Stayed in July, only 5 campers so lots of space. New amenity block with lots of clean toilets, outside showers, drinking water and outdoor sinks for washing up and plenty rubbish and recycling bins. Big playpark for kids too. Great spot would be great in summer and have a swim in the lake. Cost was $15 per adult and $7.50 per child via honesty box.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
It's only carpark at the lake beach. Price 15$pp is too high, should be for free.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Beautiful spot. We were here for a night over Easter, so it was very busy.
Pretty expensive for having nothing except toilets and rubbish bins.
toilets not the best but ok for one night. the price is 10$ pp but we paid nothing cause we arrived after 8pm and there was no donation box and no owner. so it was a good stay for us:)
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.
Very convenient for a journey while you visit Rotorua; peaceful, clean, and well organised.
