Would be perfection if had dump and potable water. Has Flushing toilets in large flat green areas beside lake on river. Very clean and quiet. Loved it!

A place with lots of space. The toilets are very basic and few and have no lighting.
Because it is right next to water there are lots of small flies which can be a bit annoying. Make sure to keep your door and windows shut when lights are on when it is dark outside.

A short drive from Hobbiton

Nice cozy place. Next to the street but it's well hidden with trees so it does not bother you. Went there with a campervan and saw maybe 3 others as well. Lots of space. Toilets clean but no soap and of course no shower.

Stayed here before heading to hobbiton in the morning (about 30 mins away). Lovely location, sat and had breakfast looking over the lake, was very peaceful! Toilets were fine.

Stopped here for the first night in our campervan. Great site by lake with lots of space. Relatively busy but not totally full. Toilets perfectly fine. Helpful regular campers who helped us figure out some teething problems with our van and super close to Hobbiton!

Spacious green area next to the water. Swimming is possible in designated area. Clean toilets. No fresh water supply. Take your rubbish with you!
Great place to stay for free.

Nice location by the lake, lots of buses and school camps come here, one arrived in the morning full of school kids. Toilets are clean and area is well maintained.

28/11/18 Great stop over location, plenty of room.
Waterskiing location, also good launching place for kayaking down to the glowworm stream, and for Hobbit fans Hobbiton is close by.
Toilets, we did not find drinking water or toilet emptying but thats ok. Also take your litter home.

06/12/18 We just had to come back to this location after been told about a great kayak paddle at night. From the site turn right and paddle down the lake for about 30 mins and on the other side of the lake marked by a buoy is a stream, paddle up the stream and when dark marvel at the glow worms all along the riverbank. For those without kayaks there is a local company offering tours.

Again a quiet evening on the site, couple of locals entertaining us water skiing

Toilets on site but no fresh water or waste collection
