Plenty of space to stay on river flats surrounded by native bush and only 30 minutes drive from Wellington City. Lots of nearby walks including beautiful (and brisk) river swims.

Have a chat to the ranger to get permission to light a campfire on the riverbank - an amazing way to spent the evening under the stars!

Credit card and debit card payments can be made on site.

$8 per adult for unpowered sites and $16 for powered sites. Free BBQs and even jugs and toasters available for use at most of the kitchen areas.
Stunning setting, great walks around the river. If you are looking at staying for a few days and need a hot shower, the pool in Upper Hutt - H2O Xtreme is $5.10 per adult and has a large public spa, sauna and steam room (over 16s only).

Awesome campground. The park is beautiful and well maintained, and it's a scenic drive in/out too. You can park up or camp right next to the river. There are plenty of short walks in the park or you can swim in the river. Facilities were clean, the only thing that stopped me from giving it a 10 was that there are no showers. We were there on a weekend and it can get pretty busy but there's loads of space.

Kaitoke is a favorite of ours. Really happy vibe, good family campground. Rangers are total stars!
Pet friendly- so there are a tonne of dogs at all times, but owners are very responsible. Great wee tracks nearby, swimming holes, perfect for kids to take bikes. Good for tents, caravans or campers.

Great location by the river. Just be careful with other people’s dogs. My son was bitten on the face by a dog whose owners left it unattended on a 10m rope. 🤷🏻‍♀️
We spent half a day in hospital and my son will now have Permenant scaring.
The ranger said he couldn’t do much other than tell the dog owner to tie their dog up on a shorter leash.
Tbh - I think he should have evicted them from the camp grounds, as their dog was clearly not under their control. I would have liked a better response. Especially as it was Wellington anniversary weekend and the park was very busy with kids running everywhere.

This place rocks. It’s my go to if you want to get out of Wellington. Heaps of places to setup, great facilities and so close to a beautiful stream, walks and swimming holes. Great for young and old.
