Easy to find as there are two signs on the way, gate was closed but not locked. We arrived at night so was hard to see. No descriptive signs anywhere as it's basically just a paddock owned by the council. There are a few sheds on the property and the small white one on the right is a toilet block. Toilets were very clean. The neighbour came over and dropped off some sheep so beware of sheep poo. Overall great place to stop over :)

Not much to fault really, big grass area to park and pitch on. Flushing toilets and running water. Water is needs to be treated though. All round pretty good considering it's free.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
An interesting camping spot in sleepy Apiti. The spacious site was filled with sheep so I wouldn't recommend camping here unless your staying in a vehicle. Some of the nicest toilets we've seen, however the water supply was a bit patchy and the taps didn't run. Refreshing spot though with a field of friendly cows next door. No sign of a designated camp fire spot and picnic bench was broken but would recommend if your looking for somewhere quiet.
