60 non-powered/tent sites (bookings required)
Just south of the golf club on the southern approach to Whangamata, take
Wentworth Valley Road (unsealed with a small ford) for the 5 km drive to this
relaxed, remote, self-registration campsite. From here there are interesting
walks to the Wentworth Waterfalls and the Wentworth Mines, or just take
a dip in the local water hole. The level sites to the rear of the camp are
appealing, with pockets of bush. Only cold water is provided but there is
a shower, also basins and toilets. A gas barbecue and the washing-up sinks
are roofed. Room for around 85 tents, bookings are required in the summer
period. Prior permission from the camp manager is required to bring dogs.
Camping costs $10 per adult and $5 children.
