Amazing views. Long drops clean and smell good. Water tastes great. Staff super friendly and helpful. Woman gave me homegrown peaches. Definitely worth the drive.

Great DOC site in the middle of nature. After a long ride on a dirt road the camping is exactly what we expected. Very friendly rangers.

The quiet of the high country! No frills but perfect after a long day through the 'blue borage' (actually 'vipers bugloss') meadows of the magical Molesworth.

Travelled from Hanmer End, lunched at Acheron Cob Cottage, beautiful spot for camping, but we chose to drive on to Cob Cottage at the other end.
Drive was amazingly scenic, fairly good gravel road.
Campsite was great, really friendly Rangers, good toilet facility, peaceful and good water.
Totally recommend to anyone thinking of doing this trip.
