Going fishing



The DOC Campsite off Brett Rd is right on the shores of Lake Rerewhakaaitu with stunning views over the lake and on grass parking.


This is a popular locatoin, with good fishing, swimming, and walks around the lake. It was already quite busy when we called by in early summer.


The usual DOC fees apply, which can be paid at the self-registration kiosk.

There are no rubbish bins so your closest option is the Guy Roe reserve on Brett Road. There are a few water taps around the place but I expect they are bore water so they recommend boiling to kill germs. Geoffrey Brown, Papamoa, NZ.

There is no shop anywhere close. Your nearest option would be Benny Bee on the way to Taupo so come prepared with food as it will be approx a 45km round trip to get anything once here. The shop that used to be by the Rerewhakaaitu school has long ago closed down. Geoffrey Brown, Papamoa, NZ.
