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 inconvenient at night. No picnic tables or other facilities.

The campsite, however, has a hugely spectacular backdrop.
