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....

Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 79 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Unpowered site cost $26 for 2 pax, we only had a twenty and a tenner but the park ranger left us change on our windscreen in the morning which was a pleasant surprise. Toilets were a bit rank but were cleaned in the morning.
Wouldn't have found this spot without the Rankers App, so it was very peaceful and unspoiled. There's a paddock of friendly retired race horses that will come up and say g'day. Views are amazing especially at dusk. Fav spot on our 10 day trip, cheers

Gravel road bumpy but ok in a van
Long drop toilets generAlly ok but lots of flies one day.
Lots of sheep around (sheep safari vibe) , big spaces and lovely rural setting. Taps and covered area but no “kitchen” Perhaps not lots of facilities for 13$pp but beautiful secluded location
Probably one of the most stunning campsites going. Wall to wall hills and mountains. Totally secluded and with a great little lake in the middle. Heaps of room for tents to be spread all over the place so you have plenty of choice. Lake is frequented by locals during the day for recreation but quiet at night. Facilities are clean but basic, as per a normal DOC campsite. 13 bucks per person but totally worth the little extra. Gravel road to get to but its in good condition. Can get cold at night even in summer so keep that in mind, the only disadvantage to being surrounded by mountains is the sun disappears early on. Highly recommend this place.
This was absolutely the best place we stayed in 10 days - and the last night annoyingly!!! We got there early, about midday, which would be my tip to get a perfect secluded spot by the lake. Be prepared for a bumpy 30 mins getting too it but it's not steep, just bumpy. Swam in the lake a couple of times (it's January) and we could hear other people around but hardly saw a soul, so you get the illusion at least of camping in the wild. Your pass isn't valid, which is a bit annoying, and they def check you've paid!!!! Put a good bit of deet on and you'll be fine :)
Beautiful location, tranquil, reasonable fees, basic but clean facilities.
Stayed here for a night in November, what a beautiful campsite. Not the easiest of drives down the gravel road to get there however definitely worth it. Basic toilets and no frills but what an amazing view to wake up to. Be careful of parking on the mud if it's raining as we got stuck. One other tent but felt like we were the only ones there.

Very pretty amongst the mountains and next to lake (very large grass area). Toilets only, with wash basin. Lots of sandflies. Half gravel road to get in (rough).
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 😍
