Plenty of space to stay on river flats surrounded by native bush and only 30 minutes drive from Wellington City. Lots of nearby walks including beautiful (and brisk) river swims.

Have a chat to the ranger to get permission to light a campfire on the riverbank - an amazing way to spent the evening under the stars!

Beautiful park with plenty of choice as to where to camp. The ranger comes around each evening to collect camping fees. At $8 per adults it’s great value. Toilets and cooking areas are adequate. There are no showers. Good swimming holes nearby. Very happy to stay again.

Great location with lots of good walks to do too. Facilities are excellent and ranger did great job of keeping up with the large number of people staying over Christmas. Pleased to see recycling facilities too. Very picturesque spot and so well laid out, you could all feel like you had your own space. Highly recommended.

Toilets are flush but not the cleanest, massive place, good for privacy, however very open so not much shelter when it’s windy & it gets VERY windy. good walks near by, ranger is very friendly, overall good place
