It's a wonderful spot near the tidal mouth of the Waiotahe river, and close to the huge white sand sweep of Waiotahe Beach.
You're only 4km from Onekawa Te Mawhai Regional Park, where there is an excellent bush/coastal walk and numerous picnic spots.
Te Ahiaua has a shelter, bench seating and plenty of space for recreation. You must camp in the signed area at the eastern end of the field.

24/7, all year round.
Nice spot, bit of road noise, but goes quiet after 9pm.Grass area gets very boggy. Portaloos on site .
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
We did not stay here. It was too loud and had too many people driving around in the lots. We didn’t feel safe. We chose to splurge and stay at the holiday park down the road.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Big space but very unclear where designated area was especially after dark... didn't have a problem though, very noisy from about 4 with heavy trucks and traffic on the highway... didn't use toilets but there are some on site. Need to be self contained anyhow.
One of the two excellent Freedom Camping offerings near Opotiki. The outlook faces north and is stunning. Watch the locals dig for pipi's at low tide (or even join them :) The only downside is lack of privacy and road noise due to being right next to a busy state highway.
