This picnic and camping area is alongside the Lindis River and remains of the historic Lindis Pass Hotel. A short walk from the campsite takes you to an historic hut once belonging to “Wattie” Thompson, the last miner to work this area.
For your safety, it is recommended you not camp under the trees.
The DOC Campsite Pass can be used at this campsite.
From SH 8 take Old Faithful Rd opposite Timburn Rd.
