Rakaia Gorge Camp

It's a great spot, formed in 1997 essentially as a fishing and jet boater's camping ground to provide safe, comfortable camping facilities for members and the public.  The camp has a beautiful view of the river. The grounds and facilities are immaculate, and it's a great spot to disconnect, enjoy the ever-changing river and magnificent night sky.

Our visitors usually get the best views looking directly over the bright blue water of the gorge.
