Totara Camping Area

Coordinates: -45.074710, 167.986280

Totara is a medium sized camping area with good access for large vehicles and 2 DOC toilets for campers not in self contained camper vans.

I was unable to find a Totara tree at Totara. Totara is a podocarp, producing an edible primitive cone. The only native tree in New Zealand that grows in stands and heavily exploited in the past. European settlers used it as a construction timber. Maori used it as a carving timber and for waka (canoes), among other uses.

Adults $13/night, 5-17 years 1/2 price, infants free, payment is cash except over the summer when a DOC warden will visit and can accept payment by card.
