Awesome view of the lake.

Orakei Korako allows overnight parking in their carpark as part of admission to Orakei Korako, however they do not have powered sites. Toilets are usually open 8am - 5pm, so it is essential that the vehicle/camper is self-contained. There is strictly no dumping of rubbish in our bins or disposal of grey water allowed.

Amazing freedom camping spot. No facilities, so you need to be self-contained, but beautiful spot where you can watch geysers across a lake, while the sun sets, and then wake up in the morning and go to Orakei Korako. Only 2 of us camping there in October.

Just a car park, but arguably the car park with the best view in New Zealand. The view over the lake to the terraces is stunning, and we sat back and watched a geyser erupt every half an hour. And we were the only people there.

Directly next to the car park, hot water flows from the ground into the lake: we swam there, though in places the bottom is so hot it's uncomfortable. I would recommend you arrive before closing time and ask them where you should swim.

Amazing place to stay on the lakeside with views of the geothermal area. Friendly owners who allow free use of WiFi. Lots of space and toilets open 8 - 5:30.

Great and beautiful place to stay for free if you have been (or going to enter) to Orakei Korako. Located by a lake with great views of the geothermal activity. You must be self contained. We decided to stay after the visit as it was getting dark.
2 adults & 2 children (7 & 3 years old). Stayed in July.
