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!

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

Nice place, close to Wellington, close to short walks, the best ranger.

Excellent location on the river! We had a bonfire at night and enjoyed swimming in the river during the day. Clean toilets, kitchen, BBQ grills and drinking water station. No showers.

We were here just after Christmas and the place had a great vibe. The lower site is definitely preferred although it has no power sites and not very level, but it’s great fun finding your own special spot. It’s great to have a campsite like this where you can’t book and it’s so big that you can just show up when the weather looks good.

No soul, it's just big. Nothing else, nothing more. Many locals I guess and much music playing. Not what we expected from a national park.

Great campsite for only $6 per person, per night. Place for hundreds or maybe thousand campers..so huge and super well maintained. Windy as everywhere. You will find here everything you need.

Awesome place. Clean, lots of places to camp, lots of walks and places to bike, great BBQ areas, and the ranger is helpful. Easy to find and cheap. Can have fires on riverbed and awesome areas to swim and rocks to jump off.
