A bird watchers paradise - grab your bino's and sit still! The Brett Road Camping Ground is situated on the shores of Lake Rerewhakaaitu. There is good swimming, fishing and walking nearby. No fires permitted any time of the year. Just down the road from the Brett Road Camping Ground.

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.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
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.
This is a nice little camp site by the river. It's well off the main road so it is a bit of a drive but there is no road noise. There are drop toilets which were fine. There are no shelters for cooking, no sinks and no lights. We did manage to find some water however it's not suitable for drinking. $6 per adult per night. I recommend this site and would return again.

Great DOC camp site on the edge of the lake. We were there over a holiday weekend. There was plenty of space of all of the large groups in tents, caravans and motorhomes. Toilets are vaulted or composting so live with the smell when its busy. Fresh water tap is near the on site wardens caravan. Great value at $5 per night per person.
Nice view, very quiet, clean toilet, water available (but quite hard to find).
First night with our van. Good place to stay, not too many people.
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 😍
