There are two camping grounds in Tōtara Reserve, one large site (Kererū) on the northern side and a smaller site (Kahikatea) across the road to the east, both with BBQ and ablution facilities. The newer Kererū site offers easy river access for swimming, while the older Kahikatea site provides a sense of nostalgia and seclusion.
Both camping grounds are open each year from Labour Weekend through to Easter. Check in is 1pm and check out is by 12pm.
Please note that no companion animals, other than disability assist dogs, are permitted within the Reserve. Please advise staff at the time of booking if you require an exemption for an aid dog.
For more detailed information about sites, please see our Terms, Conditions and Safety page.
