Directions to Moke Lake
Just a 10 minute drive from Queenstown, Moke Lake is a beautiful scenic spot off the beaten track. The pretty lake setting is framed by mountains and is a popular spot for walking, cycling and camping.
The Moke Lake Loop Track is a popular scenic trek with the locals and loops around the lake for a walk that takes around 2 hours to complete. The lake is also a draw for fishing, and on warmer days, the temperate of the water is perfect for a dip.
Moke Lake's close proximity to Queenstown, yet secluded setting, is an appealing quality to campers. The small campsite is run by the Department of Conservation and has basic facilities. It's the views not the facilities though which campers appreciate.
For an even better view of what to expect, view our Moke Lake video guide..
From Queenstown, drive along the road to Glenorchy for about ten minutes before turning off on the right for the road signposted 'Moke Lake Road'. You'll then drive up a steep and windy road before you reach an unsealed gravel road. You will need to drive along the unsealed road for about 8 kilometres, passing the smaller Lake Kirpatrick, before you arrive at Moke Lake.
