Great camp site by the river within a short walk to awesome, safe swimming hole. Good fishing access. Caught a trout! Will be back.

Lovely place. Clean drinking water available as well as flushing toilets. River looked swimable but not too appealing. Great free place near the mountain however a bit far off the main road.

Beautiful spot recommended to me by my son. I was the only person in the place, not surprising being winter I guess, but enjoyed the beauty, peace and quiet, and solitude. Crackling campfire, gurgling river…does it get better?

Awesome freedom campsite! Right by the river for swimming and huge big grassy sites. There are toilets but bring loo roll :)

One of the best freedom campsites we have stayed at in the North island 👌

Big FREE campground with beautiful scenic surroundings. You go through a fenced/gate property to get there. We stayed on the top camp area for one night, as the other two lower levels were quite busy. Long drops and tap available on top level (water needs to be boiled) and take your own toilet paper. The river looks like a perfect spot for a swim, if you stay long enough.
