Poukaraka Flats Campground at Whakanewha


4 from 1 users


Large, flat and sheltered vehicle-based campground. It is set back from a beautiful bay and child-friendly beach. There are many places to explore and you'll get tent-side viewing of the bird life. Park rangers give all visitors a friendly island welcome. Drive into the park along Gordons Road and over the hill. The entrance to the campground is at the bottom of the hill and to the right. You will need a combination code to open the locked access gate - we will send you the combination code with your booking confirmation. All sites are unpowered. Facilities include cold showers and a flush toilet. Drinkable (potable) water available. Free gas barbecue available to campers for use when staying at the campground. No bins or rubbish disposal facilities. Take all rubbish and recycling with you when you leave. Fires prohibited at all times. Dogs are prohibited at all times.

An absolute hellhole of mosquitoes! Once the sun sets they take every opportunity to get into the car and the numbers will make your eyes roll back in your head. Haven't seen anything like it in three months here. Don't plan on a night out, either; the gates are locked at 9pm. No entry or exit after.



Definitely not DOC. This is run by the Auckland council and a royal pain in the ass it is. No self-reg, no cash, credit card only. The in-place phone system can be problematic. $7pp less if you're self-contained and in the parking lot but everyone uses the toilets, so what's the difference?
