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.
