About Camp Epic

Camp Epic is the newest accommodation on NZ's best 2 day ride, The Timber Trail. Camp Epic is a one of a kind experience located right on the trail near the halfway point. Stay in one of our large twin bed canvas safari tents or in our new family canvas tents. Drift off to sleep to the sound of Ruru calls on our super comfy warm beds. You'll spend the evening relaxing around the camp fire toasting marshmallows under the starry sky.  Refresh in what we claim to be the best hot showers in NZ that overlook the stunning native forest. Other facilities include flushing toilets, a fully equipped communal kitchen and dining area, and ebike charging station.
We have everything you need for a comfortable camping experience.


You meet us in Ongarue by 8.30am on day 1 of your ride. We shuttle you to the start of the Trail at Pureora and you are on your bike on the Trail by 10am. A separate shuttle takes your overnight bags and food/drinks to Camp Epic. On Day 2 you head out from Camp Epic when you please to ride the remainder of the Trail. You then finish your ride where you parked in Ongarue with your luggage returned there waiting for you.

​Package includes 1 nights accommodation, shuttle from Ongarue to Pureora and luggage transfers. Packages are self-catered, please bring your own food and drinks to be transferred, although a help yourself breakfast and hot drinks are provided at camp. All bedding and towels also provided with glamping option.
