Incredible place to pitch a tent and take a rest for the evening. Views of the mountains on Lake Wanaka.

This is an awesome spot to stop and camp for the evening if you are traveling on the SH6 either west to the coast or east into Wanaka and beyond. From the campsite, you can hike up Boundary Creek Track, during the day.

There are 40 non-powered tent sites (nondescript, large grassy areas to pitch tents) on this campground. The facilities offer shelter for cooking, flush toilets year round, running water from the tap, and picnic tables. It is also wheelchair accessible. The site can be reached by car, motorhome, and caravan.

Camping fees are $6 adult/night, $3 children/night, and free for infants - there is a self check in at campsite.

Getting there: The campsite is signposted off of the SH6, just past Lake Hawea going west or before Lake Hawea going east.

Backpack the Valley of the Trolls

New Zealand / The Valley of The Trolls Trailhead

The Valley of The Trolls can be accessed from the head of Lake Harris, off the Routeburn track. The trail in the valley is a lot tougher going than the well maintained Routeburn track.

Paddle and Camp at Lake Taupō!

New Zealand / Motutere Campground

It lacks salt, but Lake Taupō is quickly becoming one of the favorite places to visit on the weekends. An easy 3.

Hike to the Mt. Brown Hut and Mt. Brown Summit

New Zealand / Mount Brown Track

This trail is unique in that it is community run, solely by volunteers.  The track starts at a signposted car park just short of an hour east of Hokitika.
