Today’s photo of the week was taken at Ottos/Macdonalds Campsite, an easily accessible campsite at the northern end of Lake Mapourika near Franz Josef.
The campsite is surrounded by Westland Tai Poutini National Park and is a popular spot for travellers and fishermen.
DOC is currently looking for campsite hosts to volunteer for two weeks or more at Ottos/Macdonalds Campsite over the 2016/2017 summer period.
Campsite host tasks include ticket collection, providing information to visitors and cleaning of the facilities.
For further information and to volunteer, visit the DOC website.
It is a gorgeous campsite and beautiful lake. Campers should be extremely happy to be able to stay in such a gorgeous area.
