Free campground near the beautiful area of Arthur's Pass Dec 30, 2010
Check-in: The campground is classified as basic so there is no cost. Just park where ever you like and enjoy the views!
Location: About 35 km south of Arthur's Pass, set on a lake
Facilities: There is one picnic table and one pit toilet. Water can be sourced from the lake but it must be boiled before drinking. I saw a few people kayaking and canoeing on the lake. Fishing was also attempted (but failed on this occasion) :)
Campsites: The campervans when we arrived were all parked alongside the lake. There are also a few tree sheltered areas as well.
Overall experience: This was an excellent stopover for us on the way from the west coast to Christchurch. Waking up next to this beautiful lake and mountains was the perfect end to our camping adventure.
