Best freedom camping site so far on our trip. Very quiet and great views of Mt Cook.
Magic. The place is incredible. Has a unbelievable view on the shores of Pukaki. In midsummer had only seven more campervans. Absolutely fantastic. Places like this justify the entire road trip.

Amazing spot to park up! One of our favourites and a great location if going to Mount Cook the next day, fellow campers landed a massive salmon during the day in the canals so good for fishers as well. Was non-self-contained and got away with no issues so can't complain :)
Great place but its free, so it attracts allsorts. We settled in to a lovely spot and had a wonderful evening by the lake, sharing the lakefront with about 10 other campervans, all spread out evenly 20 metres or so apart. Then at dusk the cars arrived - 8 in total. 6 of them parked within 5m of us in a tight circle and made their dinner, chatted and opened and closed car doors until well past midnight, almost within arms reach. And when you are freedom camping there is pretty much nothing you can do about selfish assholes, except move on.

What a view to wake up to. Great spot, ultimate free camping spot. NO facilities. Loved it
Freedom camping at it's best, we were all alone by the lake. Heard a few cars on the road in the morning but not early. Fabulous views. As other reviewers have said, anywhere from the turn off along the lake to the power station. We loved it as fully self contained as no facilities.
Quiet place with perfect scenery!!!
Just a little bit hard to find.
Nice view and quite place to stay for overnight. Plenty of space for csmpervan parking.
1st don’t go past powerlines. Camp any where from turn off to powerlines.
This place was magical, this will be your postcard camping photo. The scenery is unforgettable. Free camping so make sure u take all your rubbish cigarette butts!!with you. Loved it will be back.
Amazing freedom camping spot, we stayed 2 nights in different places, the 1st slightly more secluded than the 2nd but neither busy! Great views accross the lake to mount cook.
My husband and I are having a hard time understanding how every spot so far reccomended gets better and better. This was more crowded than most but still breathtaking and quiet. Another must.
Stayed 1 night, nice views, closer to lake, windy
Such a stunning spot. Beautiful and quiet. Quite a few spots to chose from. Lovely for sunset and sunrise. Must be in a self contained vehicle.
