Cobb Tent Camp | Kahurangi National Park
Tent camps were common accommodation for government employed hunters back in the early deer culling days. Canvas was strung up on locally prepared timber and could be transferred from place to place as required.
Cobb Tent Camp was among the last constructed in New Zealand, back in the late 70s and transferred to this site in 1985. It was completely rebuilt in 2014 and is the last remaining example of a tent camp in New Zealand. And yes, you can stay here.
