With 50 acres of large sites set amongst the pine trees, you won't have trouble
finding a spot to enjoy the peacefulness of this lakeside campground. There are
two central amenity blocks, that include modern kitchens and bathrooms, as
well as room for dining both inside and out. The tidy and stylishly corrugated
showers are free, and the laundry has excellent automatic equipment.
Scattered around the grounds are several unique outdoor camping facilities
- shower and toilets in new corrugated iron and wood buildings but with
open air feeling of the old long drops. There are also BBQs and picnic tables
placed in several places, and a dump point is provided. On the edge of Lake
Ruataniwha the swimming is great, with a jetty and slide right by the camp,
there are also several playgrounds. At the office is a well-stocked shop where
eftpos is available, a card operated phone, and you can hire pedal cars, canoes,
paddle boards, etc from here too. Kura and Tony Ritchie will look after you
andthis is a pet friendly park. Non-powered tent sites are $17 per adult and
$10 per child (2 to 15 years) per night. Power sites $18 per person.
