Good organised site near the crossing and main walks. There's very little else around so this is really very useful and complaints about the price seem a bit unreasonable. Fairly big and well organised site. We stayed in a powered van, pleanty of space and freedom to choose where, good facilities. They happily arranged shuttles and searched for my wife on the site when I tried to phone her from the crossing

Remote and very quiet, nice for a family, clean and friendly, helpful staff. Location was not ideal.

Fair price for the transport.
We got a lot of information about the Tongariro Alpine Crossing regarding fitness, safety, clothing etc. to decide if we want to do the crossing. If you decide not to do the crossing at the starting point (after the first transfer) you get your money back, which is really fair.
