Boat access only

The Ngaruru Bay Camping Ground is on the southern end of Arapawa Island Scenic Reserve. It is small and very isolated - the perfect place for people who are keen to get away from it all. Great for all water-based activities.

A very nice campsite where you feel far away from everything. Very clean site and toilets. Go and get a swim in the bay which is so blue (without being photoshopped!!!)
