The Tekapo B Power Station has a large paved area as well as grass reserve where self-contained motor caravanners can freedom camp.

 

It's an excellent location directly overlooking the lake. There were a few other motorhomes there in early autumn when we called in. 

 

The road alongside the Tekapo Canal is open  to pedestrians and cyclists. Vehicle access is restricted to the upper 7 km and lower 4 km of the road.

 

Fishing in the canal is very popular - the constant flow of oxygen rich alpine water produces some good sized salmon, as well as healthy brown and rainbow trout.
