“Stinky...”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Stinked us out but it was pretty in the day. We stayed right next to it in the Sudima. Creeped us out a little bit when a bunch of police show up there at midnight and explored the bushland. It's a good way to see the natural beauty of Rotorua and find mini geysers.

“Lovely lake”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We had a relaxing break beside the lake and our lunch was amazing having eaten near the lake. Parking can be a challenge especially on a Sunday but it is worth stopping by. We took photos by the lake after resting and eating... such a nice stop before heading back.

As a long term Rotorua resident it good to see our lakes being cared for and the Lake Shore facilities being used. Well worth coming here!
