Address:S Hwy 27, Waharoa, Matamata, Waikato, North Island
Heading north from Matamata, (about 8 km) keep an eye out for the entrance
to the Matamata Aerodrome (and camp) on your right - just north of the
Ruangaiti marae. A popular camp spot for plane-spotters, the pleasant grounds
have some shady trees and unobstructed views of the runway and ranges.
There are around 40 powered sites and abundant tent sites, with room for
large vehicles to manoeuvre. The kitchen is generously proportioned and
comes with plenty of hot points, rangettes, a microwave and lots of fridge/
freezers. A covered porch/dining area commands a great view across the
aerodrome. The ablutions are bright and clean and double as the laundry. No
animals are allowed here. Skydiving and gliding are offered - although you’ll
need to ring the camp manager, ahead of time to arrange.
Un-powered sites $13.50 per person and powered sites $15.50 per person.
