A great campsite surrounded by bush and hills. Camp on the grassy flats, heaps of space to find your own area. There is a shelter you can duck into to sort your self out in adverse weather conditions, you can also tuck into the bush for more private campsites.

A few walks start from this area. There are BBQ sites, picnic areas and rubbish facilities.

Easy to get to from the main road yet still a peaceful spot. We camped here and walked to Lake Daniels the next day. Would have given more points if there weren't so many sandflies!

Nice big open campground with heaps of room, you can tuck in under the trees on the bush edge for some protection from wind and rain . Great views across the flats to the river and mountains.

Our first stay at a DOC site. Beautiful views and some really lovely walks through the forest. The site is also on the Alpine fault line and in 1964 the scientist Frank Edison built a wall to see if the could measure the movement in the Alpine fault. Must see, part of NZ history.

Heaps of room here, with quite a few drop toilets spread about. Nice and quiet. Normally $8 pp but as we had a DOCS camp pass, it was free. Would have given 10/10 if it had flushing toilets.

Great little spot to stay at, we stayed here on the drive from Havelock to Kaikoura (Coast Road still closed Feb 17). Huge site, lots of camping under the beech forest or out in tree clearing. Easy to find just up the road on the left from the Spring Junction township. Only downside were the amount of sandflies but with good repellent they're not too much of an issue.
