Camping gear reminder:
Family and club camping trips to Morison Bush 
Twice a year the Tararua Tramping Club visits the Wairarapa for a club, family and friends camp and get together at Morison Bush, on the first weekend of March and second weekend of December. It's a great trip for young families, teenage families, and club members old and young, who just want to catch up and chill out.
People come and go as they please (but please tell the trip leader your arrival and departure plans), some arrive Friday night, most on Saturday morning. Most return late afternoon on Sunday.
Morison Bush is a camping spot in a bend of the Ruamahanga River.
Some of the many activities are swimming, games (cricket, volleyball), kayaking, blackberry picking (in season), walking, biking, and sometimes playing on the hay bales.
There is a camp fire (conditions permitting) and barbecue for dinner on Saturday night and the kids often have toasted marshmallows for dessert. Accommodation is camping. The camp site is a large flat area under Manuka trees, adjacent to a large loop on the Ruamahanga River. It's a very relaxing spot, there are no facilities, except a temporary long drop toilet which we put in.
Personal gear reminder: Please bring, in a bag or pack, the following:

To get to Morison Bush follow SH2 over the Rimutaka Hill through Featherston to Tauherenikau. Turn right off SH2 at the Tin Hut Pub and continue to head east on to the gravel road. This takes you across to the Greytown to Martinborough road (substation on the corner). Keep going straight ahead past the Bush House Restaurant. Just past here the Greytown - Martinborough road turns right and Glenmorven road is on the left. There is also a sign post "Ruamahanga River Access". Follow Glenmorven road past the wool shed, down the hill and out across the river flats until you reach a gate on the stop bank. From this gate our usual campsite is in the direction of about 10.00 o'clock to just north of where the power line cross the river.
