Lyell campsite | Kahurangi National Park, almost
What’s worse? Sharing this campsite with the swarms of sandflies, or the many camper vans, or car campers who find it a cheap and convenient campsite just off the Buller Gorge highway, at the southern start of the Old Ghost Road.
There is a convenient insect screened shelter with two large tables to avoid the sandflies, but the car travellers maybe harder to avoid.
