There is camping available for short terms stays and a flat, fenced paddock area is suitable for tents, campervans, caravans. Compost toilets and taps only (no kitchen or showers). Shelter for day picnickers. Signs regarding swimming warnings - lake water quality can be poor at times.

The country park lies within steep hill country in the hills, and includes several mostly easy walks, a wetland, an arboretum, picturesque lakes, and is alongside a DOC wildlife reserve.

There are honesty boxes around the site, please use these to keep this place rolling!

Too many sheep wandering around crapping everywhere. Lake was very dirty with rats swimming around the edges. Wasn't impressed
