I was here and felt really weird. So many different people here staring into the cars while passing by, dirty place, lot of fishermans over the camping parking spots or just local visitors of their friends who parked ther, parking in the middle of the road. Bathrooms clean so far, but awesome Sunrise in the morning. Noise from the road starts approx at 7:00 AM


Very run down and rough. We felt very unsafe as well as dirty smashed bottles, people loud and drunk do not go!



For None Self Contained only. Unfortunately it attracts a lot of homeless and questionable people. We pulled up, cars everywhere, no organized parking, a man in his car doing drugs, a make shift shelter on the beach full of people dancing and drinking. A drunk man got very close to our car and was shouting at his young dog. Felt *very* dodgy and uncomfortable. We tried to stay there, as there's no where else to go for NSC but after 15 minutes we couldn't. We would have got no sleep as we were both so on edge. Not just the campground feels like this, the entire town is run down and full of dodgy people. Don't waste your time with Napier. Does not feel safe. If you do stay: 8 spots clearly marked for campers. 2 flush toilets and 2 portaloos(?). Right on the beach. Very windy.
