Absolutely beautiful place to stay. The wind kicked up the water & it made it sound like the beach.
A little tight getting out of & it got real popular so get there early.

Double check WikiCamp as people reported that they were fined $200.

We parked a bit north of the road in a proper free self-contained site.

Very much a gem! Super quiet and so so beautiful. It’s right off the road but we never even heard cars go by if they even did.

We pulled over in this general region (I think it was this spot) and it was BEAUTIFUL. No facilities and quite a few sand flies. Perfect for self contained vehicles. We actually used the toilets before leaving town and had no issue.

Great location and views of the lake. Near to Queenstown but nice and quiet.

Right on the waters edge, with a beautiful view. Few sandflies.

There is space for 3 campers. Even though it is pretty close to the street, it was quiet, because there is not much traffic. No facilities at all. We liked this beautiful place and would recommend it.
