Rangipo Desert/Tukino Skifield

Turned off SH1 on the Desert Road and took the Tukino Access Road to the ski field. 7.5 Kms of very basic road, had to drive most of the way in first gear so that pots and pans didn’t self destruct. This would be the most basic DOC camp ever. Mainly a place to leave 2WD vehicles as the track deteriorates after this point.

Not a lot of trees in this campsite
