An easily accessible campground beside the Napier-Taihape Rd near Kuripapango. 1 km gravel road off main road towards the river.
The nearby Ngaruroro River provides opportunities for fishing, rafting and swimming.

Nice open, isolated DOC site. Loads of flat grassy spaces for tents and plenty for RVs too. No officials, just a donation box. Tiny but functional toilets and water 500 meters away in the river. For us it was rather spoiled by a huge number of very busy bees. They didn't bother us but the air and ground were thick with them. Whether this is always the case I can't tell.
Great campsite...plenty of room for all. Crystal clear river, easy walk down to. 3 toilets. Spectacular scenery, and good walks nearby. Donation for camping, so please do.
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 😍
