Excellent wide open and green spot with various spaces with trees for cover. Really pleasant ambiance, with flush toilets - old but well maintained.

Fantastic spot to spend the night. Lovely secluded area that seems to be well maintained. Lots of space! Big open field, there is also a corner that has trees and shrubs that gives you more privacy and freedom camping feel if that's what you're after. Very clean toilets. Also a play area that kids would love, which also has a very cute tree house! Worth the $10 if you're looking for a nice peaceful spot for the night.
Great spot! Clean, good flushing toilets. Heaps of room for privacy.
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!
Really good. Cheap campsite.
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 For the men one toilet and outdated/dirty urinal.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.
