This place definitely has its magic and we can only recommend visiting. For $10 pp you get unpowered site and quite nice toilets and showers. Powered site for $15. At the top of that Whangamomona is actually an "independent republic" with a nice hotel serving local beer in the middle of beautiful Forgotten World Highway.

+ Can't miss the check-in where the owner lives. Didn't book upfront, no problem. His livingquarter is a sight to see. Curious chickens, a duck and 2 pony's were our fellow campusers, next to (plenty room) a few other campervans and tents. Showers (hot) are in an old barn (like!) and clean, so are the (real) toilets. Small little kitchen with microwave. And indeed a quick walk into the little town, which is a sight due to her history. Nice food and beautiful old historical pictures at the hotel there. Campsite surrounded by hillsides. We did a late checkout, no one complained. P.s. Campsite also has a swing/slide/playhouse for kids, but no kids when we visit ;)
- When raining the grass stays a bit soggy.
- Dust-spiderwebs at facilities.

Really nice campsite with quirky decor and collectibles lying about the place. Fantastic showers! there was a little group of chickens wandering around too which were very cute. Nice owner, cheap to pitch a tent. Nicely mowed lawns and pleasant views of the surrounding hills.

$10 per person for a non-powered site. We arrived in the dark and found it hard to locate reception/staff. All facilities are there, just basic and dated.

A great site in the Independent Republic of Whangamomona, run by, and in behalf of, the local community. Everything you need is there, albeit in the old school buildings, and it's around 300 metres walk down to the Hotel, for great food, beer, and good company. A "must stop" on the Forgotten World Highway.

A lovely secluded place to stay. We were greeted by chickens and tiny ponies. The guy running it has a quirky sense of humour - check out the "gym". He was on hand should we have needed anything. The facilities were spotless and showers included in the price. A little expensive at $15 pp for a powered site, but given the overnight temp, we were glad to have heating. Would certainly stay here again.

Nice campground with a personal touch and kids playground, $15 for a non-powered spot per vehicle/night. Facilities (toilets, shower, little kitchen) are old, but were clean as we stayed there. Can't say that the owner was unfriendly. He just seems to be a typical NZ bloke living in the countryside, a little rough and likes to do his own thing, but otherwise friendly.
