Beautiful bush clad campground, with tons of grassy spots for vehicles and tents. Excellent selection of powered and un-powered sites. Showers. Laundry. Heaps of walks. Mobile reception on Spark and 2Degrees is available but patchy and low signal. 1-2 bars on 4G and 3 bars 3G in the right spot. Generally better in the South Eastern section and around main ablution block.



Really lovely host. Was super busy during Canterbury Anniversary weekend. Next to no reception. Lots of shelter and heaps of walks. Water is on a timer. No dump station. Lots of taps



Really nice hosts, relaxed atmosphere. Nice grass spots, really spacious! Nice trails that depart from campsite. Enjoyed our stay.
