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 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

Stunning place to stay even in the middle of winter. We turned up at 9pm on a Sunday and could check in with no hassle at all. Fill out a small form and pick a site number. Lovely owners and great facilities.

I ended up staying for 4 nights during Raglan’s summer peak. The owners were sweet and helpful and made sure everyone who needed a place to sleep got in. One can walk along the beach into town, and sweet sunsets. The facilities were basic, bathrooms were out of soap, hot showers for $1 or cold for free, but I would stay again!

Large flat field surrounded by great views. $10 per head. Friendly check-in. Quiet at night. Excellent hot showers. We had a large camper - plenty of space for it. No power but there was drinking water and rubbish disposal. Recommend!
