The Green Camping Ground


Great Barrier Island

The Green Camping Ground is small and intimate, a 10 min walk from the Whangaparapara road end.

Great Barrier Island free of rats, mustalids, hedgehogs and possums, but has ship rats and mice. Argentine ants are also not welcome - please check your gear, boats, kayaks for these pests and destroy any ants you find. Kauri dieback disease is present. Keep to the defined tracks, clean your footwear before and after visiting kauri forest areas, and stay away from kauri tree roots.

Nice small campground. With low tide you can have a walk around the sea. There were warning of rats - don't leave your food in the tent as rats can chew it up. Recommended.
