  The dock at Nelson Lakes National Park
by AKtravelers

The campground at New Zealand's Nelson Lakes National Park may be small, but it is within sight of a beautiful mountain lake and that makes all the difference. We walked to the lakeshore as the last light was leaving the sky and we went to the shore for breakfast the next day. And at all times we could see the lake and mountains from our tent. So, while the campground itself was essentially an open field ringed with sites, we enjoyed it anyway.
