We came in hope for campsite with bathrooms, as was written in reviews, those were closed at 6 p.m., se we left. Looks quiet and nice though.

Lovely place with lots of space and a great view to the nearby mountains. Clean toilets and washbasins, cold shower in the open.
According to locals, they never seen or applied for the required permit sticker. Couldn‘t get it anyway, as we arrived on Sunday and Council office was closed.
Only (minor) issue: whole campground was covered with cut grass, which then obviously ended up inside the tent :-)
Nice open site with plenty of space. Wasn’t crowded even on Easter weekend when families came and set up camp. Clean toilets and large rubbish bins.
There’s a small river here but it’s not a great example of clean green NZ. There are signs up warning about toxic algae and unfortunately the local hunters have used it to dispose of their headless boar carcasses. So yeah stay on the grassy field and enjoy the sunset in this peaceful setting.
It’s odd that the council expect people to get a permit in advance for this free site. We arrived on dark and without a permit. No warden was seen.
