If you want the ease of lattes, golf and shops mixed with a bit of forest and outdoors goodness, then Wentworth Valley Camping Ground is for you! Close to Whangamata (12kms away). This was once a large gold mining settlement with houses, shops and schools and is now a remote but comfortable campsite. Check out the nearby Wentworth Falls, Wentworth mines and a primo waterhole for swimming.
NOTE - If you have a DOC Conservation Campsite Pass, this is one of the two applicable campsites to incur an extra $5 surcharge.

Awesome spot nestled in the bush, very quiet and peaceful. So nice falling asleep to the sound of a river in the background. Host was lovely and so helpful.
Great campground, dog friendly with a river running along side they can swim in, $2 for a 5 min hot shower, which was hot, free cold showers, less than a 10 minute walk to a great deep swimming hole, lots of places for picnics, the toilets are long drops but for the price they were clean and had air fresheners, very beautiful place to stay, could hear the birds and river all night, take insect repellent!!!
I can‘t understand a ranking with 10!
Yes, the campround itself it peeceful in the forest with nice walks.
BUT: the toilets are arefull and therefore the rate with 15 pp for unpowered is simply to much. There are also some powered sites for 18 pp but the place for them is, compared to unpowered, bit shity.
All in all max overrated
Love this place! Love the host Niki, we come back every year.

Nice quiet campground in lovely surrounding! The price is low, but so do the facilities. Showers are bit old, but ok. But toilets are bit disgusting.recommendable if you don't mind the toilets
For $13 per person it is a nice place, however the toilets are quite average. There are BBQ, 2 basin, 2 showers for $2 for 5 minutes of hot water. 4 sinks with cold water for washing dishes.
Quiet doc campsite a short 10 min drive from Whitianga. The campsite is bordered by dense rainforest and a large stream. There is a field near the wardens office which has hook ups for motor homes and then a little further down the track are a couple of grassy fields with basic, but okay toilets, showers and sinks. There is also a BBQ shelter. The waterfall is 1.5 hours walk, which we alas didn't do, but I did explore in the dark and followed an overgrown trail which leaves the grit road on the left hand side if you're walking from the wardens office back to the camping area just after the bridge. It was signposted to the mines. About 3 mins from the grit track is a damp bank teeming in glow worms.
Beautiful setting and plenty of space in woodland. Good walk to the falls. Hot shower available at $2
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 😍
