Open campsite with no privacy, one little paid hot shower (no cold showers), Strictly enforced checkout times and our first doc site to have rubbish bins (which you have to pay cash extra even if you don't use it) maybe doc sites are run differently on the north island? If we didn't have doc annual pass we probably wouldn't have stayed. pretty beach but didn't seem overly safe for swimming heavy steep shore break. (no ocean views from sites)

A beautiful peaceful campground near the sea. Good fishing. Fabulous to have a shower in a doc camp - take $1 coins.



Amazing campsite. Standard DOC fees plus $2 rubbish fee which is great considering large skip onsite. Friendly helpful camp warden who keeps the place clean and organised. Large flat space, hidden behind sand dunes and overlooking estuary. No road or train noise, only the sound of crashing waves. Drinking water available from taps located throughout camp and a short hot shower for gold coin.
