We didn't stay overnight but we parked up here to walk up to Blue Range Hut. We loved the spot and will be back to stay another time. We can imagine it's idyllic in summer with the stream, the bush and the walk options. Nice sheltered table and the toilets were clean. A narrow gravel road to get there but this was in good repair.

I have hesitated before writing a review...
This place is just PERFECT if you love wild and quiet places.
Toilets, a shelter to cook and eat.
Birds everywhere, nice little walk through an incredible redwood forest. This is the beginning of some very long walks too.
No road sign on the main road. Just turn on the Kiriwhakapapa road (gravel, but ok). Rabbits on the road, be careful.
I wrote that I have hesitated before writing a review because this place is a forgotten paradise, and if tons of campervans go there it won't be a paradise anymore :)

Beautiful camping place. Shelter to cook, good toilets, relaxing river and birds... Spacious to set the tent.
It's a nice place but the constant wind just made it unpleasant.
Absolutely stunning spot. Peaceful tranquility. Fall asleep to the sound of the gently babbling stream and wake up to the call of birdsong. Lovely short walk around the loop track. Decent flushing loos and plenty of space. Loved it.
Quiet campground with good toilets next to a creek, got very windy as it's a valley, wind and rain made it hard to do anything! When it calmed there was nice walk through the redwood forest.
Great walking track, but no water supply.
Beautiful campsite at the end of a 10 km road, half of which is gravel. Only one other camper there. Good toilets and running water right by a pristine stream. Great little tracks. Went up to the Blue Ridge Hut and it was straight up 3+ km. Rewarding views and good for the appetite! Only negative was the wind. Don't know if this is common but it howled all night when we were there December 4, 2014.
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 😍
