Hydroelectric power station on the Waikato River in the North Island of New Zealand, midway between Taupo, Rotorua, and Hamilton. Commissioned in 1961, as part of the Waikato power scheme. Lake Ohakuri covers 12 sq km and is the largest lake on the Waikato River. Both the reserve and the lake are used for boating and waterskiing. Due to electricity generation, the lake levels tend to rise and fall radically from time to time. Barbeques and picnic tables are available, also public toilets and a boat ramp.
