    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 10 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 10 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 10 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 10 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 10 years ago
