Fabulous fabulous right on the lake. Just one drop toilet. No water.
You need to arrive here early to get a decent spot.
The place is really crowded and has only one really basic toilet which has no toilet paper! So remember that.
Other than that the view over Taupo Lake is beautiful.

Great views but super busy place!
View is great. Large site makes it crowded. Toilet is non-flush. No toilet paper.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Pretty good spot. Plenty of room. Ocean/wind can be loud but we found it soothing. 1 non-flushing toilet but not smelly.
LOVELY spot with beautofil view of the lake. We brought own toilet paper just in case but not necessary. Super busy but also loads of space. Stayed here a few days and loved it.
Great little spot but very popular all year around. Probably the busiest place we’ve stayed in the last month! Lovely views over the lake, walks along the lakeside but only one toilet. Probably best to use your own if possible! Recommend
We had a great stay at the reserve. It’s a beautiful area right on the lake with a great morning view! There is a five mile walk right on the park that you stay which is clean and full of life. Definitely recommended as an evening stop on your way!
Excellent spot right on the lake. Great for the dogs. Get there early it gets a bit cramed.
We arrived Easter Thursday with our caravan and stayed over night. The place was absolutely full of mainly camper vans.
Ten thousand people and only one long drop toilet. As we’re in our mid 70’s, it was most ‘convenient’ pardon the pun, to park by the only bog in town. Then when we could see the queue had stopped temporally, we were in like Flynn. We do have an onboard toilet but poo still smells like poo! Ugh.
The long drop was very clean and no smell. Do NOT forget to take paper or you’ll wind up like Robinson Crusoe and opt for a finger, haaa ha.
It was a very pleasant place to stay, awesome views and no cost, a pensioners dream come true.
Large parking area by lake, space for loads of vans. Beach good for swimming. Toilet, in reasonable condition.
Lovely spot to watch the sun go down over the lake.
Another great spot right by the lake. Spectacular sunset! Close to town and huge area to camp.
Only one toilet that we could see and take your own toilet paper but otherwise it is an awesome spot :)
Gorgeous spot right on the lake! Peaceful and special. Very large area but lots of vans, started filling up in the evening. One clean drop toilet.
Great location to get to hikes in the morning.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
