Lovely spot by the water, $15 per night for two, honesty box. Clean toilets and a sink as well. Lots of permanent caravans but still managed to find a nice spot between a couple of vans.

Spot intéressant au bord de la mer très calme. Chemin de randonnée possible en bord de mer. Toilettes neuves nickel. Par contre plein de vieilles caravanes qui sont là en permanence. Ça gâche un peu la vue. Dommage. 15$ la nuitée

We like it here. New and clean toilet facilities. Beautiful view over the lake, although most nice spots were already taken by permanent caravans. Not too much organised, just as it should in the South Island!

Loved my night here as was very quiet, slept well. Has pretty old facilities, but it is low cost after all. Flush toilet and a funky old-school washing wringer over the sink! Run by locals. Many old vans permanently parked up under the trees on waterfront, most likely only used in Summer and on weekends by local fisherman. Cool playground for the kids! Nice drive in.

Quiet and nice location near the sea.
Old caravan everywhere on the best sites of course.
Small and only few places to camp or stop the campervan.
It looks like it's more for yearly fisherman who keep the caravan there than a camping
