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.

Great location especially for catching the early morning ferry. Very busy spot so have to get in late afternoon especially if your a larger vehicle.

Arrived fairly late to a big spacious lakeside park. No faciliies, a bit breezy but they allow dogs and its free. Just over an hour away from the ferry terminals

We loved this spot. Plenty of room and lovely view of the lake and the ranges. Nice big trees at the end of the park. We never write dumb reviews about toils as you are supposed to be self contained. We recommend this place as a good first stop out of Wellington if you travel slow like us.

A very beautiful camping spot right on the lake. Loads of space, all pretty flat and quiet when we stayed- around 10 other campers but such a huge site we weren't cramped in. Two drop loos were very clean and had toilet paper! Also had a good covered space for eating/preparing food and plenty of rubbish bins. No water or dump station, but not a problem if you come prepared! Would definitely stay here again.

Great free spot. Nice view of lake. Went there at night after taking a late ferry which was exhausting in the dark but ok. Plenty of space.

We loved this spot. Arrived in the dark but managed to find plenty of options on flat land. Woke up to stunning views of the lake and wetlands. We didn't check out the toilets but drove around to see we had an option of parking near these as well as a covered area with a large table. We will return here and look forward to experiencing it in the summer months for some boating.

Amazing camping spot with a fantastic view! Only 2 other campervans there when we stayed. Long drops weren't the best I've seen but at least there is a toilet. So glad we camped here as it was one of the most peaceful places we stayed.
