We only came to see the falls not stay overnight. Falls were lovely to see. Worth stopping by as right off the road.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Really a parking lot for the falls. Not a place that we wanted to sleep BUT we walked to the bottom of the water fall which was a nice little walk to break up our day of traveling.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Similar reviews to the others- the two sites are on a gentle-ish slope down hill, and the toilets locked earlier than 10pm to us. Also pretty noisy with youths hanging around late in the car park. But the waterfall and surrounding stream and forest is stunning. Had a lovely swim in it! Overall worth doing for the one night to relax by the waterfall.
There are only 2 spaces for over night stay, and they are in a slight slope, but it’s still ok to sleep (marked between the red arrow signs). Toilets are good and clean but closed between 10pm and 5.30am.
Lovely surrounds, clean well lit toilets. Camping area is not very level thought. Awesome waterfall....!

There are two spots on the corner of the Waterfalls car park. The spots are not on an even surface which is really annoying for cooking and sleeping. There are clean toilets right there but if you are looking for a scenic spot, this probably isn‘t the right one.
