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.

Excellent site. Cleanest toilets, loads of beautiful grassy space. Right on the beach. Lots of Takehe and Pukekos roaming around (including little babies!).

Gravel road to the park can be slippery if raining. The park is nice as well as the camping area but its on grass and a little uneven. Toilets were really clean. We paid $15 per person for an unpowered site. Camping is close to the lovely beach. Trails around are nice for walking or running.

Fabulous campsite, we loved it, it incorporates everything a DOC campsite is supposed to be. Quite an adventure to get there though. Lovely neighbours, Tuis and Pukekos. Perfect beach, great waves. Facilities ok.
