To keep the group together - there is an unpowered sites area.  You may choose to select where you want to stay but you can be slotted very far from the main group . I do believe there is one powered site 50 metres from the unpowered sites area where the group would be located if you need a powered site.

Please note this area comes alive at this time of year and many parks are near capacity.

 

 

 

Do bring recovery gear , shovels and maxtrax for those that have them.

 

Bring food , water and drink for your duration however long you may decide to stay.

 

If you want to fish - bring some fishing rods and tackle.

Depending on numbers - we can arrange appropriate caravan park site - camping ground format or even possibly look into campsites or even cabins.

Some caravan/camping sites allow campfire/dogs but being summer will need to confirm.

Update : NO Pets or Campfire .
