The site is alright, the road it's next to is not too busy. But lots of sandflies! I managed to keep them at bay until I got here. :(

Honestly really not a bad spot ! If you follow the gravel road another 100m down and turn right you'll find yourself in a secluded area with a breathtaking view of the mountain and complete privacy from the road. The road noise dies down around 9pm. The SANDFLIES were a real pain in the evening though, literally impossible to stay outside more than 5min, so we had to eat our dinner in our car with all doors closed. However they were gone in the morning and we had a nice breakfast outside and enjoyed the view. All in all really not a bad experience !



Yet another kiwi shithole site, roadnoise incredible, knobheads driving to the river bank like complete assholes , oh and the god of anal discharge also lives here, More human poop here than you can imagine. Give it a miss and go home to civilisation..
