Pleasant Flat Camping Ground

Information

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.

We passed Cameron Flat camp site but wanted to drive a bit longer. We then stopped here for the night. Looks less nice than Cameron flat I’d say. A basic rest area along the road. Nothing charming. Long drop toilets. Sandfly apocalypse, forget to have dinner or a beer outside, this was serious sandfly madness. Ranger passed in the morning to check payments.

Pretty nice area. Small and quiet. Being a DOC site you have to fill in a form so dont forget a pen and correct change (learn from our mistake). Beautiful frost on the grass and plants surrounding in the morning.

Good spot but gets full quickly. Toilets need a torch pretty much day and night.

Hundreds of sandflies so don't forget your insect repellent. Clean flush toilets, water supply and roofed picnic area.
