An oldie but a goodie as the saying goes. Stop in at the office on the way down to the domain camp, you will pass it on your way in to this spot on the edge of the sea, and at the heart of the Mokihinui community. With plenty of level land, either on the sports field or beside the beach, this camp has a tavern near the entrance and the sea over the bank at the back where there is excellent fishing, and whitebaiting in the river. Some old trees make this a lovely picnic area. Around the playing field are 21 sites, which have power and taps, the main amenities are a central kitchen with three full stoves, fridge, tables and chairs. The main ablution block has clean tiled showers and toilets, with another block of toilets available in the busy season, and there are automatic machines in the laundry. Added extras include a herb garden and book exchange, and your friendly hosts, Joan and Basil, invite you to participate in the yearly Xmas fishing competition, or come and put your torpedo out at any time. Tent sites from $8 for one and $2 for children under 12 years. Power sites from $20 for two and $2 for children under 12 years.
