HUGE domain area. Grassy, not the fattest, bumps galore. 2 long drop toilets. Lake has beautiful birdlife. Sunset was awesome at very end of domain, sunrise was beautiful on the left.

Nice large area right by the lake. What's letting it down a bit are all the permanent parked up vehicles and a pile of rubbish bags on a big heap by the toilets. Can be very windy too.

Ae marika, very peaceful spot if you park on the righthand side, disability toilets are clean. Windy at times but still an awesome place to stay. You can park right next to the lake.

Beautiful stay right by the lake with some lovely walks and lots of bird life.
Heaps of space to park up for a night (or two)
Very cold in the morning in July, so make sure you bring a blanket or three :)

We haven't camped at a prettier or more peaceful lake before. So many swans and other birds on the lake.
A unexpected bonus was that there is wi fi and cell phone coverage despite reading comments that there was none.
Heaps of room and easy flat parking right beside the lake or under the trees.

A quiet and peaceful spot. Lovely lake, awesome sunsets, brilliant for stargazing. There are two composting toilets, a large undercover eating area, plenty of rubbish bins but no water supply . You can camp lakeside at numerous spots, or beneath large trees for shade. A fantastic spot with no overnight charge.

Bit off the beaten track. Very quite only a handful campers. Adequate toilet facilities. Woke up to beautiful lake. Great for stop over off ferry.

I think this place would be lovely in the summer, loads of parking space the driveway has lots of pot holes. A very windy place as the wind comes off the Remutaka’s and builds up across the lake. Thanks

Really nice spot. Heaps of space. Wouldn't want to swim in lake. No water, clean long drop toilets. Nice little shelter area with big table.
