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

A lovely and inexpensive campground. There ia a toilet and shower for each of the two main genders, a kitchen sink, bench space and a washing machine. BBQ tables are scattered around. There are no cooking facilities except for a BBQ next to the playground about 100 meters away.

Nice small campsite, facilities adequate.
Behind the sand dunes, you have to take a 10 mins walk through an eerie river estuary full of dead tree logs to reach the sea. Dark grey sand, beautiful views. Recommended!
