Maraehako Camping Ground is an amazing spot. There are not many camping grounds like this in the world.
Minimal facilities - but you don't need any. Just park up and take in the view. No bookings needed.

Beautiful place to stay. Lovely hosts. Small river to swim in, great for all ages. Build your fire at the beach to watch the sunset. $15 per night adults $10 school kids. Just great, thanks for sharing your home with everyone.

Beautifull spot and very friendly owner. Nice hazy view of Whatakaari. Also good kayaks for rent for very good prices (15 dollars for a double, 10 dollars for a single) No kitchen, no dishwashing facilities, no cell phone reception and it costs a dollar to use the showers for 4 minutes (even if you only want cold water). In that sense, 15 dollars per person per night might be a bit pricy, but then again. You can make a fire on the beach, so it was well worth it for us!
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Park anywhere, no power, no internet, no cell phone coverage, pure water in the stream. Enjoy a fire at the beach in the sunset. Oh what utter joy to be in the outdoors!! This place is magical.

We were looking for a place to truly unwind and and recharge ourselves.
What a perfect piece of NZ! I adore this country of ours! Sigh.....amazing! Friendly and welcoming, the beach and fresh water swimming hole were fantastic!
Great place to get the kayaks wet too!
Thanks for sharing this place! Love it!
This place is absolutely stunning! 10/10..... Bathroon facility cleanliness, 2/10.
Safe & extremely family friendly, we had the best time. Haven't been there since pre kids & it was worth the wait. We pitched our tent right next to the beach, just bliss. Campfires every night! The grounds are clear of rubbish etc, the people who go and enjoy the camp are respectful & cherish this special place. My one & only gripe, which is very important due to the sheer number of people who stay there; was that the toilet shower area was absolutely filthy. The sign said it was cleaned daily between a certain time, and in 10 days the showers were not cleaned once (we watched & no cleaner went in there). There is mould & grime all over the shower walls, and gunk/yuck stuff in the rubber flooring in the shower cubicles. It needs to be water blasted! Was such a shame, not nice to have to take kids in there etc. But that is my only concern, other than that it is just magical......just wash in the waterhole or beach instead hehe.
Beautiful spot with nice people! You could find a great place right next to the ocean, hire a kayak, have a swim and relax. In the evening, there is a possibility of campfire and that's amazing! The facilities are basic, but that's all you need in the place like this. We will definitely come back!
Absolutely stunning spot!! right on the beach with the choice of swimming in the fresh water hole or the ocean.
Will definately be returning.
The East Coast is beautiful.
Amazing camp ground, friendly host and loads of space. Right on the beach with great sunsets. The perfect place to put your feet up and relax.
