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.

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.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 79 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Good spot but gets full quickly. Toilets need a torch pretty much day and night.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Nice place but awful lot of sandflies. Beautiful scenery.
Hundreds of sandflies so don't forget your insect repellent. Clean flush toilets, water supply and roofed picnic area.
Nice views on mountains. Good facilities. Possibilities to make a fire.
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.
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.
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 😍
