Welcome Flat campsite | Copland Track
Eight almost level campsites have been created in the tussock to allow tents to be pitched. None are particularly sheltered from the weather and wind. The toilets are shared with the hut, ie, some distance away that is not convenient at night. No picnic tables, or other facilities.
The campsite however has a hugely spectacular backdrop.
