The Pleasant Flat Camping Ground is the first of the DOC campsites as you drive towards Wanaka over Haast Pass. This large grassy sheltered camp site is tucked nicely among the mountains. Take in the magnificent views of Mt Hooker from the campsite. Fish in nearby Haast River, enjoy short walks or picnics. Be prepared for the mega sandfly onslaught.
Great information boards about the local fauna and flora. Everything is wheelchair accessible, there are picnic tables and a shelter to cook in.
Total fire ban.

Nice little place, with great view over to the valley, nice arrangement and next to a river. Great stop on route to the West Coast.

Nice quiet camp spot just off the road along Haast Pass about halfway between Wanaka and West Coast. Not alot of room, but beautiful none the less. Pristine creek just next to the camp running into the main river. Just nice.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Perfect spot for an overnight stay. Level ground and very easy to find. It is quite close to road so you will get a little bit of noise from cars passing by but not a big issue as not many cars in the winter.
Beautiful scenery, comparably big area, water but no drinking water, toilet should flush but they don't - therefore very dirty and smelly. I hope that council will do something from the money they get and fix WC's.
Really comfortable campground with nice places for the tent and clean bathrooms. Near the river to wake up and swim.
We at Rankers NZ, love to meet travellers on the road and share in some of the freedom. That's why Rankers NZ invites you to come and stay for free at our chill riverside overnight parking area in the Motueka Valley at the top of the South Island.
DOC campground. $6 per person. Toilets clean but no drinking water. Beside a river. Good for an overnight stop. Can't complain.
