Based at a DOC water access only campsite at the southern end of Lake Tarawera. Popular with families with water taxi access.
Water edge is thermal. There is a hot stream merging with the lake water surrounded with rocks that form the actual pool. Can cook trout in the nearby sand. There is a small rock edge and stream thermal pools nearby.
