Fair amount of space if you drive on up the track. Fine for overnight especially if self contained. Convenient for the ferry. You need the right money for the honesty box.

Great campsite! Found this after all the places in and around Wellington were full. Lovely area with plenty of space. Flush toilets were clean, spacious and had running cold water as well as soap. Additional potable water tap outside. Note that the fees envelopes and box are next to the toilet block.

Best place for travellers which needs a cheap place to stay before or after the interislander ferry.
I staid there for 2 nights and took the train (8.50$ each way/30 Min.) to visit Wellington.
Campground fee is 8$ and had flushing toilets and water.

Good basic camp site. There was only about 4 others when I stayed so plenty of space. Toilets and water. Can't get vehicle out after gates close(6pm) and nearest shops are about 5km. Although there is a train station about 1km away that comes hourly till ?pm

Good campsite - basic but nice
8$pp per night
Clean fairly new toilet block plus drinking water right next to main area of campsite (no walk)
Lots of yummy blackberries to pick!
No shower or hot water but stream v nearby
Can do walks from campsite but over the stream so shoes will get wet!
Crickets were very noisy which can’t be helped !
Park ranger came daily about 8
Some of the area is a bit sloped/ not shaded. Wasn’t too busy when we stayed which meant only 2 toilets was fine but can imagine if when near capacity (says can fit 150 not quite sure how) could feel a bit cramped
Overall v good value and only half an hour into wellington /theferry

There is some misinformation on this app but on 24th Jan 2019 it cost us $8pp in the honesty box and the gates were open when we arrived after 11pm. Gravelled carparks, fields for tents and decent toilets in a beautiful bush setting. A great option for camping not far from Wellington City. Will stay again!

Awesome camp ground with honesty box alot of travellers that do not use public toilet and just squat which is not fair on others and have the cheek to leave there wipes there. The toilets here were clean and just a pleasant spot
