This vehicle accessible campground is a large, flat campground set back from a beautiful bay and child-friendly beach. The park offers a number of places to explore and escape from washing up duties. The camping areas are sheltered by native plantings which help ensure bird watchers get tent side viewing.And to top it off the park rangers give all visitors a friendly island welcome.
Still not enough, in 2008 the campground was voted number one in New Zealand according to the New Zealand Herald, and Waiheke Island is one of the top 10 Holiday destinations in the world. A secret tip - plan a stay during the months of March, April and May (not only do you get a good chance of settled warm weather you might even get the place to yourself).
