Magical camping spot, the drove in there is 4km of bumpy track off the road, we parked next to the river. We were woken in the morning by a pair of blue ducks foraging in the dammed pool in the river next to us. The loop sanctuary walk through the forest is really good night and day!

Great small campsite in very remote area beside a stream. Good place to stay to break up the journey to te urewera. It is possible to do a night walk and listen to the kiwis from there. Lovely Hike to do in whirinaki conservation area.

This campsite is very much the traditional basic kind of campsite. Peaceful ,by a stream , with a neat walking track through a forest of huge Rimu, totara etc. trees. Around March/april you will get hunters camped there otherwise you are likely to have it to yourself.
