Native birds & wildlife. Walking distance to boat ramp. Shop in grounds. Pets welcome by arrangement. One of NZ’s best trout fishing places.

The native bush reserve behind the camp offers all sorts of native birds, wildlife, native orchids (in season), glow-worms at night and wonderful walks in the rain forest. The camp is a relaxing place to stay, sit in the sun (yes we have plenty of it) and enjoy nature in a tranquil setting.
