Patea Dam is run and funded by the South Taranaki District Council, there’s always something special about locally owned sites like this. It’s a very secluded property and is home to New Zealand’s longest man-made lake. It’s been claimed by the locals who have visited Patea Dam that they have the cleanest facilities ever seen at a camp ground, that’s definitely something to be proud of! If you have a love of hiking and want to introduce it to the kids, there is a 40 minute bush loop walk on the other side of the dam.
