6 Waitete Rd, Waihi, New Zealand, Bay of Plenty, East Cape, North Island


This delightful camp is in Waihi township tucked into a hidden valley 10 minutes
from Waihi Beach and the Karangahake Gorge walkways, and the newly
appointed Hauraki rail trail. There are 52 powered sites and unlimited tent
space spread across 10 acres of park-like grounds. Try down by the river, close
to the facilities or in the wide open spaces surrounded by mature trees and
gardens. It might be fun to take a walk to the gold and silver mines. The kids
will love chucking bread for the ducks, petting the pigs, giving the Suffolk sheep
a pat, or feeding the trout in the stream. They can then burn off some energy
in the large outdoor swimming pool, while the adults enjoy a well-appointed
kitchen with stoves, microwaves and fridge with outdoor BBQ/dining pergola
alongside. The smart ablutions have free showers with a disabled access suite.
An automatic laundry and dump point are provided. Gloria is your host. All
sites are $20 per person.
