Department of Conservation Maharanui DOC Campsite New Zealand

Maharanui DOC Campsite

Department of Conservation Maharanui DOC Campsite in the Whanganui National Park near Taumarunui and Whakahoro on the River Journey, Ruapehu, New Zealand.

Department of Conservation campsites are popular with Kiwis and can be crowded in peak seasons. Some require booking but most are first-come-first-served, which means get there early or have alternatives ready. Probably the cheapest accommodation to be found, they are perfect for campervans or those traveling on a budget with a car and tent. Prices and details can change, use the links below for the latest information and any current alerts in the area.
