Great spot, not far from central Napier. We were looking for something that wasn’t a parking lot and this provided. Lovely clean facilities and plenty of room! Nice to fall asleep to the ocean and wake up to bird song
Be aware, the beachfront spaces are not level at all and would make it rather difficult to sleep! However, there is plenty of space to camp on the grass. With lots of shelter by the trees. Picnic tables available with good, clean, flushing toilets close by.
Just a short walk from the black sand beach.
Lovely spot…would definitely recommend!!
Lovely large grassy area with trees and picnic tables. 2 modern flush toilets. Rubbish and recycling bins, drinking water (but not meant to refill your fresh water tank). 1 minute walk to the stone beach. Had a good swim in the waves with a superb view on Cape Kidnappers and Napier bay.
Beautiful quiet spot. Great clean facilities. We loved it! Easy spot to bike to a few wineries. Loves of native bird song.
Lots of great sites amongst the trees, right by the beach and good walks or cycling by the river. The existing toilet block is old but new one has been built though not operational yet.
Great spot, we will be back.
Very nice place, lot of space for everybody, nice view to the sea and river outfall. U can make nice walks around
Loveliest place Ive camped on the northern island between Auckland and Wellington. We were surrounded by trees and a short walk to the beautiful ocean. At first I was leary with some reviews of it being a gravel pit, but this was not the case at all. Absolutely breathtaking and peaceful.
Stayed here Dec 2018 was told the council had done their duty and thought of the motor home self cont. People. Well done folks
The image of the grass is missleading, this gave us the impression you were parking on grass. There were 3 decent parking places on grassy bits near the trees, the rest was effectively gravel.
None the less it ticked all our boxes, off the main road, had space, and some grass for our daughter to run around on. It had a toilet block and bins, but we are self contained anyway so was just used for quick visits.
Only reason to mark it down was for the miss-leading picture and that the nearby other car park had people playing loud music. All in all though, it was free and was quiet when we slept.
Quiet spot 30 metre from the sea. Toilets cleaned and rubbish removed daily. Can get muddy when it's wet. Always has some space available. Most people use Clifton Domain a kilometre or so down the road.
Looked in on this camp but decided to move on, there was very limited places to camp, most the area was blocked off with barriers,and there was some very ruff looking lot camped there in a van and tent that were not self contained.
Good spot close to the beach - relatively quiet.
This campground is patrolled by a security company. Don't try to camp there if you're not self-contained.
Otherwise perfect spot. Toilets are clean and it's right next to the water.
