Council-vested camping grounds, all known as Holiday Parks, are located in Taumarunui, Ohakune and Raetihi.
Ruatiti Domain is the only area in the District where freedom camping is permitted by Council. It is well used by fishermen and campers, particularly over the summer months. A Ruatiti Domain Committee, comprising local residents, a Waimarino-Waiouru Community Board members and Council staff, manage the operational issues relating to this property.
It is known that many families return year after year to camp over the summer months. This area has a number of toilet facilities, reticulated raw water and a number of BBQs. The water is taken from a spring located very high on the edge of a cliff of papa rock on the Mangonui O Te Ao River and reticulated toa concrete holding tank located on the Domain. Visitors to the Domain are requested to boil any drinking water.
It should be noted that there is a prohibition of bringing liquor to the Ruatiti Domain for the period from midnight on 30 December until midnight on 2 January annually.
