Secret Agent Man

Nice quiet and tidy camp close to Rotorua, expensive for a DoC camp with no facilities apart from long drop toilets, at $15 per adult. Ranger comes through in the evening to collect fee.



Spent two nights here. Beautiful spot, where you swim or fishing. Quiet place. Just toilets and picnic area. Really expensive, you'll pay only the view.



beautiful spot in front of the lake and lots of places.
