Campsite Kiosk and honesty box for paying to camping fee
Long drop toilet
Limited water supply
The Mangawhero DOC Campsite is set in native bush just off the Ohakune Mountain Rd, on the way to the Ruapehu ski fields.
It's a small campsite, with parking arranged in a circle, and a long-drop toilet, should it be needed.
There is a limited supply of water available. However, it's not suitable for refilling your water tank as it should be boiled before drinking.
This is a good base camp for skiing enthusiasts, only a short drive from Ohakune, and a 20 minute drive up to the Turoa ski field.
We were able to drive up there in our front-wheel drive motorhome, but there was no snow on the road, and it was a good sealed surface all the way. You'd want to be sure the the conditions were ok before doing the same, as there is only limited room for turning around in a large van.
