Lower Lake Rd, Leeston, Canterbury

Temporary SuperLoo toilets
Fresh water is available at a few strategic locations
Lakeside Domain is a large public reserve near the mouth of Lake Ellsmere, just a short drive from Christchurch. We arrived there on a gloomy day in mid autumn, so we didn't really see the lake at it's best. However, there were still a few motorhomes parked there.
The existing toilets were damaged in the Christchurch earthquakes, and have been fenced off and replaced with temporary SuperLoos.
There is fresh water available at a few locations within the reserve, but most of the areas suitable for overnight parking have nothing.
The lake is very popular for fishing, boating and wind-surfing, especially over summer.
It had been raining heavily over the previous few days, so the grass areas were too soft to drive on. This would be a great location over the summer months, but marginal for the rest of the year.
