50 tent sites? Yeah right. When I arrived there were nowhere near 50 tent sites - nor were there that many tents actually set up and at the time most people were settling down for their dinner etc, yet all the DOC registration forms were all gone, so where did they all go?. Lots of self-contained campervans etc parked up taking spots where those who are camping with tents should be able to park.
DOC needs to rectify this by having separate parking areas for those with campervans and those who don't.
The ground is rocky and uneven, sites are not clearly marked. I know it's a first come first served basis however DOC's information is far too vague. It's a pity because the grounds are located in such a beautiful area close to all tracks. Facilities are pretty good considering it's regarded as a basic camp site. There is room for improvement though. 10 bucks per person per night.
I've slept in nicer spots for free - thousands of feet above sea level! Come on DOC.
