We showed up Halloween night. There were a few guests dressed up. We skipped out on the activity. The drive to the parking lot felt like we were goin up a driveway to someone’s house. It’s a gravel parking lot, pretty level, had clean bathrooms, and fits about 12 campers. Quiet area except for a few drunks that wondered out and about at closing

Very friendly people. Free stay overnight for self contained caravans. Toilets are very clean and the views at Carpark is beautiful... free spot to see the glow worms at night! Cannot appreciate enough...

20Sept18. Sorry, May. It is signposted from the road through Waitomo and is easy to find. That apart I agree entirely with all the positive comments that have gone before. Great food and service. Wonderful location. So good, no mark down due to the car park not being completely level.

Slightly difficult to find as the road is not marked. But, once found it is worth the drive. A beautiful place.

Great place to stay overnight. We took the option of splitting our caves tours over two days. Roselands was easy to access... just follow the signs. We met Pete on arrival and he and the ladies inside couldn’t help us enough. We had dinner in the Restaurant and enjoyed a nice NZ Pinot Noir during Happy Hour. Appreciate the Freedom Camping and in exchange well worth supporting this business. Highly recommend.

Great restaurant and free camping in the car park out back. The views at the restaurant are magnificent and the people are very friendly. Nice quiet spot.
