This is a beautiful wee Campsite that is dog friendly and best if you're on a self-contained campervan. There's water but the toilet is only a long drop.
Views from the campsite is absolutely beautiful and water is calm and awesome to swim in.

This is a lovely spot on the beach, not very big but it filled quickly for the night. Nice walking track to Momorangi Bay. The long drop was disgusting the worst we encountered on our STH Is travels sadly.

Definitely worth a stop. Nice campsite.
We saw dolphins in the water from the stoney beach.
- Warning - the toilet was the worst, so many flies and smelt horrendous.

Amazing little spot especially for sunset. A few sandflies but nothing major. Hold your nose when you use the long drop lol

Great basic camp site. About 6 vehicles were there. Not really any space for pitching tent. Maybe one or two small ones. But views were amazing. Had seals playing in the water. Long drop toilet. Tap to get water. For $8 it was perfect

Guessing this place can get a bit crowded in the summer but we stayed in May, pulled up at 3 and had an AMAZING view of the sound. One of the best views we have had at a DOC campsite.

Take a walk along the track connected to the site.

Nice camping, by the beach and with a beautiful view. It is quiet during the night.
There is now shower, and the toilet was very, very smelly
