(06) 350 9700




A standard campsite above the Pohangina River near the Ruahine Forest Park. There are 3 non-powered/tent sites. Bookings are required. A large grassy clearing at the back of the grounds, overlooking the Pohangina River and across to the Ruahine Forest Park, provides an ideal spot for pitching your tent. The eastern boundary is a high cliff; caution is required. A smaller clearing sheltered by trees south of the Pohangina Base buildings may also be used for camping. Each campsite caters for up to six people. Campsite users will have access to an outdoor tap, a flush toilet and two hot showers in the outer building. Campsite users are not permitted to use the indoor facilities in the main building (i.e. kitchen, communal living area, and indoor bathroom). Fires are not permitted at any time. Dogs on a leash only. The facilities are locked, using combination padlocks that can be tricky to operate. You must contact DOC to obtain current codes for locks before your stay, so you will need to allow time for this when planning and booking your visit. If you will be arriving after dark, take a flashlight so you can see the locks. There is no mobile reception on site.
