biggest of the 3 campsites, the views over the lake are amazing, make sure you walk back to the previous campsite on the road through the track in the forest as it is teeming with birds. As for facilities, the camp is massive and has water spigots, shelters and cabins to hang your solar shower in the summer.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
