Cameron Flat


The large campsite is located near the Makarora River, just 15 mins north of Makarora Township.

The campsite is quite exposed on a fairly high plateau, you want to get here early to set yourself up to sit back and relish the spectacular view of the surrounding mountains. There are heaps of activities in the area including hunting, fishing, walking and scenic flights.

Great campsite with well maintained toilets and a cooking shelter. It was raining the whole time we were here so we didn't see much but the occasional glimpses of the surrounding mountains was cool, I bet it'd be amazing when it's clear and dry. Right across the road from the Blue Pools walk.

No shadow, some sandflies but beautiful surroundings especially at night to watch the stars, milkyway. Nearby easy walk to blue pools. Toilets get cleaned very well every day. Sink for washing your dishes.

SANDFLIES!!! So many sandflies, we couldn’t spend any time outside. Apart from that it’s quite a nice campsite with great views, a cooking shelter and large very clean toilets. Close to the stunning blue pools. We just couldn’t wait to leave because of the sandflies sadly

Beautiful spot between snow capped mountains, Big site, lots of room for vans but only a few of us the night we stayed . Further development occurring. Great walk through forest track to Blue pools - well worth the walk. Toilets. Close to road but not a lot of traffic.
