The camping ground isn't suited to campervans as a 100metre walk is required between the road end and the campground.
Kumeti campground has a pit toilet, water from a stream and a woodfire BBQ. Please take your own wood for the BBQ.

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.
Nice place, clean toilet, next to the river and bush.
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.
