Klondyke Corner Camping Ground is a large open campsite surrounded by large trees creating a good sheltered spot. It is right on the banks of the Waimakariri River and is very popular in the summer. There is a large shelter with picnic tables in it - watch for the sneaky kea's that will try and steal your lunch.....!

Nice site but so many sandflies we had to leave after 5 minutes!
Also, not a free camp, 8 dollars pp makes it a bit expensive for a family, especially as you cannot even be outside your campervan.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
No longer a free site, $8pp and you can pay via eftpos or credit at the info center in Arthur's pass. Lovely big field with beautiful views. Two long drops and a covered space for cooking/eating. Sandflies were okay as long as you stayed where it was windy.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
TOO MANY SANDFLIES. Great effort by the council but sadly too many sandflies to even sit out and have a drink :( loved this campsite so was a real shame. Beautiful setting, great shelter for cooking and standard portaloo.
Paid campsite, 2 long drops nice and clean. River nearly dry but still plenty of sandflies. Lovely view and not too noisy even though close to the road.
No longer a free site. $8/pp.
Now a Paid campsite, 8$ pp. Clean toilet. Some sandflies, but if you stay at a windy spot they are no problem. No cellphonereach.
Quite place close to the river. Toilets are very basics. This campsite isn't free anymore so it's a bit pricey for the spot
Great spot, fantastic views of the river and the mountains, a little noise from the road and the odd train but nothing too much, loads of room, there were only 5 campers and some people tenting, great spot for family's to run a muck
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 😍
