Lake Tekapo is a large picturesque lake, famous for its stunning views of ancient glacial valleys. It’s also a great place to target brown and rainbow trout from the shore and boat. In the tourist township of Tekapo, there is a boat ramp with one concrete ramp.
Make sure to research the designated yellow zones and keep to the five-knot speed limit. Be extra careful when the water levels are low, and it’s best to use a 4WD when launching and retrieving your boat.
There is parking available adjacent to the ramp.
In the Tekapo township, you will find all the facilities you need: accommodation, shops, restaurants, fuel and toilets.
