Lake Camp Otautari
Heading west along the Hakatere Potts Road is Lake Camp Otautari. This lake is just before you arrive at Lake Clearwater. As its name suggests, there is a large freedom campground and facilities and a track runs around the lake.
The beaches are better at Lake Camp Otautari than at the adjacent Lake Clearwater. But this is also one of the few lakes in the Ashburton Lakes region where you can use a powered boat. It therefore tends to be less peaceful than the other lakes.
