Not a bad spot. First come first serve. Only 8 spots available, and a wood fire bbq onsite. Pretty peaceful location for an on the road stop off.

06Oct18. A nice little spot best suited to small campers but we managed with our 7.7m motorhome.
Full up when we were there.
Quiet enough spot. Drop loo up a bit of a rise. We know where you’re going!

There is no water other than the river which is surrounded by farmland, which makes it unsafe to drink. Water can be found in town a minute away. Despite this it's not a bad place to spend a night.

Very windy and lots of bugs but close to Pelorus Bridge and the French Pass which are both worth a stop.

Spent the night before we headed to Pelorus Bridge (only 10 minutes away). Good View of mountain and creek behind the park. Small site with one toilet. Was already nearly full.

Nice spot for one night close to the highway. It was raining a lot and we feared to get stuck, because there was a warning sign. We didn't! Drop toilet nearby and a river.
