Great camping ground... plenty of space so you're not on top of one another!
Free BBQ available... bring your own cleaning equipment though, as the stuff provided hasn't been replaced in a while!

I cycled over Dyers Pass and Summit Road and this campsite was perfect to stay at before cycling onward, nice soft ground to put tent pegs into and nothing to complain about.

Very nice toilet block with four clean toilets for the women, a fountain and soap. For the men one toilet and outdated/dirty urinal. Lights at night. It's a very big area of grass, so you can pick a private place if you want to. We stayed at the lovely play ground, our kids loved it! The distance between the toilet block and play ground is a little bit big, but it was our own choice to stay there. There is some noise of traffic. The distance to Christchurch is half an hour, so a great place to visit Christchurch or on your way to the peninsula. The place is very cheap and I will recommend this place to everybody.

Lovely welcome by Grounds Lady who was mowing lawns but took time to stop while we approached in van and waited for us to drive past and gave big smile and wave. Beautiful clean toilets well stocked and smell very nice loved going to that building at night with lights. Grounds Lady spoke to us as she walked past said hope we enjoy our stay and asked if we had questions. We were invited to feel free to use a BBQ positioned down by the Playground free for visitors to the Waihora Domain we enjoyed cooking on it lovely change from small gas camp cooker - very big BBQ. Lovely clipped lawns lovely lady, lovely site. Hearing the water sprinkler in garden was soothing we loved it Ground Lady said she will turn off to stop risk to dampness to van but we said no we love it. We will be back $10 a night for lovely grounds really good look forward to shower units many campers stay long time then.
