Parakai Springs Camping Ground is in the thermal heart of the Helensville district,
northwest of Auckland. Parakai is well known for its many warm mineral
swimming pools and water slide. The camping ground is adjacent, but quite
separate from the pools. It has a nice playground for children. Sites are level
and open with big trees around the perimeter of the camp. Picnic tables
and some hard stands for vans are provided. Over 100 sites here, most with
power. A clean kitchen has microwave (there is no dining space), but plenty
of preparation benches, a stove, hot plates and a fridge. The laundry facilities
are excellent. The ablutions have a modest number of good hot showers and
toilet facilities, however there is another block near the camp entrance. A
good number of permanents are in residence, but there is plenty of space for
casual campers. There is a dump station here. A superette, family tavern and
takeaway are within a stones throw of the camp. Powered sites are $18 per
person and unpowered $16 per person. Campers get a reduced fee to use
the pools.
