A large, flat, sheltered camping area which makes a great base for exploring the Tennyson Inlet and the nearby area by boat, foot or by mountain bike. The start of the Nydia Track is only 3 km away in Duncan Bay. There are boat launching ramps and picnic areas in Duncan and Penzance Bays.

Brilliant spot if you want quiet & simple. Many good spots to tuck into or hide away. Pleasant little stream running by too. DOC ranger is onto it so make sure you've paid! Only downside is the beast of a drive into the inlet and back out.Big bus or big campers might think twice - very steep & windy road although it is sealed.

A very pleasant camp surrounded by native bush and heaps of bird life. We stayed here 2 days entertained by wood pigeons and weka. Super quiet apart from the owls (moreporks) calling at night. It's right off the beaten track and you need to be totally self-sufficient if you come here. The nearest shops, fuel, etc., are right back at the Rai Valley village. A major plus is a sealed road all the way from the state highway.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Quiet, good fishing close by (Pipi Beach).
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 😍
