Fantastic campsite. Wish we could have stayed more than one night but is was fully booked out



We ended up staying here 3 nights and we liked it a lot. Though having had the choice picking one of the grassy sites on the beachfront we decided to stay on the "parking lot" with gravel since it rained the days before and we were afraid to get stuck in the grass. However the "parking lot" was totally fine for us having our quiet time behind the van. You still have a beach view too. The site was overall pretty nice with lots of toilets, a quite large beach and the possibility to do some hiking tracks nearby (and to see potentially kiwis at night). Very nice owners, too

We just spent 4 nights here, we were on site 84, away from everyone else which was great, just needed to use the levellers. Such a stunning spot. Toilets and inside cold showers, not as nice as Otamure Bay. Didn't see any kiwis but did hear them. We did the Whangaruru North Head Track too which was great! Only downside was the host I'm afraid. We pulled up at 12:00, check-in is from 14:00, but our campsite was completely free of anyone, completely dry, yet she made us wait the 2 hours in the carpark, in the sun, literally staring at our campsite. Now we have ran a Holiday Park and worked at DOC campsites, there are rules of course, but you can also be human! Ya know! Such a difference to other DOC hosts we've met. Anyway, apart from her highly recommended! saltyskin.blog @saltyskin
