DESCRIPTION:

Across the dunes from the beach, and nestled cosily amongst some trees,
is this cute little community run camp. The sites are grassed and there are
basic showers and toilets, including a paraplegic toilet. A $1 coin will buy you
four minutes of showering, but if you want to do any washing you will have  to do it by hand… and use the wringer over the concrete twin tub! Yes, there
are still camps like this in New Zealand. There is a purpose built lounge and
dining room that has a fridge, sink and card phone, and although it is an open
door building, it is well sheltered inside. An electric barbecue is available at $2
for 20 minutes and the camp offers fresh water, fire places, picnic tables and
rubbish collection. Dogs are allowed as long as they are under strict control
at all times. The local community warns you to take care when swimming, as
there are dangerous currents. Camp fees are $12.50 per adult with children
free. Maximum stay is 10 days. Contact them for family rates or large groups

Rapahoe Beach Holiday Park is a favourite place for groups and families (including your furry friends) to spend your holidays and experience camping the old school way, literally in the grounds of an old 1930s school! Located just 11km north of Greymouth, this quiet, secluded location immediately on the beachfront offers a range of facilities and activities for your comfort and relaxation – all while being central to a range of popular West Coast tourist attractions. Favourite pastimes for visitors include swimming in the “school pool” or on the beach, gemstone hunting, fishing, observing the local seal colony at Point Elizabeth, checking out the amazing geological papa rock and limestone features on the rugged northern point, or whitebait fishing on the river nearby. Maybe you would just like to simply read a book from our library or teach the kids a few of the old school board games? There’s something for everyone.

Motorhome and caravan sites (powered or non-powered), as well as tent sites available. Due to renovations by the new management, there are limited cabins and caravans for hire. These will be added to as the grounds are further developed.
