If walking the Heaphy track from the Golden Bay end, this campsite is in a great spot after doing most of the climbing on day one...it has 5 sites and a shelter with sinks under which you can cook your dinner and sit at a picnic table. I had an incredibly thrilling experience just before arriving at Perry Saddle one time:...I was dawdling behind in our group, it was later in the day, almost dusk and a kiwi came out on the track in front of me...actually it was quite assertive, vocal and seemed a bit stroppy...maybe I was too close to its nest? I'll never forget it....pure magic.
