Koru Campsite

Koru camp is nestled in a sunny, sheltered spot with a backdrop of native bush. An ideal stop for campers who are canoeing the river as well as those who access the property via the aerial cable car.

This is a basic bush campsite but plenty of space and native plantings mean tents need not be squashed together. However, a communal fire pit and benches provide a great social area for the evenings.

The  recently extended kitchen shelter has cold running water, a two burner gas hob and BBQ along with a limited selection of pans. (You are advised to bring your own cooking utensils, plates etc.) Alongside the kitchen is a covered seating area as well as outdoor tables and chairs.            The campsite has two toilets and a shower room as well as a hot shower and a wood fired bath located in the bush.  A range of outdoor games, tree swings and a slide are provided for the children.

Access to our small on-site shop provides the ability for campers to restock and re-hydrate and a fridge next to the shop is available for campers use. Charging facilities and free wi-fi are also available. 

Many come for one night and end up staying several!  Te Araroa Trail walkers and canoeists are welcome and we have easy access from the river. Look for our sign on the right bank past Koriniti. (please note: we do not take advance bookings from TA walkers but there is always room on the campsite)
