Great campsite, grassy area, front of the lake and a lot of spaces for everybody. No facilities, good signal reception.



Dogs ok :-)



This site is misleading if you try to use Google Maps to find it. It will take you to a culdesack with no camping site. If you go to the other site in Mangakino - the Recreation Reserve - and then continue driving past the reserve with the play area and swimming platform and drive on the gravel track between the lake and the golf course you will come to a large grassed area with water access. This is the area shown as Matekuri Island.
