McLaren Falls Reserve contains a series of camping areas dotted around a lakeside area. There's lots of short walks about too.
The park gate closes at 7:30pm in summer (daylight savings) and 5:30pm in winter. No access to park and camp areas after this time.

Excellent campsite with clean toilets and good hot showers. Only 3 campers in late September. Very friendly ranger collects camp fees ($10/person). The glow worm walk at night was worth the camp fee by itself!
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 99 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
When we first rocked up there was no one in the office, but there's a self check in and self pay machine for camping. Labelling didn't work (which is why I gave it a 9), which meant we had to seek out a ranger to clarify. The rangers do come round to make sure you've paid so don't try anything! The showers were nice once we figured out you needed a token for them (or use the disabled showers if no tokens). Was just a car park space as grass was closed off due to rain. Great staff and wonderful location. Glowworms are an added extra!
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Showers and toilets available, $10 per adult. Track to a waterfall is close by. Very spacious and away from the main road. Can pay at information centre or wait for a ranger to come by.
Absolutely stunning park! Sheep everywhere, a gorgeous waterfall, and a quick 10 minute night walk to see glow worms (included in the price of camping rather than spending $50 in Waitomo!) Would recommend!
Very, very nice park, great architecture of landscape - lake, rivers, trees and bridges.
The falls look nice but the park is the real highlight. And everything for free.
We at Rankers NZ, love to meet travellers on the road and share in some of the freedom. That's why Rankers NZ invites you to come and stay for free at our chill riverside overnight parking area in the Motueka Valley at the top of the South Island.
