Great spot is a little close to the motorway but as most newer motor homes are so well insulated isn't a major issues and fairley quiet at night, a great short stop over location

Great place, highly recommend for a night or two. Some hwy noise but this is more than compensated by tranquility of the river. Plenty of room for a dozen or more vans and motorhomes. Toilets open all night. We would definitely go back. Weekends could have waterskiers as there is a boat ramp on the rivers edge.

Great place. As described. Beautiful outlook and toilets dated but neat and functional. Still can't believe you can camp for free here. Can hear road noise but not a problem.
Beautiful, well kept camping spot with clean toilets. Very basic.
The views are great. However it is right next to the motorway. Worth it though.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Absolutely free. Excelent spot with a great view of the lake. Park under the trees and enjoy the view. Toilet clean and very close, no light. Noise from the near road not so bad. No problems with insects for us. Super recommended
+ nice scenery
+ toilets right next to it, pretty clean
+ lots of space
- right next to the road, but the noise didn’t disturb our sleep
Good place to stay for a night.
We spent a night here to be close to Hobbiton the next morning. Very muddy as it had been raining, toilets were clean, couldn’t find fresh water. If it raining don’t park under the trees, the drip of them on the camper is unbearable! Haha
Beautiful view of the river. Great spaces for our motorhome.
Great free spot with lots of room. Beautiful vista, but very noisy. Thought it would be quieter later into the evening, but noise levels remained steady.

Nice location but obviously a hot spot for hooligans to taunt campers! Car full of teens beeped continuously to wake us up then proceeded to shout things and go round the camper with a chainsaw running! Didn't feel safe at all.
Great free spot overlooking the lake. Fairly hidden from the SH1, can still softly hear the highway but park up under the trees and overlook the lake and boat ramp which isn't utilised often.
Lovely spot next to a lake. Very easy to access (it's right next to the highway). Good place to spend the night when travelling towards Hamilton or Rotorua. No facilities except toilets.
