Thought this place looked a bit ramshackle when I first got there, but it turned out to be everything you could want for just $10 unpowered. Right next to the beach. Clean facilities. Nice friendly folk. A great place for kids to run around and be safe. Highly recommend.

Cheap campground next to a great beach. The cooking facilities were basic and almost outdoors. Old school washing machine with a ringer. Owner nice and helpful plus there are resident Wekas, this is great to see as they aren't found in a lot of places in NZ. All the facilities were clean and there was plenty of hot water.

We stayed 1 night with powered site in a campervan. Very friendly owner. Basic kitchen facilities but we did not need them. Clean toilets and great shower with hot water! Quiet camp. It is situated on a stunning beach. Our boys swam and boogie boarded. Recommend a stop here.

This site is right on what feels like a never ending, stunning beach. Clean, basic and well maintained facilities but a hidden gem which is well worth visiting. Owners are really welcoming and helpful. Quite a few family vans/batches permanently on site so clearly a well loved placed to stay.

We have been very well welcomed by the owner of the camping ground. For 10 dollars we had a powered emplacement just a few meters from the beach. Hot shower is included and there is a small kitchen area. No check out time, the owner encouraged us to stay as long as we wanted to enjoy the beach. And people in the camping ground were very friendly. I really recommend this motor camp.

First: We didn't stay there so I'm not sure if the second impression would be better.
An open kitchen with cooking plates a fridge and power plugs. Washing machine very (!) old. No drinking water. Toilets looked okay.
Whole camp looked more like a backyard where you can also stay with your van. Two or three very untidy buildings (one was the office) and empty caravans. Very close to the beach.
Price: 10 $ pp (unpowered)
