Fabulous spot. Beautiful sun rise and sun set. Clean toilets. Safe environment to camp.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Great facilities and plenty of space, right on the beach and only a short drive from the main highway, can be exposed in high winds but a few good spots to tuck out of wind.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Great camp, with clean toilets ,dump station, fresh water, and big area to find a place to park, all for $10 a site. Lovely friendly local couple collected the fees. It worked out a great place to stay for three nights on our North Island trip!!
Outstanding spot. Dump station, plenty of room and the fishing is good. Well done South Taranaki District Council and the local custodians.
Camper vehicle invested but wicked sunrise/sets.
Pros: beautiful beach, incredible sunset and moonrise and then sunrise the next morning, found a nice private spot for our tent.
Cons: EXTREMELY windy- nearly collapsed the tent! Not much shelter. There were LOTS of camper-vans, which is always a bit awkward when you're in a tent.
Bathrooms/taps are very basic, so be prepared for that.
Toilet facilities and water were good and clean. Location was lovely and the sunset views over the beach and sea stunning. Only $10 per pitch peak season.
Great place, wonderful views and big camping area. Modern toilets and a sink next to the toilet block for washing your dishes but no light in buildings except for a big lantern.
Price: 5 $ per site (winter), 10 $ per site (summer)
