Lake Tutira Campsite


4.5 from 4 users


Camp at the southern end of the freshwater lake, and walk to Table Mountain Trig for views of inland Kaweka, Maungaharuru Range and coastal Hawke's Bay. Enjoy fishing, swimming, kayaking and sailing on the lake. Camping in tents is allowed. Note: There are two campsites in this area. This one, near the entrance is a DOC Campsite. Further along the road, over the causeway on the South Eastern edge of the lake is the Hawkes Bay Regional Council site.

It's very unclear if this specific spot is still a DOC Campsite. There is no signage to say it is. The 600m sign is inaccurate as it takes you to nowhere on the road that's campable. The Regional Park Campsite at the end of the road is very peaceful and has great sunsets. But as not DOC, assume you can't use the DOC pass here. Clearer signage needed.

Absolutely amazing bloody place. Insanely good. In autumn and winter time wicked place to fish trout too.

Nice place. You can camp here if you give a small donation to keep the toliets clean. Really calm.
