We were advised to look at Lake Tekapo on the way to Mount Cook, great, but the best lake was the one we drove round to get here, Lake Pukaki, fantastic start to a great campsite. A long road to get to the foot of the mountains but well worth it. The campsite is, as most DOC sites are, quite basic, water not to be drunk etc and toilets, well, whatever. If you are self contained these sites are the best to stay on. We actually witnessed an avalanche in the evening which was amazing.
Having done a huge walk to the foot of Mount Cook over swing bridges, rocks, climbing, paddling etc (supposedly one of their easy walks!!!) to see Icebergs etc, it was just great sitting by the mountains with a beer taking in the magnificent scenery. Would really recommend this site to any fellow camper.

If u are on campervan or camping, this is the best place to start out your explorations. The campsite is located right on the walks and you have wondrous views first thing in the morning. While it may be cold at the foot of the mountain, nothing beats the convenience of a leisurely walk at your own pace and returning to your site as late as u possibly can. The water is ultra clean as told by a DOC staff I met there. Cost me $10. Dear for a DOC site but the amenities were in excellent condition. Go for the kea point track if u want an easy walk with great views. A thigh torturing walk on sealy tarns track is the quickest way to get up high for awesome views. And the hooker valley track was also quite tiring and wet but rewards with close up glacier views. All these are atvthe doorstep of this campsite.

This camp site is in a scenic location at Mt Cook and only a few minutes drive from Mt Cook Village. The fee for 2 adults and one child was $25 per night. There are very basic facilities here which is no problem if you have a self contained motor home. Just pay the fee and choose a spot. There are toilets, no showers, water and a large picnic shelter. This room has sinks, tables but no cooking facilities. There are plenty of walks in the area and the scenery is stunning.

Room Tip: arrive in daylight to choose a site to park your motorhome.
