300 Basic Camping
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.

This campsite was perfect for what we needed. Only an hour from Wanaka, good nightly rates, quiet enough. No complaints here!

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.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Nice little spot for the night, apocalyptic sandflies though and very busy
In the middle of no where but fine for one night. Toilets are basic, no soap. Lovely views
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.
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.
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 😍
