Camp on private flats along the river, or tuck in closer to the actual shelter which is a great place to cook in if the weather turns nasty. Amazing views out over the whole valley; Andrews Shelter Camping Ground is a popular starting point for trampers heading to Casey Hut.
Get off the main road (SH73) and head along Mount White Road until the end.

Great spot, about a 15 minute drive on a dirt road off the highway. You cross a small bridge towards the end and you’ll see a big grass area by the river and it’s all fair game. Beautiful scenery, definitely worth the drive out. There is a drop toilet and access to an indoor cooking room as well.
Beware the sandflys though, they will rush your camper the second the door is opened the closer you are to the river.

Nice secluded location, clean and good for campfires as it wasn't too windy when we went.
Contains a covered shelter for eating and long drop toilet which was reasonably clean.
We parked by the creek and was fantastic to open the doors to it.
Also note there was about a 15+ minute gravel drive from the main road.

Amazing views, a very quite place. Perfect for a wild experience.
There are a toilet and a shelter available, but they weren't clean.
Remote and peaceful spot, no network coverage but beautiful views. Campground on gras, space for approx. 10 Campervans. Longdrop toilet and a shelter available. Be aware of the pretty long gravel road leading to the campground.
Amazing views.......well worth the drive, this must be the sandfly equivalent of London..... so many it wasn't worth sitting outside for long due to so many bites.
Awesome spot, no one else there apart from a few cars doing the overnight trek. So quiet and a good first stop out of Christchurch.
Clean washrooms but need to let people know the times for the train.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
