Kia ora koutou,
As you will be aware campsites over the Easter period are almost fully booked which means there is no room for additional campers either without a booking, or choosing to stay at a campsite different to their booking. Obviously if people are staying at a different campsite due to injury or adverse weather conditions then this is ok, but please encourage people to stick to their booked campsites. We are aiming to have a DOC presence on the awa over the Easter period to check bookings at the campsites without rangers.
There has been a delay in finalising approvals for the John Coull toilet upgrade which was scheduled to begin in April. Therefore we wanted to let you know that bookings for John Coull hut will be open from tomorrow (Tuesday) for the period 1 April – 25th April.
