If you want a true kiwi camping experience, you will get it here at this sprawling
campground that boasts one of the best beaches on the peninsula and offers
safe, family-friendly camping in a beach front setting. There are two excellent
amenity blocks each containing a kitchen, toilets, washing facilities and coin
operated showers, as well as laundry facilities. Plenty for children to do when
they are finished swimming - flying foxes, a climbing frame, swings, slide and a
cycle track. Visit the highly rated Maori and Colonial Museum while you are
here or make use of the community tennis courts., there is a store located
in the village for your convenience and it's open seven days in peak season.
Definitely no dogs and no fires, there is a dump station available but you will
need to boil any water you use. Your friendly hosts are Darren and Michelle
Wallis Hartley. All sites are unpowered and charges are $12 per adult, $6 per
child (5 to15 years) and under 5 year olds are free.
