Urupukapuka Bay is one of three campsites on Urupukapuka Island and has room for about 280 people or about 70 tent sites.
Our favourite accommodation, quiet places, cheap, clean, amazing landscapes! Rangers are so friendly! And always toilet paper in restrooms! Sometimes we had hot showers for 50cents, it is good to ask donations and sometimes it is free!
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 79 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Small island, with few people but a lot of sheep and a lot of trails who make you discover all the island. Really nice lookout, beaches and walks!
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 😍
