There was no charge to stay there. The site was near a stream with trees and had good toilet facilities.

There has been an update to the domain recently. The Selwyn council maintains the camp.
Note it is now free !
But with stricter conditions note the signage at the entrance. No dogs, no horses, no fires, no motor bikes or mountain bikes and no smoking.
A nice river and good cover from the wind. Sicon maintain the toilet block and Selwyn council regularly patrols so pretty safe.

Price: free
Location: it’s okay, you’re standing in a little fore
Insects: no
Wc’s: very good, clean long drop toilet

It's okay for one night. You don't have service for mobile so it's very peaceful

What a lovely spot, nice and peaceful with plenty of space for motorhomes and tents.
The toilets are super clean and there is a sink outside as well.
The river algae is high at the moment so be careful in the river with dogs

Lush, green campsite right beside the river. Long weekend and still plenty of room. Brand new toilet block - better than my one at home!
Great spot for kids to be wild - rope swings and 'jungle' to fuel the imagination.

Cycled here and found it easy to find and I got some unreal pics in the morning of the sun rising through the long grass by the river. Trees give nice shade too.
