273 Basic Camping
North Island ▷ Coromandel ▷ Thames
This is a typical basic DOC campsite. A place to park close to the tramping track we wanted. It's one of the ones here open in winter. We arrived in our self contained camper in the dark in the middle of a downpour in June and were the only ones there. The longdrops were a bit smelly, but there was plenty of paper! We found several places to park that weren't flooded and the friendly DOC guy came in the morning to tell us the ford was passable and the information Centre was closed which I thought was great. We had a great tramp to the Pinnacles in the pouring rain.
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 😍
