Gentle Annie has a beautiful camping ground at the mouth of the Mokihinui River. Sheltered and private camping sites are set amongst landscaped gardens, all within a couple minutes walk to the river and beach. Free wifi, information display boards and large maps of the area showcasing the many things to see and do in the area, are available in the Cowshed Cafe the campers lounge, which has been converted from a once operating milking shed! Pizza bases and toppings are sold separately at the Cafe so you can try cooking your own in the wood-fired Pizza Oven. You are also more than welcome to bring your own pizza bases and ingredients with you. It takes approximately two hours to reach cooking temperature, and you are more than welcome to light it at any time. During Summer, the fire is lit every evening at 5pm. Collecting driftwood from the beach using the wheelbarrow is much appreciated. Dogs are welcome as long as they are cleaned up after, and supervised at all times, with their owners being aware that there are Wekas and other bird life to be protected. Please note we dont take bookings for our camping ground, as there is always been plenty of space for everyone. You are more than welcome to come whenever you like, and stay for as long as you like, and there is no check out time on the day you depart. Also, please note that our kitchen facilities are somewhat simple, and we have limited numbers of showers and toilets, so there may be a little longer to wait during Summer (especially during Peak Season, and over Statutory holiday periods), as it can be busy. We recommend you bring your own camping cooker if you can, and if you are self-contained, that you use your self-containment facilities where possible.

This was our second visit here and again were blown away, amazing place to unwind with kids and friends. The weather was perfect and the fishing even more so. Everyone enjoyed the late afternoon beach fire's with a glass of wine and amazing views. We'll be back soon.
