There is camping available for short terms stays and a flat, fenced paddock area is suitable for tents, campervans, caravans. Compost toilets and taps only (no kitchen or showers). Shelter for day picnickers. Signs regarding swimming warnings - lake water quality can be poor at times.

The country park lies within steep hill country in the hills, and includes several mostly easy walks, a wetland, an arboretum, picturesque lakes, and is alongside a DOC wildlife reserve.

There are honesty boxes around the site, please use these to keep this place rolling!
