Kidds Bush is a lovely DOC campground at the north end of Lake Hāwea, accessed on Meads Road from Stare Highway 6. There is an attractive beach and two native nature (forest) walks next to the campground.
The first of the walks is a Nature Track, a short loop that provides an introduction to native forest. The second walk, Sawyer Burn Track, is the more substantial and climbs almost 600 metres to above the bush line to Sayer Burn Hut.
A nice spot for a picnic, or to spend a few days, with good support facilities.
