The Orari Gorge campsite is quite small but is very well set up with flush toilets and a good water supply. There is plenty of grass for camping but in October the grounds were a bit soggy. The Orari Gorge walking track climbs up onto the ridge-line behind the camp. This site is a little "off the beaten track" with a few kilometres of good gravel road to reach it. A quiet and inexpensive spot not far from the Canterbury plains Inland Tourist Route.

This campsite was great! We visited in March time and there was only one other couple in the campsite. Very quiet, and well kept.

Quiet campsite at the end of a road. Was not busy and has a beautiful rainforest walk. It was $8/night as of Feb 2017.

Nice small campground. Toilets were ok. On the way back we stopped at the raspberry farm and picked our own raspberries. Delicious!

We saw the reviews & decided to give it a go. It's small but there was more than enough space between spots. Two other groups were there too. But we hardly noticed them. Not overly scenic as just a bush line & grass surrounded by farmland. But ok to get away from it all. Not many bugs thankfully! Had clean toilet that flushed & toilet paper as well as a tap for water (needed boiling). BBQ tables were handy for use. Enjoyed the experience over all & lots of bird life. Bush walk was short & easy too
