As you pass through Huntly, look for the TransitNZ camp signs on the northern outskirts. Nestled on the shores of Lake Hakanoa (not suitable for swimming), lies a delightful small camp, hidden away from the passing traffic. On the grassy banks overlooking the lake are 49 sites with power and plenty of room for tents. Well-groomed and level, they come with their own friendly Pukeko who live in the lake-edge wetlands. A nearby domain offers pleasant gardens, the town swimming pool and an excellent playground for children. Enjoy a loop walk round the lake to the ‘Green Cathedral’. The amenities are immaculate and have free showers. The kitchen has plenty of bench space, cooking appliances and some crockery and cutlery. An automatic laundry and dump point are provided. The camp can accommodate large vehicles. Your friendly hosts are Carol and Dave Franks.
