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.

Kleiner Platz mit verteilten Plätzen. Ca 15-20. Gegen 20 Uhr noch ein Platz bekommen.
Nah an den Blue Pools, schöne Aussicht zum Fluss. Aber viele Sand Flies!!!

Small site, not much room for tents. Lovely view though

This place was fine to stop over and camp one night but the toilets were on the gross end (needed a solid clean), and had basic ammenities (a shelter and water basin area). The camping spots were basically just an open parking lot so no privacy and no trees around. A nice enough view of the mountains and river over the road. $8 per person per night. Can’t complain but have camped in nicer spots along the west coast. Birds are loud in the morning but that’s not a negative.
nice campsite with good view of the mountains and the jungle, not super shelter up a hill of the road but no noise during the night; heaps of sandflies around that time of the year but definitely a good option to have a cheap campsite; beautiful bush walk starts right at the spot, 20 min. to the blue pools with way mooore sandflies there but stunning blue water
Beautiful location, short walk away from Blue Pools. We were self contained so no issues with toilets and need lots of repellent for sandflies. No issue with cost as supports conservation work locally.
Ended up here because we didn’t want to get caught in a heavy storm in Haast. A little pricey but not outrageous. There were about 6-8 vans. Quiet and decent bathrooms. The view over the valley was ok since it was raining.
Absolutely beautiful location, and the Blue Pools (an easy walk) were stunning. Downsides - the toilets were pretty feral, considering the 24 dollar pricetag...
Nice location just before heading through to the Westland. It's has toilet and a sink area if you need. Couple of parking site which you can choose for the night. However, there is no cell phone signal in this area when I was there.
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 😍
