Nearby Places of Interest:

Takakawa Falls:

Sam Wallis says: "If you think Niagara Falls are even remotely interesting you should see these."
The turnoff is probably 30 minutes east of the camp - less than 1 hour detour total - but you want some time at the falls. No trailers allowed on the road. There is a space to drop trailers.

I would highly recomend that any group who wants to see the mountains try this. I would also recomend a detour to takakawa falls on the way there. the turnoff is probably 30 minuts east of the camp, its less than 1 hour detour total, but you want some time at the falls. the only difficulty is no trailers allowed on the road. there is a space to drop trailers though, and its worth it. if you think niagra falls are even remotly interesting you should see these.
Truth is a perception, and a individual perception is their truth
