$12 for two in camper. Basic amenities, seperate hot showers, oven, bring cutlery. Shared large pitch with 4 cars, couple long stays this June. Turn off in Waverley towards coast on sealed road, go left at the cattle-stop to wooden building. Don't forget to pay at library first! Well worth it, cheers Wave-town. No WIFI, who needs it this close to beach and caves.

Great spot, large grassy sites, no frills but basic amenities all there. Black sand beaches are a short walk, with caves to explore at low tide. We had high and constant winds but hedges provided some protection.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
We stayed here for two nights before Christmas. The free camping site has a beautiful view over the beach and has awesome sunsets. The beach is an interesting walk with fossils from millions of years ago, petrified forests and caves. There is a free cold shower at the Reserve for after swimming. 10 stars.
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.
