Lake Gunn Day Use Area

Coordinates: -44.856930, 168.103010

The Lake Gunn Day Use Area at the head of the lake is at the site of Mud Camp. Nothing remains of the camp. In its days as a road camp, workers would cart gravel to keep their belongings out of the mud in the bottom of their tents.

Access is now very good and it is a classic photo stop which in my opinion is best in soft cloudy light, but should be good at any time. In the summer look out for the beautiful small purple flowers of the tree fuscia.

It is not a place that gets much sun in the winter but over summer it may be the best picnic spot on the Milford Road. There are DOC toilets available. Camping is not allowed.
