This is the place to stay. Short drive to town, amazing scenery, friendly neighbours, great activities, FREE Herbs, fully equipped kitchen, FREE hot showers with amazing pressure. If you're looking for a great place to stay for a fair price, look no further.

Beautiful spot on edge of wildlife-filled lake. Very friendly welcome from owners, keen to help us have a great time. Running the place for 6 months now, suspect this place will get better and better. Large campsite interesting to walk around and canoe/lifejackets available to use for free. $25nz for 2 with a campervan pretty standard price. Only minor downside is an aging toilet / shower block but clean and functional. Would recommend.

Nice spot at the lake. Very friendly owners which are not all about the money. They just like having people staying there. Nothing fancy but clean. Gave me a discount because I was only with a bicycle.

Definitely worth the money for non-power campsite, just $11 per person. Cheap compared with other campsites around. Including good view of the lake. Amenities, kitchen has all you need. Toilets are clean. Also you can rent a canoe for only $5. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Plenty of space, recommended for family camping. I have deducted one point because of the lukewarm shower in the evening. It has a hot shower only in the morning.

Absolutely outstanding. We have been staying here every year for 5 years and we wouldn't have it any other way. Helen and Bryan are kind, genuine hosts' who can't do enough for you to make your stay an enjoyable one. Immaculate facilities, stunningly well kept grounds and surroundings. Friendly, family atmosphere - no riff raff (a must when you have a young family) they even light the campfire for children on an evening to roast marshmallows. Not to mention the stunning lake to explore via the kayaks for hire....I could go on and on about the many things we love about this place - Would highly recommend to all ( but not to too many because it's wanganuis best kept secret and I hope it stays that way!!!)
