Take the turnoff to Kellys Bay that is signposted just after you leave the tar seal on Pouto Road, then travel a further 6 km on a good gravel road. This is home to spectacular flocks of oyster catchers, stilts, terns and other sea birds. The camp is a tidy level grassed area across the road from the waters of this quiet sheltered bay. There are 14 power sites and plenty of room for holidaymakers who are independent. Facilities are minimal, water taps and clean long drop toilets only. Privacy shelters have been erected, so you can use your own solar shower; but that’s it! There is good shell and boat fishing, while the children have a safe swimming beach and colourful play equipment. No Eftpos here and the last stop for petrol is Dargaville, so make sure you have plenty to get you back. The last shop is at Te Koperu. So please ensure you have plenty of food. Terry and Jenny are your hosts.
