One of the best unpowered spots we've camped at so far! River next to you, opportunities to make a fire, flushing toilets, anything you need. Showers available at the hotel for four dollars (donation for campground says should be minimum five dollars, considering how cheap that is, absolutely reasonable price for shower).
Would stay again!

A lot of space for the tent and picnic area, a lot of trails and a beautiful bridge with a tunnel. Fruit trees. Fires allowed.

A great place for camping, We have visited twice in the last month for long weekends. and cannot fault the place. It is a nice basic campsite in a fantastic location. Worth more than the $5 donation they request from campers.

Nice camping area. Some space near trees otherwise large open grass field for 30+ campers. Please donate. Camp site run by locals to support community activities. Friendly Nelson Hotel pub a quick walk up to main street and cold beer. Beautiful Callhoughn trail from camp ground with great vistas.

Beautiful area, flushing toilets and near walks for free! You could use BBQs as well for just $2. Make sure you make a donation!

By donation campground inside little town. One of our favourite sites during our trip. Right on a creek set for swimming with warm weather. Small rock face to jump into water from. Little cave across stream to explore. And a little zip line there as well! Large area, some coverage. Nice full toilet facility. Large sink for dishes, etc. rubbish/recycling bins. Don't think directions were quite right (our first attempt at finding took us down a dirt road with a sign marked "Try Again Rd", the correct turn-off is a little ways south of that). No one else there in April. Beautiful place to stay, highly recommended!
