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.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 79 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
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.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
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.
Hot showers and flush toilets are available in the day use area, electric bbq in campground. A pleasant place to stay when you need somewhere close to the airport
Difficult process to get in. Have to stay on hold a couple of times.
Toilet is okay. (Don't expect much.) There's a public shower in the park which is a ways away but other than that it was nice.
- great atmosphere
- everything is green here
- feels like a farm
- very spacious and with privacy for each vehicle (if there is no rain and you can spread out on the lawn)
- compost toilet, no soap
- no kitchen or community area
- nice outside area to clean cuttleries
- cleanliness was OK.
- you have to register via phone (20-30min booking process) - too complicated
- close to the Airport
- price 15ppn, unpowered
- feels like you pay the high price mainly for the overcomplicated administration
Positive: 10 min drive from the airport, large grass area, farm animals nearby which you may encounter
Negative: dirty and stinky facilities, no shower, no light (even though you pay $15 pp). I was in line for about 30 min to get the booking (there is a phone with wich you need to call the city council, they were very friendly but you need patience!)
