It's only carpark at the lake beach. Price 15$pp is too high, should be for free.

Beautiful spot. We were here for a night over Easter, so it was very busy.
Pretty expensive for having nothing except toilets and rubbish bins.

Great views and location but the campsite itself is just a car park, personally think it should be free as $10 an adult to use grotty toilets and overflowing bins everywhere isn’t particularly good. There are definitely better campsites around!

We were on our way to another spot when we came across this one. Great spot if travelling with kids.

Lake Okareka was full so stayed here in early March instead. Nice situation and good for a swim from the sandy beach. Facilities as described.

A decent spot by the lake, very loud bugs in the trees but don't bite! Toilets are trashed and smelly. It's now $10 pp.
