I am planning a trip for Feb 2014 (okay, I know it a little early, but I'm having fun). I plan to spend two nights in Tangarire and am researching accommodations. In some places I am reading that the northern part of the park is really overrun with vehicles and people and staying in the southern part of the park is then worth the extra $$ to avoid the crowds. I know that Tangarire is at is best June to November. So will there be fewer people/vehicles there in February? Or is there a rather constant flow of people there year-round?
