Ramanui Campsite has been significantly upgraded over the past season.
As well as the original 6-bed cabin it now has another three large cabins that will sleep from 6 to 8 each.
Joe and Mandy have also built a huge covered in cooking area with large benches and tables all round. They have also built, “or just putting in the finishing touches” to to a covered in shower block. It will have two showers, “coin or token operated” with both running off a hot water system. Cost for the showers will probably be $3. If we do the token side of things, canoeists will be able to purchase them from the lodge upon arrival.
Cost for the cabins will be $25 per person (compared with $32 pp at Tieke). Each cabin will have fresh water. The cabins contain tables and chairs. The cooking area has barbecues, gas rings, sinks and running cold water.
A tenting area is also available at $10 per person ($14 pp at Tieke).
The whole campground area has been fenced to keep out stock.
So, if you want a hot shower, or a cold beer; neither of which is available across the river, then you should book Ramanui rather than Tieke for your last night on the river.
