Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Pretty nice spot to stay. Calm, quiet with 2 toilets and a (cold) outdoor shower. Space for 4-5 campervans, depending on parking skills ;-) and van sizes.
Beautiful site, 4-5 spots, have toilets and outdoor shower. We arrived at around 2pm and were the only ones there. It filled up by around 6pm (visited November 2019). One of our favourite spots.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Location is great but only a handful of spots within a large carpark. Very stingy of the council. Why not more space for campervans in an otherwhise empty carpark at night?? Just tell campervans to vacate after 8.30am so'they can at least stay the night.
Toilets nearby but no drinking water.
space for 4 cars but at this day many other cars spent the night and nothing had happened. good Start for the te whara track and close to the beautiful beach

One of our favourite spots on our trip. Only 4-5 places available for camping in a bigger car park, but people just camped close by anyway. Even for a car park, was an especially beautiful place. Trees, bushes, picnic benches all through the car park made it a scenic place. Just a small walk over the sand dunes to the beach. Was a little windy on the beach but we found our good spot to sunbathe and swim. Toilets were fairly new and clean, with a cold shower on the outside. Water is a tad murky, but it’s not meant to be drunk. Also this spot was a great place to see the stars. Loved it.
Lovely spot off beaten track. Walk through dunes from car park spot to beautiful sandy beach. Great for surfing and walks with access to Te Whara Track.
Only 5/6 spots available so would need to get there early to avoid disappointment. Appears 4 drop toilets have recently been replaced by two toilets and cold shower facility.
Alright spot, just parking spaces. Nice trees and bush around the big parking lot. Fits about 4-5 cars.
Toilets looked brand new, the tap water in there is very dirty and smells really bad.
Beach closeby is very nice and there are some bushwalks as well.
Gorgeous location, great walks from car park. Toilets are portable cabin loos.
