Absolutly a great place to stay if you visit Auckland. We stayed here two nights. It was the last week of the Easter holiday school break so was very quiet. The proximity to the city, the farm animals, the green grass and the clean toilet - all were just great.

Beautiful campground surrounded by stunning coastal walk.

Lovely, flat, well maintained grass field with lots of bushes for shade and gravel spots for cars and when wet.

Campground has washing up facilities, toilets and drinking water, and a short walk to the park entrance gives more toilets, sinks and a couple of hot showers.

It's also a little visitor farm with little paddocks and you are basically shut in the park when the gates close - 9pm this summer, but earlier during winter.

Booking is online for Auckland Council so a bit fiddly but well worth it. 20 mijs drive from Auckland CBD and only a few mins to the airport.

A great place for a night around Auckland.
We stayed here on our first night and did not regret it. It is $20 for two adults.
There are public toilets which are decent. Also there is showers. Not luxurious but they do the job quite well.

There are lots of different animals. So if you like sheeps, cows, horses, birds, etc. this is a lovely place to stay.
So I would say that it is worth the $20 when you keep in mind that they have to run a small farm there.

Be here in good time. The spots for vans are few.

We paid 20$, which is way too much for what you get. The main gate closes at 5pm, so no way to get in with the car later than that. The toilets are very basic. After a long search, we finally found the showers - and decided not to use them. They are located in the public part of the park, in the disabled toilet cabin.
If you what to take public Transports to go to the city (because you what to come back after 5pm) you'll have to walk 20min to the next bus stop and then ride the bus for an hour.
All in all not worth it, I would rather stay at a free spot more far away from the city.

Wow! Great spot in the middle of Auckland. Close to airport.
The after hours check in process sucks. Took me about 20 minutes. The online check in had so many hoops to jump through. Was supposed to be charged $15 but was charged $20.36. There were several others struggling to get through the process too. As I finished checking in, another person showed up and opened the gate. Inside was a camp host that checked in several people, cash only. I wish I would have gone this route.

This campsite is perfect, nearby the city and the airport. For $15/pp you will get access to hot showers, basic toilets, drinkable water and beautiful surroundings! Don't worry about the check in process, just enter the gate on foot and find the host.

Best park so fare! With all facilites you need (dish sink, water supply, toilets, showers, etc.)! 10 min from the airport and there is a small farm with a petting zoo, so a really great location (for kids) with a stunning view on the sunset!

The place is nice, beautiful view, very quiet. But, the park’s gate close at 7 PM which way too early, and it’s written anywhere but in one of the three emails they send you AFTER you booked. We came out to have dinner at the city center and when we came back at 8 PM it was impossible to reach the campsite. So we paid for a site we did not use and they did not want to refund us. Very bad experience.
