This is a very popular picnicing area and campsite. It is situated in an old gold mining area, so you can try your luck at fossicking for the good stuff in the creek.
There are separate areas for campervans and tents as it can get pretty wet here in a west coast down pour!!
It is close to Reefton should you need supplies. A good place to explore the Victoria Forest Park walks.

Marvellous very kiwi. History, river, flat, and well separated sites. Great even in a west coast shower. Agree, bring a torch for the toilet.

We had a great time at this spot. There are toilets, running river where we panned for gold successfully, there is a brick fire place and pizza oven which we did not use, working toilets and trees to camps amongst. We thoroughly enjoyed this spot and would recommend, however Sandflies were an absolute nightmare So come prepared!! $8 per night per person.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Very quiet, about a km down a gravel road from the highway. Nicely sited beside a lovely little river.
Quiet, hidden place in the forest next to the river. Secure stations for making a barbecue. Lots of sandflies!
Nice spot on a creek, lots of sandflies but does not have bathroom facilities.
Great little doc campsite with seperate areas for campers. Frequented by locals who go gold panning. Good toilet facilities. Located not far from Reefton
love this place
Great camping spot and again thanks to DOCS. We saw two guys with heaps of gold specs from the beautiful didymo infected creek, well done. Wekas are so cute - we saw chicks as well. Clean sites and good clean toilet. Just put on some insect repellent for the sand flies.
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 😍
