Description

Freedom camping permitted in designated spaces in the Waipu Caves car park. You may stay a maximum of 1 night. Camping in both self-contained and non self-contained vehicles and also tents is permitted. Be responsible with your waste wherever you camp. Carry in, carry out. Leave no trace. From the caves, a 2-km walk leads you through a picturesque karst limestone landscape across farmland and regenerating bush to a point where you can take in the magnificent views. Within the entrance to the caves themselves, you will find stalactites, stalagmites and glow worms.

Great little spot to see the glow worms. There had been little rain when we went, just went in sliders and no shoes, water was only up to our ankles. Very slippy in the cave though, be careful! Campsite is quiet and dark, toilets weren't the cleanest when we arrived but had been cleaned in the morning.
