Lake Paringa

Lake Paringa is the second of the modest picturesque lakes along State Highway 6, heading north to Hokitika. It is surrounded by pristine native forest, and a DOC camping area is immediately off the highway. This might be the best place to camp when driving through the Haast to Lake Paringa region, although there will probably be a few sandflies.

You can easily access the lake with a boat from the campground, but there are no walking tracks around the lake.
