8 km north of Te Kaha and opposite the beach you will find another farm camping option, signposted, for independent campers. Shaded by big pohutukawa trees, it overlooks a beautiful rocky estuary. There is a water
supply, an outdoor cold water shower and two long drop toilets hiding in the trees. About 20 sites are available.
Located in rural Waitawheta near the town of Waihi, the camp is close to large areas of native New Zealand bush and rivers, including one of New Zealand's top ten natural attractions - the Karangahake Gorge and the Hauraki Rail Trail.
Whether it's tramping, cycling, kayaking, abseiling, exploring gold-mining heritage sites or travelling on the vintage rail train, there's so much to do in and around the camp.We are only 15 minutes drive from Waihi Beach, with pristine white sand beaches and coastal walkways. We have Kayaks for hire at the camp.There are fresh water swimming holes in the rivers close to the camp and at Dickeys Flat.
Your onsite managers are Jan and Rob.
