    There is plenty of space around the actual hut although the ground is a bit sloping in places.
    Here are some pictures of the area

    There are nicer sites down the valley a bit further near Lake Ball.

    There are no camping platforms near Dixon's Kingdom hut, the closest platforms are near Herods Gate. over 9 years ago

    just a warning, the pencil pine forest right near the hut is a veritable human turd farm. When I was last there you could barely walk a few metres without seeing another poorly-buried dump. I would recommend going a little bit further down the valley. You can stay in the hut itself if you wanted, but a tent is probably nicer. over 9 years ago

    I've only ever been there in mid-winter when there was lots of snow. Pitching a tent was so unattractive at the time that me and my cousin just went into the (freezing) hut.

    I imagine that it would be a human turd farm around that area (it was frozen when I went so I didn't really notice. I reckon Dixon's Kingdom is a place where they really should be putting at least a hol-in-the-ground toilet. Unpleasant, but still better than digging a hole in the snow and root-laden frozen dirt. over 9 years ago

    They don't want to put a "hole in the ground toilet" at Dixons because that would encourage people to camp there and they probably are trying to do the opposite because of the wet terrain over 9 years ago

    I would recommend Lake Ball over Dixons Kingdom any day. Either on the eastern edge or in the clearing on the northside of the lake at -41° 50' 36.30", +146° 17' 28.74". Neither are that far from Dixon's, and both are much nicer! over 9 years ago
