70 Basic Camping
A large, low cost camping area right on the foreshore of Lake Tutira. Makes a good base for walks that start from the lake or a day trip to nearby Boundary Stream Scenic Reserve.

Beautiful place, just by the lake. Good hiking trails around the campsite. Definitely worth a visit.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 74 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Beautiful setting in a paddock surrounded amongst tress for shade.
Three Composting long drops (bring your own toilet paper), no kitchen or shower facilities but running water that requires boiling first.
Approximately 700 metres from the road so you can hear the vehicles in the distance but nothing to worry about.
All the campers apart from one small group got a little noisey but apart from that it’s a stunning place to stay.
About 4 different walking tracks start from the camp grounds.
No cell phone coverage.
We will definitely be coming back :)

Stunning campsite right on the lake. Can hear some noise from the road across the lake but not loud enough to keep you awake. Nice sheltered area with benches for picnic and good trails here too. Drop toilet was ok, clean but no toilet paper
Pretty spot by the lake. Only thing that put me off were the black swans who were nosey and weren't scared off by me shouting at them and waving sticks!
Really nice little campground. The scenery is beautiful and there is ample space. It feels quite private, but you are close enough to the road (across the lake) to hear some noise during the night. Still, we really liked this spot!
Nice little campground - but watch out for the aggressive black swans
Fees are on donation, and what a fantastic place this was! Birds and sheep keep you company. We got a beautiful morning with mirror reflection of the landscape in the lake, just stunning...
Awesome camp ground, next to a lake with great views. It was a pity it's unsafe for swimming. We really enjoyed staying here!
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
