Great, quiet spot by lake. Flat and plenty of space. Best for self contained, but some toilets nearby. Beware of mosquitoes!
Great spot by the river. Plenty of space even for larger campervans. Fairly busy but very peaceful still due to the space and quiet at night.
Lovely place. Nice sunsets and sunrises. Locals there during the day but quiet at night. Lots of mosquitoes in the evening
Lovely lake, fantastic boardwalk to enjoy. Many locals come down but leave by nightfall. Nice grassy area to kick a ball and have fun. Toilets too far away
We arrived at night, the place was completely empty. Dry toilets easy to find at the entrance, they were really clean for a toilet in the middle of nowhere. Amazing views in a foggy winter morning. There's a wooden walkway that goes around the lake and it's perfect for a morning walk. We saw pukekos!
Toilets open all night but stinky. Lots of locals during the day. Quiet at night.
Free camping right beside the lake. If you drive on past the first campsite you get a nicer site closer to the lake, but the toilets are at the first parking lot, there are tons of spots there in a big paved lot. Quiet and a nice stop for us on the way to Waitomo
Great lakeside site with plenty of space to enjoy the views. Quiet at night. Long drop toilets a short walk across à grassy reserve - pity some campers don’t bother to use it and do their business in the nearby bushes (shame on you if you behave this way)
The campground itself is pretty good, the drop toilet was very far, near the rowing club, but clean and with hand sanitizer. No drinking water
Read the reviews first as we initially parked
at sailing club car park to then read reviews to the correct place further on. Toilets at first part not actual grounds. Lovely spot by the water. Great walk around lake.
Lovely secluded grass/gravel spot with views directly over the lake. Public toilet which seemed to be open all night. Large campsite with room for 40ish+ campers. We stayed in June and approx 20 campers parked here.
Quiet place to stay with nice view. Don’t park too close to the boat ramp (in use early in the morning). Start point for a walk around the lake.

Both of us really liked this place. A little away from everything, and you have to drive all the way to the end for the campground. But once you’re there, it’s a very quiet and peaceful place next to the lake. New drop toilets are a little walk away (about 500m), but clean, and with sanitiser. No water available which is always a downer. But a relaxing spot with a beautiful sunset.
