This little camp is centrally located to Pipiriki, the Mt Ruapehu ski fields and the Tongariro Crossing, with world-class fishing available 25km away at the Manganui-O-Te-Ao River. Tidy grounds have easy access through a glade of trees to a lower tenting area, where you can enjoy a romantic evening with the sound of the river nearby or take an evening glow-worm lit fairy trail stroll along the ten minute bush walk. The kitchen and dining block is wheelchair accessible and has ranch sliders opening to a large deck and outdoor BBQ area. The ablutions are free with a roomy and modern shower and a disabled access suite, as well as an older block at the other end of the camp. Ben and Rebecca are your hosts and they can arrange canoe, kayak and jet boating tours, tramping and mountain biking as part of the adventure tourism run from the site. All sites cost from $10 per person, with a dump station available free to guests.
