Nice site with new toilet block. Very friendly/pesky pair of wekas that hang around hoping for some food! Next to a river where you can go panning for gold. Can't say we found any but it was really good fun! Would recommend!

Funny with the goldmine. Toilets were clean. Some walks around the campsite.

$6 per night and if you bring a gold pan and know how to use it you will definitely find some small nuggets in the riverbed.

Really nice spot! Toilets clean. Close to a few nice walking tracks. Bugs weren't too bad either. Would definitely stay again. Good place to stop for the night if heading to Arthur's pass or coming from the pass and don't want to go all the way to Hokitika.

This is how all doc sites should be ! Nice grassed sites with good basic facilities and well signed walks and plenty of birds hopping around .Beautiful spot a bit of a drive down tar seal for a change .
