About this campsite

Getting there

From Amberley, follow Douglas Road, then Cramptons Bush Road until the road reaches the Lake Janet picnic area (17 km from Amberley). Turn left into Mount Grey Road, then right into Okuku Road to reach Grey River Campsite and picnic area (3.5 km from the the Lake Janet picnic area). Just before the picnic area is a concrete ford over the Grey River – it may become impassable after heavy rain.

These roads pass through a commercial forest and may be closed at times of extreme fire danger, during high winds or for logging operations. For the latest road conditions, phone Rayonier NZ Ltd, +64 3 310 7612.
