Being within nature......
There are 3 camping areas set in a valley with karst limestone rocks, a small river and beautiful native bush. The camp is a dark skies camp where you can see lots of stars. Self contained motorhomes stay in one area set aside for them the longest sites are 25m long and 4m wide, while small ones are 8m long and 6m wide. Tents site are spacious. There is a camp kitchen, flush toilets and $2 coin showers. As a growing business open in 2023 we are doing some minor construction on the 320 acre property.
Supporting Northland Land SAR (Search and Rescue) and Police SAR.
Search and Rescue happens in NZ with the use of both the Police and the volunteers of Land SAR.
For some years Ian Fox (owner of Waipu Caves Farm Park) has been involved in Northland Land SAR, particularly in cave rescue.
From 2019 until June 2023 he was coordinator of training the cave rescue team, mostly using the various caves on the property.
In addition the Police SAR team also use Waipu Caves Farm Park 320 acre property for various training events.
With Ian stepping aside from actively coordinating training, he and Waipu Caves Farm Park still support the Northland Land SAR team and the Police SAR team with the free use of the property for training for various rescue scenario's and skills training by utilising the natural environments of caves, cliffs, bush and river along with the infrastructure of the campground, buildings, bush tracks, farm roads and paddocks etc.
