Best campsite during our tandem tour of the South Island. Best views, best showers (lake) and best pitches (only one other family there). Toilet and BBQ, all free. We arrived by steamer and cycled the next day on our tandem to Mavora Lakes on the gravel road. Quite a hard bike trip on the gravel road and with 2 water crossings. But the whole trip was well worth it to be able to stay at Walter Peak. Might you don't tell everyone as the loneliness made it so special!

Great spot. Top marks DOC. Theres a shelter with free BBQ cookers, and a vault toilet.
Oh yes and absolutely stunning views of the lake and surrounding hills.
