Great little overnight stop, the birds sing all day long, toilets are brilliant, nice little bush walk
Have lived in Hawke’s Bay for a few years, driven past the sign to this place a million times, and finally made a point to stop and stay a night. What a great spot! Clean and tidy with flushing toilet and plants of space. $2 per person paid at the norsewood dairy led us to the cafe across the road for a great breakfast.... a great discovery!

This site is great. Large, well kept, grassy area nestled amongst large trees. Options to shade yourself from the morning/evening sun or both. Plenty of areas to be off in a corner by yourself. Picnic tables, toilets, a tap, a small river, and a small 1km walk through the bush. For a $2 donation, this site is the perfect stop.
This campground is close to the highway, but I can't hear the highway at all. There is plenty of space to park and pitch a tent or caravan. There is a toilet and that's all, but if that's all you need, it's perfect. The fee is two dollars with a minimum stay of 5 nights. Totally worth it! There's enough privacy and shade from the trees, or no trees and an open field if you prefer. A river near by and a map of some trails if you like that, too!

Fabulous place for an overnight camp. I stayed here on two separate occasions and both didn't disappoint. Nice clean toilets. Peaceful setting. Will definitely stay again.
Next to the highway, good for an overnight stop. There is tap water, but not for drinking. Toilets were ok.
Nice place to stay a night to break a trip up, toilets are always clean. Beware that possums are really loud at night and it can get cold in mornings.
We stayed one night. You have to go in the small village to give the $2 per person but you don't have any receipt (Scandi Superette, Coronation Street, Norsewood). It's a donation. Really good spot. Many places to park and toilet very clean. Table and seat in a dry place.
Small but very well kept park. Lovely surroundings and very clean toilets. Basic but good. Handled our 11 metre bus. Recommend.
It is a nice lil patch of grass but the coordinates are wrong and now we are staying at a small ball rifle club where its allowed to stay not for 2 bugs tho but for 5 anyway no toilets water or anything so bring your own.
Off State Highway 2 just before Norsewood. Quiet and peaceful, with a handy location en route to Wellington.
We had hoped to stay in Napier, but found leaving it to the last minute to find accommodation on a Saturday night had been a bad idea! Not wanting to pay a premium, we decided to get a little bit closer to Wellington and headed to this campsite at Norsewood. Directions were accurate and despite there being no obvious signs and arriving well into the night, we had no problems finding it with the help of GPS. We shared the large grassy park with only one other campervan, and apart from the familiar rustling of hedgehogs (or were they possums...?), we had a very peaceful sleep. the amenities are limited to a small but clean toilet block and tap (water not fit for drinking). a sign in the men's helpfully suggested if there was no toilet roll there, to try the ladies! :)
