Arrived in the dark, a little tricky to find but lovely peaceful spot in the woods. There are a few picnic tables and lots of spaces (only 6 others when we were there and lots of room still). Toilets are clean but unfortunately closed for repair in the morning. Highly recommend as a quiet stopover

Fantastic spot. They no longer allow tents in this area so campervans can park in those spots some of which have picnic tables. We had a great spot for two nights with trees so we put our hammocks up. Good toilets and drinking water. People keep arriving late as there is so much space but otherwise really quiet and peaceful. We will be staying here again on our way back up the North Island for sure!
Well located in a nice little forest between Rotorua and Tauranga. Clean flush toilets, drinking water and a BBQ Area (but didnt use them since they were dirty). Lots of space for ~20 campervans, pretty quiet. Would stay here again!
Great spot. Sufficiënt capacity (~20) in a beautiful forest location. Spotless amenities
Lovely overnight spot to stay between Tauranga and Rotorua. Bathrooms 5min walk away from the campsite which was moved from the original location. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. The other spots filled up from 18h00 onwards when we stayed over in April 2019. I would also recommend the walking tracks starting close to the bathroom locations.
A really lovely place relatively close to Rotorua.
Great toilets and has a BBQ.
If you do not turn left in time you make it to the gravel road. You do not need to go there!
It has a great walk which starts from the information board. It takes about 1,5 hours to walk.
Make sure to take the entry into amenities block the track in to the camping area is just passed this, we did the tunnel loop walk, there were glow worms in the tunnel which was a great bonus.

Totally worth it. We were the only ones there until morning when we saw one other had arrived in the night. Great toilets and fresh water. Felt completely safe as ranger lived right next door.
Good clean flush toilets and fresh water. Tranquil setting.
Loved bush walk. Great stop over between Rotorua and Tauranga.
Really beautiful and quiet area. Toilets are open all night and were clean. BBQ behind the building with toilets. Visiting in late February there were only 3 other vans parked overnight.

Just as described, very peaceful place, public toilets a bit of the campingground. Thanks you!
Only stayed the night, so I didn't explore the area. The freedom camping area is a big area in the forest. Toilets are close by.
