This is a great site. We paid $12 for the both of us on a powered site. Although the facilities may not look like much they had great, hot, free showers and not a cold shower block when you got out the shower! Playground and free bbqs a short walk away, right near the beach. Lovely sunset. All grass pitches which could be worth bearing in mind if it has been raining.

Quite possibly my favorite campsite in NZ. We paid $12 for two people for a powered camper van site, which is on an honesty system by paying at the Library in town. The kitchen was nice for cooking our pasta in, bathrooms were fine, and the location next to a gorgeous black sand beach is great! This was a nice halfway point for us to stop off at for the night between Waitomo and Wellington. Highly recommended for being a great value!

Grassy area. $12 for a powered site. Showers included. Kitchen. Almost empty space. Pay fee at library. Perfect for the price!

This is a real gem of a campsite. The place we had to ourselves and we will return, basic but totally great.. Hot showers, good basic powered kitchen.. that is all you need.. A secret special location on the cliffs of Waipipi beach.

What a little gem of a site. Drove from Wellington and thanks to Rankers found this quiet, grassy site with power and basic facilities all for $12 a van. 9 km's off State Highway 3. Great to watch the sun setting over the sea. Toilets, showers and kitchen basic but all work. Saturday night end January and plenty of space.

A perfect place to stay for a family. Playground, huge grass areas, $12 per night (powered)! Facilities are basic, but absolutely okay. First enter Waverley, in town you have to do a turn left. Don't use the Lennox Road.

Even Waverley Village is perfect, tennis ground next to a huge playground for all ages.

Take care about the opening hours of the library (9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sat. till noon) Sunday closed!
