15 Rapaki Street, Koitiata, Whanganui, Manawatu, North Island

DESCRIPTION:

This tiny campsite fts neatly in between the baches and houses that make up
the Koitiata community. The big point of interest here is the Turakina Reserve
which is at the midpoint of the longest sand dune system in New Zealand.
The beach, estuary and lagoon are home to an impressive range of native
wading birds, plants and invertebrates. Just across the road is a lovely kids play
area and BBQ picnic area. There is great fshing on the beach. Bring all your
supplies as there is no beach store for 8km. A single hot shower is unlocked
for campers and there are two toilets and an. open-air kitchen porch which
has a sink and a washing machine. The facilities are clean but the water here
is drawn from an iron-rich bore so things might look a bit rusty. Separate
drinking water is available. Pet friendly. The camp wardens, Tom and Trish live at 15 Rapaki Street, through the gate at the back of the camping area which
is where you go to pay camp fees of $12 for one of the 8 powered sites plus
$2 per person. Tent sites are $6 plus $2 per person. Children up to 12 free.
Plenty of space, so no need to book.

Vinegar Hill Camp Ground 184 Cheltenham Hunterville Rd Ohingaiti 4783, Whanganui, Manawatu, North Island

DESCRIPTION:

 CLOSED - Due to significant flooding and affected access to Vinegar Hill the campground will be closed until further notice 

Between Hunterville and Mangaweka, turn east off SHwy 1 onto SHwy 54. A few kilometers down the road you will find a lovely riverside bush reserve in an unspoilt rural setting. Beware of your undercarriage on the short, bumpy, gravel road! Flat, grassy, non-powered sites with plenty of tree shelter, border the scenic Rangitikei River (which has great swimming holes). This is relaxed camping with the only facilities being the new toilets and basic showers (and a second old toilet block at the other end of the reserve). No dogs please during the summer camping season. A caretaker is on-site December to February .
