Visting Moke Lake was serenity and tranquility mixed into one. No sounds besides the random cars that may or may not come down the road. Amazing, breathtaking scenery that needs to seen for yourself along with walking tracks that would be great I imagine. The...More

A hidden gem. Quiet walk with exceptional scenery. Easy access from Queenstown. Few people there. Easy walk.

What a beautiful place to camp! Running water and long-drop loos comprise the facilities, but what a location! Track is a bit rocky and we were a little nervous about our tyres but they were fine in the end and it was more than worth...More

One of the things I was really hoping to see while in NZ was Kea birds. They are alpine parrots. We didn't see any in Franz Josef, Fox Glacier, or Milford Sound but we were thrilled to spot them at Moke Lake. We absolutely did...More

Beautiful tranquil spot with DOC facilities. Would be an amazing to relax and unwind but you must have plenty of insect repellent and keep car windows and doors shut.

The road has improved a lot since our last visit, very accessible now. A beautiful lake, on a still day has amazing reflections. Great for a walk . Lots of birds about too if you like birds.

We bought a picnic which meant at one stage warding off the ducks but what a lovely and wild spot. Lake is lovely and the mountains stark. Just remember to pack insect repellent as there were a lot of sandflies biting the day we arrived.

This is a relatively short drive from Queenstown. Very picturesque mountain lake. The last part of the road is unsealed and quite narrow, but there is reasonable forward visibility

Only a 20 minute drive out of Queenstown you will find Moke lake and the campsite, which has wheelchair accessible toilets and some basins for washing in another building. You can park for free anywhere around the campsite if you are visiting for the day....More

For the majority of the year a normal sedan will be fine. Don't drive it during the winter if there is snow & ice without having snow chains. Enjoy the drive up to the lake as much as the lake it's self.
