From Putāruru to Arohena Campground via Arapuni St and Mangare Rd:
The last 1 km is a sharp descent down a metal road to the campsite. Smaller vehicles towing caravans or boats may struggle with traction when attempting to leave the campsite. Large motor homes/caravans/towed boats may struggle to get around tight corners on the road.
On the Waikato River there is no formal boat ramp but a pumice beach to land and launch.
