So beautiful and quiet! The site is level and cheap! We paid $12 for powered site, it says you need to be there by 4pm but they had an after hrs kiosk to put your money in so you can get there later. You need to back up to the power boxes so other people can use them too. It was very busy so don't get there too late if you want power otherwise it was a big spot so you will still find room. Toilets were open all night and nice and clean.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 79 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Sept 19. Does exactly what it says on the tin. It's a car park with some power stations available if required. $12 for powered when we were there and they work on an honesty system (even providing envelopes for posting the cash). Clean toilet available 24 hours. Sadly the museum was closed as it' looked quirkily interesting. Good staging point for Matamata.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.

Stayed two nights, each night 6$, really friendly people working at the museum and public toilets were good! Thank you!

Stopped here one night heading for Hobbiton. Great site, clean & quiet. $6 non power $12 powered, clean toilets open all night, fresh clean water supply. We both really liked this site, spoke to staff in the morning who are enlarging the site, really helpful. Stay here for a relaxing night. Top marks!!
Before heading to Hobbiton, we stayed here for a night in one of the eight powered sites for a really reasonable amount of money (can't recall the actual value we paid). We had access to a very clear public toilet, and almost nobody was spending the night there, so we basically had the (public) place for ourselves.
6 $ for one night
The Public toilets are clean.
Good location. Honour system payment. Get in early (before 4pm) to secure a spot. No showers, suitable bathroom and a picnic area. Would recommend.
$12 flat rate for a powered vehicle is a bargain, but be cautious as there is only room for a maximum of 6 powered vehicles. The toilets were open all night but no showers. Walked the grounds of Firth Tower Museum for free the next day, a very beautiful place to check out.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
