Great view, a few flat spots for parking, flushable cleanish toilets and not super busy. Mostly locals doing watersports so fairly busy and noisy during the day with loud music, wakeboarders, jetskis and speed boats. Despite the sign there were a few tents and dogs roaming free,l. Water doesn't seem swimmable but that didn't seem to bother anyone. Not much shade for parking on hot days but pretty cool setup for being free

The view was amazing. It was very quiet and toilets were very well maintained.

Such a nice place on the beautiful lake. Only people there that night on a massive field with heaps of room. Two flushable toilets. Would definitely stay there again!!!

Not well known to tourists, it is quite a good experience to have nearly only Kiwis around you. Boogie boarded with some friends on the really calm lake. Dams around it are impressive!

Great spot, very quiet and sheltered on Valentine's Day 2015, flush toilets very clean. Overlooked by some kick ass houses, no cell coverage. Small beach at North end looks great for swimming, boat ramp at South end for entertainment. Woohoo no skiing allowed mmmm peace! Dogs allowed, great parking for large vehicles. We'll be back, not as many birds as Mangakino hence a 9.
