A very basic camping ground for $10 per person, per night. Situated away from the surf at Ocean Beach. A great place to watch a west coast sunset.

This campground was once known as Riria Kereopa Memorial Drive Camping.

They now have a check-in and booking system at the front gate, similar to the system that DOC uses where you fill-out a form and drop it in the box provided.

Very basic, the only shade was taken by permanent campers but it wasn't a problem during my stay. Clean bathrooms and powerful showers but take a torch after dark. Interesting check-in procedure where you fill out a form, put the form in with a token and cash if you have it ($5 per campsite then $10pp) or you can come back when the office is manned to pay by card. Lovely lady working there and close to town

Cheapest place around seeing as you can’t freedom camp in Raglan. Costs $10 per person per night plus a $5 site fee per night, which was a bit expensive considering what it was. Very basic, just a field, a toilet and some bins. Bathrooms didn’t get cleaned during the time we were there (2 nights) and the showers are $1 for 3 minutes of hot water, which is over priced in my opinion. Nice to see a variety of bins available for different kinds of rubbish. Nice spot, 5 mins drive from the nearest surfing beach. Would go again but only because it’s the cheapest option

Very good location , close to town and walking distance to the beach . Very easy check in , plenty of space but a little bit noisy.
The down side is the cleaning . The bathroom is disgusting. I stayed there 3 nights and it did not seem that it has been cleaned at all during this time .

Lugar muy bonito, muy bien mantenido, super fácil de acceder y la gente muy amable. Solo mejoraría las duchas ya que están descuidadas . Pero sin duda volvería!

Great stay here. 5 mins drive from town or you can walk via the airfield. Friendly hosts and good facilities. Good to see different types of recycling available too. Would definitely stay again

A flat site with toilet and shower block, rubbish disposal including all kinds of recycling. There was a new toilet block too. An easy check in system and only $10 per night. No alcohol camp. The only down side was the sites near the road were noisy as the traffic was very close and fast. Super friendly and helpful hosts. A short walk across to town through the airfield which was an experience in itself! Would definitely camp here again

Really easy check in and a beautiful spot with a walk throw a meadow and along the beach to get into town. Toilets were really gross, they have showers which you pay for hot water but they were too dirty so we didnt use them. Beautiful spot otherwise
