Almost had the place to ourselves, as it was off peak mid week. We had kiwi calling in the campground at night, even saw one poking around. Lovely beach and walks, but can't see the water from the campsite. The only problem was that it was hard to sleep in with the birds singing so loudly in the morning! $15/adult, $6.50/child.

Fantastic secluded camping ground close to the beach with lovely walks. We heard Kiwi birds nearby but didn't manage to see any! Ground can be sloped in some areas and facilities are clean and basic composting toilets. €30 a night for 2 people

Nice, quiet, walks, possibility to surf, dive, fish and awesome beaches. I did the 9km coastal walk, really nice with a lot of sheep and birds.

This is a beautiful site in the National Park so very well managed and quite strict. Need to be self sufficient as only water and long drop toilets available. You need to book this site in advance as run by Auckland Council. I did spend half an hour on the phone sorting out the booking for that night. Long process.
