SCC camping at the rear carpark. $16 a night (based on two people), can only purchase online at the Auckland council website.
Right next to the boat ramp and two beach heads. Great for kayaking when tide is in.

Two sets of toilets, both of decent quality. There are also rudimentary showers by the toilets near the parking spots. Cold and not the best flowing but great after a sea swim.
Busy during the day, we were here over a weekend.
Alot of short walks as well! Fantastic spot for families and a number of free to use BBQs on site as well!

This place is gorgeous. Flushing toilets, well kept surrounds and really nice walks around the park. We paid $15 each for an unpowered site, which was fine for somewhere within an hour of Auckland. Make sure to read the gate code on the booking email attachment.

6 is for the new toilets which are stunning. We go here a lot as we are local. When we saw the new camp grounds open up, we thought we'd chuck the tent up for a night and see how it was. The grounds were terrible as the ground had been ploughed and was extremely rough! And I mean extremely! The site is very exposed as no growth yet from the newly planted vegetation. So probably another 5 years at least before wind screening. It's all new, and yeah the gravel road going back to the house is rather noisy, so don't camp next to it. The old camp site was closer to the beach but boy that was run down.

We ended up staying in the campground but note there is also a self contained camping area in the same park. There is a small price difference between the two, but both are nice options. There is a new toilet block available in the campground and there is water. There are no showers. It is a nice open area where you can chose your own spot. It was quiet when we were there and we had a nice view over the inlet. Definitely recommended.
