Cheap little campsite at $10/night for an unpowered site. Showers are $2 and flush toilets, although no toilet paper for over 24 hours while I was there and it could all do with a really good hose out and clean. Tent sites were nicely mowed and rubbish bins available. Also a coin operated gas bbq further down the reserve, along with a playground. The surrounding landscape of wetlands means the water table is very high and as a result the unpowered sites were a bit soggy in places but still ok to use, just be aware if it’s been raining. A short and pleasant walk to a lovely beach with plenty of driftwood and pumice treasures to find and plenty of bird life to see in the wetlands area. I stayed 2 nights and enjoyed my time.

Basic older first come small campground with only one functioning flush toilet; shower $2; powered site $16 for 2 pp -cash; dump station and water; minimal cell signal; WiFi can be purchased online. Across the road from the longest sand beach in NZ - strewn with lots of huge tree logs, wild and worth the 5 min stroll. OK for overnight July 2020 but other (more expensive) choices in the general area.

Stayed in Sept 2020. Cheap option for one night, great for taking the dogs but don't expect any luxury. Campground consists of a square lawn, sites are at a first come / first served basis. There's one toilet and $2 shower each for male and females. There's an outdoor kitchen bench with warm water under a little roof. Price on the board out front is still $12 for a powered site but on the envelope it says $16, cash only. Still very cheap. Lawn got very soggy after rain when we were there.

Loved this campsite, it is right by the beach and facing west so as long as the night is clear you get a cracking sunset! Powered sites are by the kitchen area and unpowered is across the road on a grassy reserve, both equally as good!! Excellent price and a beautiful location! The beach is covered in old dead trees - watch your feet!!!! Paid through an honesty box in tge kitchen area

Nice spot, cheap as chips, pricing as of july 2019 $12 powered site plus $2 per person $6 unpowered plus $2 per person, fill in evenlope and put in box in wall provided, man comes and checks so please do it to keep this great spot running. $2 hot showers and free toilets, drinking water and a donation washing machine, simple but great spot for an overnite.
