This place is nice and cheap. Shower toilet and socket to charge stuff. At least it is safe too. We tried an overnight @ Lake Ngahewa Recreation Reserve But a couple parked there and went for a walk. The result? Front window smashed and stolen goods..

Pros:- cheapCons:- extremly loud - 1 toilet (also used by guests of the tavern)- there is no real seperation of the campsite from the tavern (the campsite was also used as a parking place by tavern guests)- be prepared to get rude comments by guests if you're going to the toiletAll in all, it was an imposition

We stayed for 1 night, super close to wai-o-tap. Lots of room, tables and everything. Toilet wasnt that nice, and only 1 shower which is annoying, but it was hot. $20 per van. It is next to a road, but it didnt bother us, didnt hear any cars at night.
