Camping NZ NEW

Welcome to New Zealand's most comprehensive database of freely available camping information. This is the only travel map of its kind in NZ.


Martins Bay offers a welcome coastal escape only an hour north of central Auckland.

Located on the edge of a long stretch of sandy beach Martins Bay offers safe swimming, beautiful views, and brilliant fishing with Kawau Island and the Hauraki Gulf at your doorstep. Our closest towns are Warkworth, Matakana and Snells Beach.

We're open 8am to 7pm daily from Easter to October, and until 8pm in Summer months.

We sell cold drinks, ice-creams, bags of party and salt ice and a good range of fishing bait from reception.


Camp in style in a beachfront caravan - or if you have lots of friends one of the family caravans! Choose from a great range of accommodation options and sites to choose from - you will find much more than just the basic camping facilities.

We also offer caravan and boat storage for guests who want to make regular trips without towing the caravan or boat back and forth every time. Daily, weekly and monthly rates available.

If you love sleeping by the sea, but taking the tent seems like too much effort, then glamping could be for you. We offer pre-erected tents 5m dome tents complete with proper beds! Come glamping and you'll have more time to get out exploring.

Mainly semi perm vans but where they put campers is nice grassy area, a cple right on water. Bathroom & kitchen was good. Right on the most beautiful beach. Top location for a camp. Was only $20 for power on my own. Very nice staff.

Unfortunately we didn't get to stay at the campsite as no one answered the ph throughout the whole week I had been calling. When looking into the website it kept showing cabins & camp sites available so we still went but upon arriving just after closing hours no one answered after hours doorbell (clearly states after hours bell).

We had 3 families with us & finished a long drive so we camped at the beach for the night before heading off again the next day.

Luckily the beach is too beautiful to pass & surrounding areas or this would have ruined our trip!

This Campingplace has a nice beach, warm showers for 50 cent/5 min. A big kitchen with a fridge, a freezer many cooking places for free use. Also there are washing machines and drier.
The employee are very friendly and helped us a lot.
We stayed here by tent and exceeded ur stay for two days because it was such a nice place.
I can really recommend this place!

Stayed here camping during the end of Summer, really lovely place. Facilities are large, clean, and well presented. The grounds man was really friendly and filled with knowledge as he had been there for a while. Many permanent caravans, and was only a short walk to the beach from where we were based. We stayed near a drive where in the morning a couple of tractors were taking out boats but it wasn’t too noisy for long. Great place, will definitely go back.

Lovely location with sites right on the beach. Multi acre site has numerous permanent caravans so resembles a small village- was mostly empty in early March. Tenting area is fairly open but beach sites are shady. Lots of clean cooking space in the big kitchen. Showers (6) are fifty cents/5 mins. Common room and picnic table eating areas are indoor/covered. Kayaks and SUPs for hire at the office but no food supplies. Friendly ducks and bunnies on site but Chris asks don't feed them please.

Excellent campground. Really surprised us as wasn't too sure as it was council run. Got to be honest I think this is right up there with being one of the best we have stayed in. Only thing I would say, is it would be great if kids were allowed their bikes there, a trampoline, pool would be added advantages. Totally recommend. People really lovely and helpful. Amenties were excellent. Will be back for sure

We spent March 2013 travelling around North Island in a large self-contained camper van. We visited a lot of different camping places and holiday parks and we’ve reviewed them all for Rankers. We judged them by different criteria from most people. We weren’t interested in playgrounds, paddling pools, trampolines, or all the other facilities for children. Instead we wanted peace and tranquillity, a beautiful location, clean and accessible facilities, and a decent amount of space between sites. We used the holiday parks mostly for one night stops and did not consider them as holiday destinations in their own right. Please read the following review with this in mind.

It’s a big place and it was pretty crowded, especially the beachfront sites, of which we had the last one that was available. Right on the beach. A lot of not well looked after permanent caravans rather spoil the place, but the facilities were good and we spent a pleasant night by the water.

Reception extremely friendly and helpful. Playground close by. Not a pretty campground but position great. Our 3 year old loved playing on the beach although very muddy! 50c/shower. Facilities not the cleanest we experienced.

Enjoyed the stay but quite crowded and camp sites are packed very close together. If you can get a beach spot, its quite nice. Facilities were very good.
