Loved it. Basic DOC site with better than average facilities and a great location. Great place to just chill out.
Awesome DoC campsite by the beach. This is how campsites should be, great friendly camp manager, awesome location next the beach and plenty of sites.
Pros: cheap, great location, wildlife, great sites with every one with a water tap. Friendly helpful camp manager.
Cons: basic facilities, but you’d expect that given it’s a standard site. Can get rather busy with day trippers on the weekends taking up sites for a picnic.
A popular place by the beach. Large area ,plenty of places to park. We parked on the higher ground at the end by the new toilet block. Great views . A great stop off .
As others have described a beautiful stretch of quiet sandy coastline with lots of grass sites looking directly onto the beach. In July 2020 looked as tho some sites were boggy. Clean flushing toilets. Medium height bushes provide some shade and privacy and some picnic tables available. No hot or potable water. If you are short on green vegetables take a walk beyond the end of the road .... there’s self sown silver beet all over!
Beautiful location with parking spots right on the water. We found a wonderful private spot to park near the higher toilet block and it was magical to fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake up to a beautiful sunrise. Toilet block was clean and simple. Cold showers which we didn't use. Bring your own hand soap and drinking water or boil the water provided. Highly recommend this place, only reason to not give a 10 was that it was very windy when we were there but still fabulous!
Lovely little DOC-run campsite with two blocks of toilets and cold showers. There are a few different areas suitable for campervan a or tents, most with water views.
Most sites face north/east so keep that in mind during windy weather.
Have stayed here twice and enjoyed it both times!
Excellent DOC campsite. $8 per adult with clean toilets and cold showers available.
Plenty of beach front sites, was nice to fall asleep listening to the waves.
Right next to the beach along a strip of grass. We arrived around 6pm and managed to get a pretty decent spot. There are two toilet blocks, one is older than the other, both with cold showers. Definitely worth the $8 pp a night, only downside is there is no drinking water available on site.
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 😍
