The camp is easily accessible on sealed roads from Highways 2 and 50, just 15 minutes along Wakarara Rd. It is situated close to the Ruahine Ranges and Forest Park, with easy access to both the Waipawa and Makaroro River catchments.
Set in seven acres, the camp was set up as an Outdoor Education facility for schools. More recently it has been used by a wide variety of different interest groups.
