Beautiful spot by the water! Came in super late (12.30am) and able to find a spot no problem. Quick rest before heading off on our journey. Enjoyed the animals around also!

This is a beautiful spot and we would highly recommend staying here. Toilets are basic but clean.
There is a map as you enter the park, double check this as it shows you the areas you are allowed to camp. Do not park right by the lake, this is restricted.

Great place to stay for a night. It was very busy though, as a lot of people stay longer. Can't blame them, beautiful spot. We stayed out of the designated zone because we read the sign wrong but no one accosted us. Has a toilet, no shower or drinking water. Noise was to a minimum, but boats do start up early. Water skiers. Will go back.

In november 2020..nice place to stop. Recently council has removed large trees and defined overbite parking space away from lake edge. Sign is very confusing and often not followed because of this. pitty council didnt spray grasses area for onehunga weed...prickles EVERYWHERE....poor people enjoying lake.

My first freedom camping night in NZ, so this place will always be in my heart, for many reasons. Plenty of room to park, clean toilets, beautiful views. A few mosquitos.

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.

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.

Beautiful views of the lake with well established trees. Lots of space and very quiet. Would happily stay here again.
