A very popular campsite behind the sand dunes of Uretiti beach. Heaps to do: surfing, fishing and swimming as well as amazing walks along the beach, or explore the nearby Waipu caves.
It pays to book here over the Christmas/ New years period as the campsite will be full of NZer's. A site here works on a first in first served basis.
There is a small fee to camp here and a few camp ground rules to stick to. There is a nudist section of the beach close by - you just have to make sure you are clothed when you are roaming the campsite....

Great beach, great service from the team on the gate and an awesome time here while exploring the far north over summer.
You choose your own spot. They have modern and tidy long drop toilets which are placed throughout the camping grounds. I only noticed 1 shower block which usually had a semi long line.
Water was available for dishes but we were unsure about drinking quality.
Close to Waipu where there are some shops and a short drive to the Waipu Glow Worm Caves which we explored.
Good surf beach will waves making it fun for a exciting swim. Easy walk from campsite.
Even at full capacity didn’t feel too crowded
No kitchen but a good place to do dishes and showers which were like warm during the day or paid hot showers were also nice.
Showers clean but lots of fly’s at night.
Clean drinking water as well as a good recycle and trash dump.
Lovely and scenic beach campsite. You can place your van where you want across the area. Hot showers $2/4min. No powered sites, no dumping. Only short walk to the fantastic beach. Ideal for visiting Waipu Caves.
Amazing place. Sheltered from the wind but a short walk to the most incredible sand-only beach. Coffee place near the entrance that opens at 9 (on weekends) and does real fruit ice cream! We will definitely be back! Also great for bodyboarding in the waves!
Come here often. Grounds are great. People culture is amazing and the beach is beautiful.
Something a little different, a huge area where you can stop and set up wherever you like. Plenty of clean long drop toilets, fresh water and a minutes walk to the sea across white sands.
Managed by Ray and Cindy, very pleasant hosts. Cost $13 pp a night. We were provided with a rubbish bag and told we could dispose of that and recycled stuff at the exit gate on the way out.
No power but there are hot and cold showers. Very nice.
Amazing. For any traveler, family or couples. Spacious and alot of facilities.
A beautiful location with tidy but basic facilities (it is a DOC campsite, after all). No cooking facilities and only cold showers unless you pay for hot. The hosts were lovely and friendly and let us in even though we arrived 15 minutes past office closing hours (at 8:15pm). It was fairly busy for the tail-end of the high season and I expect it is probably packed over summer. A good stopping point halfway between Auckland and the Far North.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
