Shame no dogs allowed but great site on waters edge. Clean toilets close by.

Watch out for the mosquitos though!

Lots of spots available for campers. Public toilet only 50 metres walk, no lights so take a torch in the night. No fresh water tap available so be prepared. Boat ramp near by. I'll definitely be going back with my boat next time.

Quiet place, parking on the grass, public toilet 100m away. Pretty good for no cost.

Nice spot by the estuary but overcrowded during weekends. A bit noisy with the jet skiers messing around.

Beautiful spot right on the spit. We were perched overlooking the estuary. No drinking water available. Would recommend!

Beautiful place to stay. Love being close to the water for a swim. Can get a bit crowded in busy summer time so get there early to secure the best spots.

Great secluded and sheltered spot. Plenty of space and access to the waterway. Bathrooms were clean but are old/basic and a bit of a walk. Overall a stunning spot.

Great place right outside Ohope. There is great fishing all along the estuary. The parking is in an open field and you can access the beach from the sites. Bathrooms were a bit grungy, but generally nice. The park seems to be pretty popular and lots of boaters and groups were taking advantage of this spot.

Room enough for a lot of campers/motorhomes.

Amazing quiet campsite at the end of the road. Flat grassy field that is clearly signposted for camping. Right next to beaut beach and decent flushing toilets a short walk away. Can’t fault it.
