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.

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!
