Camp beside Lake Mahināpua within forest surroundings. A popular overnight and day stop. Historically Lake Mahināpua was a main access waterway up and down the coast using paddle steamers. Water sports in the lake. Number of tent sites - 100.
Lake Mahinapua Camping Ground is a huge campsite is a very popular spot for the overnight crew as well as the day picnickers. You can camp right next to the lake, there is also a boat ramp if you are keen on some water action. There are picnic areas and recycling facilities on site.
In the past Lake Mahinapua was used as an a main access waterway for paddle steamers to cruise up and down the coast.

A lovely lake with the back drop of the mountains.The camp site is back a little from the lake a large grassy area with plenty of choice where to park. Clean and tidy toilets, solar shower and shelter for kitchen area.
Very few campers (July 2020) Grounds well maintained tho choose site carefully because of wet conditions. Clean flush toilets w/paper, small outside shelter area with cold water and sink. Beautiful lake views and walks through the bush.
Facilities are closed, epic views, peaceful, morning icy swimming is a must!
Excellent campsite. Beautiful walks and rides in the area.
One of our favorite !
This is a gorgeous campsite, right on the shores of the lake. The amenities were clean with flushing toilets. Lovely big communal undercover areas. Mowed grassy and flat camping areas. DOC Campsite, so cost $13 per person, per night.
Excellent doc campsite. Included in the campervan pass and has really good facilities. Flushing toilets, with soap and tp. Even a solar shower but we didn't use so not sure how well it worked. They also have rubbish and recycling bins. One of the best equipped DOC sites we stayed in at this price.
Nice clean toilets. Great place to set up overnight.
We stAyed at this DOC site after reading reviews. Not a massive site, but enough space for choice of spots. Lake itself is nice with mountain backdrop. 10mins from Hokitika. Limited toilet facilities only.
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 😍
