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.

Quiet nice campground direct to the lake. Clean compost toilet.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 79 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Not quite as nice as nearby Ash Pit road campsite. But it's smaller with more nooks and crannies in amoungst the trees, if that sort of thing takes your fancy. It seems to be well maintained over summer, but less so in the off season.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.

Smaller campsite than Ash Pit Road - you can walk between the two. This one is near the road so there is traffic noise when it is busy. There are several areas for camping surrounded by trees which do give shelter. Boat launching is not as easy as the Ash Pit Road site.
Lovely clean campsite next to a beautiful lake. Friendly volunteer came to take payment. Very quiet, great location for geothermal attractions. We had a quick dip in the lake while the sun set :-)
Nice lake, close to main road but cannot hear the traffic.
Poorly maintained...a lot of evidence of vandalism. Could be a very nice place but needs help. Rubbish piled high.
Poorly signposted, full rubbish bins (seemed they had not been emptied in a long time). Honesty box for payment smashed. Overall it seemed poorly maintained.
Too many sandflies.
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 😍
