A wonderful walk
Like any camping area New Zealand has a Rangers who are responsible for care and access control. It is advisable to book, 5 euros/person. Generally camping areas are in parks or nature reserves, and only have water. Access is prohibited to dogs, and fire is not allowed under any circumstances. There are information points with pamphlets and detailed explanations of places to visit in and around the trails in the area. The trail markings are magnificent, the times and approximate length of the trails are provided. Following the river that surrounds this camp, one can walk the Karamatura loop trail which, as in most parks, is in perfect condition.
