Amazing (for the price)! This is a backpacker place. Small cabins ($20pp) or camping $10pp. They have clean, hot showers, a kitchen (with power outlets), laundry facilities ($2wash/$2 dry), and a bar. What more could you ask for? If you're looking for 5*, keep looking, but if you are a backpacker on a budget, this is the place for you! (Some people do live in cabins and work in the morning, but there is a grassy lot across the street if you really need it). Friendly staff, friendly residents, and really cool bar!!
This is such a funky space opposite the Historic Empire Hotel!!! New bathrooms that are spotless with great hot water and new shower. Kitchen is large and well equipped. The camping area is small but beside a small lake and the town is round the corner. Friendly pub and good food.. A great find....

Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 100 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Awful place! The lady at the hotel was only interested in grabbing our 20 dollars. It's basically the hotel's backyard, with old, dirty and shabby facilities. Rubbish bins full up so rubbish on the floor. No curtains/door in the shower. Cheap price and cheap facilities. Avoid this place.
The only camping map where each location is approved by every regional council in NZ. So if it shows on the map, you’re allowed to stay.

The camping is the worst I have ever spent a night at (2 out of 10). $20 for 1 person with a campervan is too much. The toilet was dirty and couldn't be locked. The bar was full of character 10 out of 10. The owner very friendly and the best food I had in New Zealand (10 out of 10). No info on the hotel itself because I camped. But camp here only if no other options are available.
An unexpected, but really pleasant, campground. Nice new hot showers, excellent price. Laundry needs more care. Overall: satisfaction. BTW: the Historic Empire Hotel was really something, a real treasure.

Arrived late on a Sunday proprietor told us to park across the road from his pub for free in lieu of purchasing a drink which we did. Also was invited for their Sunday Roast which was 3 course for a total price of $20. Meal was fabulous. Both husband and wife very friendly and highly recommend for all campers.
