Lovely quiet little campsite 10 mins inland off the main coastal road through Tapu.
Beautiful spot next to the river,
Very clean and tidy facilities (showers and toilets, didnt check out the kitchen), & friendly helpful owner.
We paid $35 for a powered site 2 adults, a child and a dog in June 2020.

We (3 people with a tent) arrived on new years eve without reservation and with little hope as every camping area nearby was full but the owners and fellow campers were absolutely lovely and squeezed us in! They even made pizza for everyone in their very own pizza oven!
Went for a swimm in the creek right next to camping, a lively place that we will come back to if we are ever back in nz, we love Tapu creek :)

Two toilets and a hot shower for free, covered Picknick area and fridge to use!

Stayed one night here. Such a nice place next to a creek. The powered spots around the outside have more privacy and are $15 pp and the inside area $10pp. We actually went for the powered spot even though we didn’t need the power supply. Would highly recommend to anyone! Will be coming back!
