Whanganui River Adventures & Pipiriki Campinground


What to immerse yourself in the remote splendour of Whanganui National Park, the river and chat to the locals then this is the place to be. A classic campground with powered and non-powered sites.

Whanganui River Adventures owns and operates Pipiriki Camping Grounds. Nau Mai, Haere mai (Welcome, welcome).

Your local Tangata Whenua (home people) Hosts – Ken and Josephine Haworth descend from local Hapu (sub-tribe) – Nqati Kurawhatia & Iwi – Te Atihaunui a-papa-rangi (local tribe).

As part of the Whanganui River Adventures this is a perfect opportunity kayak the river, walk to the Bridge to Nowhere and explore the Whanganui River Rd. A bonus is relatively good access to Mt Ruapehu (Turoa ski field) in the winter ski season (approximately 1 hour drive).

Facilities are shared kitchen, lounge. Cooking equipment available for hire. Hot showers included in tariff.


Pipiriki Camping Grounds is also only a 5 minute walk to the Whanganui River, great for the summer time swimming. Ask at our Booking Office about our Canoe / Kayaking tours, stunning scenic jetboat tours, Mountain Bike and walking tracks in the area, this is ONLY a few of the many options or just come and relax here at our secluded campground.
