About Waitawa SCC Campground

Situated on the old Orica / ICI site, the campervan area is located past the first noticeboard and green sheds.  Access is via the second gate, and requires a combination access code. The site has extensive hardstands, a small communal building for gatherings, and access to walking tracks of the park.

You will have the opportunity to park in areas that have extensive views across  Tikapa Moana, the inner gulf and Waitawa Regional Park.Due to the narrow road, and minimal turnaround areas, campervans are not permitted down to Mataitai Bay.

Vehicles must hold a certified self-containment certificate.
