Ian’s Caving Camp

Site Information

Address:  Off Waipu Caves Road, Waipu (road access at Point A on above map)

Website: There is no official website for this campsite.

About the site

Access is up a rough track from the unsealed road (point A in map above); take care about where you drive and park so as not to get stuck.  When approaching from Auckland, the entrance on the right is hard to spot.  If you cross the single-lane wooden bridge then you have gone too far – the track there leads to the owners’ house.  Consider using Google Streetview on the above map to see what the turning looks like.

This campsite is recently constructed, and has a simple toilet block, and running water.  Parking is limited, and vehicles with low ground clearance should be cautious.

This site is close to the Waipu Caves, though the main public campground is further along the road.

There is no mobile phone reception on the site.
