Amazing DOC campsite!! Fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle, stoves, unlimited hot showers!! And out in the bush, only ones here!!!



Perfect campground for me :) Some people will say that $20l.p. is overpriced but you have hot unlimited shower, equipped kitchen and a quiet and wild place. The walk from there is wonderful! You can see stunning kauris. I've done the walk twice, at daytime and then at nighttime , but unfortunately I haven't seen any kiwi... :( just 3 possums.



Good Campground. Flushing toilets and hot showers. Don't expect something fancy, but it's ok. Kitchen facilities are excellent. Unpowered sites on grass, powered sites on gravel. The highlight is of course the walk. We did it twice. Once at daytime, which was nice with a lot of Kauris. But the real show is at night. We started at around 10pm and have been lucky enough to spot a Kiwi!! We spend around 15min with it. It sometimes went hiding in the bush but than came back really close to the walkway!! Such an amazing experience! The real key is to have a torch/headlight with a red light. The white light just scares the Kiwi off. And you have to be as quite as possible. Good luck ;-)
