Moke Lake Camping Ground is a gorgeous, peaceful place next to a small lake. the camping area is quite open with wicked views of the valley all around you.
Go boating, swimming, fishing or canoeing on the lake. Walk or mountain bike from Moke Lake to Lake Dispute (2 hr walk).
This place is part of the local helicopter companies scenic route and every so often you sort of feel like you are in a war zone as up to five choppers fly overhead and up the valley - pretty random....

(Travelling with husband and two small kids) Absolutely stunning view, lovely campsite. Nice DOC ranger with some good advice on how to be ‘accepted’ by the locals. Basic facilities, don’t expect much. Expect nature at its best and the reason why ‘free’ camping is so great.

Loved this place. Beautiful and so quiet and still so close from hectic queenstown. Would go back anytime.

I LOVE THIS CAMPSITE! It’s easily my favourite. The only facility is just a public non-flushing toilet however the setting is so peaceful, beautiful and it feels really remote. It was just what I was looking for to relax and just enjoy our surroundings. Do bring some sort of insect repellant though.
Stunning spot, absolutely beautiful location and lovely walk around the lake. Horses and sheep are cool.
Perfect place for scenic and tranquil camping with 3 generations of our family. Close to town yet tons of space in beautiful, pure wilderness. Basic facilities completely adequate. Has not got big shade trees but plenty of smaller bushes. Insect repellent a good idea. Walk around the lake lovely and just right for kiddies to get a feel for tramping. Lake nice for swimming in hot January weather. Camp wardens Roy and Dorita went out of their way to be helpful and friendly, very much appreciate their contribution to making our stay at Moke Lake so memorable.
Absolute heaven. Brilliant views, lovely walk/jog around the lake (2hrs) our fave camping spot so far. (With a small tent)
A bit of a drive along a gravel road from the highway, but a gorgeous site with lovely views. Facilities were basic but clean. One of the best places we stayed. Get up early and walk around the lake, it was beautiful.
Beautiful location so close to town. Much nice than the one on lake wakatipu
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 😍
