First you have find the carpark before the bridge and then to walk 2.5km. Do Not drive the gravel road to the farm. It's a dead end road.

... really nice and peaceful. If you cross the bridge to the farm over the road they sell free range eggs which are delicious. They also gave us some fruit from their garden. We had a very nice evening. But a bit surprised that no one has commented about the vagueness of this campground yet!

This place doesnt exist. Coordinates take you to a private house. There is however a car park about 800m past the turning google maps will take you down, called Kaniwhaniwha RESERVE where there is a drop toilet and a nice river. We had no idea if we could stay overnight in our camper but we did anyway and we were fine...
