Update: DOC has reopened this site from Easter 2022. Currently closed. Due to the Wellington parliamentary protesters moving to this site, DOC has closed this campground to the public.



Nice place in nature, but shower is really old and not hot. Shower was more like warm or not so cold. No drinking water, only water which you need to boil first. For that money is not worth to sleep there. 15$ per night per person
