Fair old trek to this one, nice and remote with fantastic views. Had the place to ourselves.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 79 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
We arrived in the dark but good site, beautiful views. No facilities but fine for self contained vehicles and cheap for a family ($20). Only 10km outside of Queenstown
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
A short walk around the lake, on a full moon it was pretty magical!
Rough gravel road, narrow in parts, to get there, but well worth it. The scenery is really magic and on a still day the lake looks like a mirror. Only for self-contained though. No toilet, but can use water from lake. We stayed there three days - didn't want to leave!
The campsite was a little disappointing. The drive there is fantastic, but the camping area itself is not that fantastic. There are a number of telephone poles in front of you. Having said that we had the place to ourselves which was nice.
Most stunning view of the lake, parking space is situated in front of a charming forest.
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 😍
