Beautiful location with lovely local walks. Can get busy with locals visiting and fishing. All four spaces were taken. We got our space at 4pm with the last remaining taken much later.
Nice spot near the estuary with plenty of birds to observe and great for fishing.
One modern toilet with jazz music! Walk around on the beach and see Kapiti island in the background.
Nice spot, felt very safe. Modern toilet. Space for 4 campers. I arrived around 7PM mid-February 2020 and there was one space available.
Nice view with toilets, only 4 spots
One of the best free campsite we had. Got there around 3pm. Apart from some visiters (kite surfers, dogs) we were the only one staying over night. Toilet closes before 12 pm, but it's very clean and big.
Walks along the beach& sunset.

Lovely place to stay and you are on the coast so there will be wind. We really enjoyed our free stay but we abide by the rules. Our only objection is that so called self contained small vans park 3 vans in two spaces and no one checks. It needs to be policed continuously. 9.12.18
Brilliant campsite in the reserve, though very exposed and windy. Loads of kite surfers. Very clean toilets - that even speak to you and play music when the door is locked. No showers. A playground about 1.2km walk down the road. If you love driftwood, this is the place for you.
We stayed in December, lovely spot in the nature reserve near the beach. Respect the 4 camper only rule please, security do come & check. Lovely beach full of driftwood. We would of loved to stay 2 nights, but 1 night is the max. Nice & quiet.
Well located campsite with a clean flush toilet nearby. However, we were exposed to extreme wind during our stay so check the weather before coming.
Well located free campsite with walk along the beach and good views.
Calm and directly by the river. Very nice spot to stay. Someone came by and wrote down our register number (only stay for one night). Clean toilet with music. Funny!
A lovely spot by the estuary, amazing sunset great toilets. We were a bit confused about where to camp, as there were several campers on the left when we came in, so parked up on grass area near the other campers,13 of us in all camped there. Wasn't till the next morning that we found a sign saying only 4 campers allowed and only in carpark on the right as you come in! Security did come in at about 9pm and wrote down all our number plates but no one asked any of us to move on !!
Awesome location - river, beach and lagoon; some friendly locals telling stories about bird life, very calm and relaxing!
