Camp amongst mountain beech forest, beside a stream.

This is the perfect location for exploring the national park, with a number of easy short walks starting near the holiday park entrance, and the DOC visitor centre across the road.

In winter it’s a good base for skiing and snowboarding on Mt Ruapehu - the Whakapapa Ski Area is just 6 km up the road.
