4 Springs Junction
A small campsite on grassy flats next to the Lewis River. It is quite tight to turn at the end of the road - so check if you have room, or at least to ability to back out. This site is close to the St James walkway, and only about 10km from Maruia Springs.

cute place by a stream, only two other cars were there, lots of privacy, gets a little chilly at night & the toilet was what you’d expect, needs a clean
Nice spot. Quite cold in the morning. A little hard to find from the North. Needs better signage. Toilet was unclean as well.
Basic DOC camp ground. There is a $5 honesty fee. Is in a valley so gets freezing cold overnight even in summer. Couple of sandflies around too so pack the repellent!
A good little campsite right on the river but close to the road. The toilet smells because they do!
Great location, well managed, right at the river with plenty of spaces and sandflies.
A bit cold this winter, but a fine site. Quiet in the night, hardly no traffic. Toilet was clean. We were alone and stayed one night after a satisfying Maruia hotpool.
Nice spot, but we arrived on a rainy day and there were so many sandflies that we had to jump back on the car and keep on going. Also quite noisy from the road nearby, but that was probably worsened by the wet surface.
Basic and remote camping ground. Good for some quiet time. Toilet was not too clean.
Location: very pretty view, in the mountains, mornings are beautiful there, spacious, little corners so no need to stay too close
Sanitary facilities: well - free site, expect a smelly loo
lots of sandflies though, would stay there again.
Too cold and closed in. Close to Lewis Pass so the altitude is an issue in any season other than full summer.
Long drop toilet, easy to find, wind shelters, nice and free spot and convenient distance after visit of Hamner Springs pools.
Great place directly at the river.
Has the smelliest and dirtiest long drop I have ever seen, well overdue for a good clean inside the shed. Otherwise pleasant spot by river, just off main road.
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 😍
