Stayed at the free Doc camp ground, nice and secluded with two fire pits and a river by your feet to enjoy. Just remember to bring loo paper as was none in the long drop. Near the end of Takaputahi Rd well past the campground is a water crossing that could be good for practice. I didn’t cross the river to Otipi track as was by myself and there was certainly some current and depth to it.
