Greyneys Shelter
The shelter


Greyneys Camping Ground is a small campsite right next to the main road surrounded by large trees. Quite boggy in the middle. This is the starting spot for several walks. There is a shelter to cook in, but not to stay in.....!

Small area beside the road with space for about 5 vehicles if parked close together. Lots of sand flies too.

Close to arthur's pass village when plenty of walks start.

Right next to the highway and SANDFLIES. Sandflies up the wazoo. Shelter with fireplace was nice, but so many sandflies. The sandflies were horrendous. Only stay here if you like sandflies.

Not a bad spot for free.There is a big shelter there built from stones with a fireplace for communal gatherings. Basic toilet.Negatives are that it's right on the road and a busy railway nearby.
