Lake Tutira Camping Area, SH 2, Tutira, 4181, New Zealand, Gisborne, Hawkes Bay, North Island


A stunning lakeside camp set in a wildlife refuge, about 50 minutes drive north
of Napier. No motorboats are allowed on the lake, but sails, oars or paddles
are fne, ensuring this is kept a quiet, relaxed environment. The lovely lakeside
setting has resident swans and many shady willow trees to camp under. There
is a picnic shelter, tap water (which must be boiled), eco-toilets and permanent
BBQs. No fres please. August to September the camp is closed for the
lambing season and at times the lake can suffer from toxic algal blooms (do
not enter the water if signs advise against it). A suggested tariff of $5 per night
per person is to be paid into honesty box on-site.
