A caravan and tent are pictured sitting in water on the edge of Lake Aviemore, at the popular Waitangi camping area.
Following recent heavy rainfall in the mountains, South Island hydro lakes are full, with excess water being spilled.
Earlier this week, police warned anyone camping in low-lying areas of the Waitaki Valley to be aware of rising river levels and take precautions.
Yesterday, Constable Craig Bennett said between six and eight tents and caravans were on the waterline at Te Aka and Waitangi.
The tents and caravans had been left for long periods.
