230 Basic Camping
The camping ground isn't suited to campervans as a 100metre walk is required between the road end and the campground.

Number of tent sites – 5
Small camping ground near a river. It's a good place to stay, it's free, nothing really special here. No short walks available, only >6 hour walks.
We stayed in a camper van, although the website says camper vans are not allowed this was no problem at all.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 79 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Nice place, clean toilet, next to the river and bush.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
I would give the site a 10 for the personal experience I had there with long-time camper Fawlty.
It's a little unspectacular drive to the end of the road. But as you drive into the woods around the corner you feel like you've been in the bush forever. The river is only a short walk away and the water is safe to drink.
You can collect fiddle heads, wake up to the rooster calling out for food at your van/tent in the morning and watch the kereru sit over your head.
This was a one in a lifetime stay for me!
Basic toilet - no toilet paper.
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 😍
