North Island ▷ Coromandel ▷ Thames
Very basic campground and $10 fee for camping. We stayed there one night because it was late and we had no other choice. There are plenty of better places and paying $10 just for being in the valley seems to me a scam.
Great campsite with one toilet only, but next to a clean river with a pool for swimming, drinking water, just a few metres away at DOC.
One word : disappointing!
Don't go there, unless you want to pay 10$ for a place with 20cm grass, hypse of sandflies and smelling toilets! We stayed in many free campgrounds which were much better than this...
Perfect first night in our campervan at Shag Stream camp, a quiet spot by the creek with shady trees and a swimming hole.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
