Kawhia Camping Ground

A camping ground to relax in. Beware Kawhia's laid back ambiance is easy to get caught up in.

Kawhia Camping Ground is a quiet holiday park that is in a sheltered position. A short walk along the Pohutukawa lined coast to town and around the corner from the harbour and boat ramp.

Ocean Beach, where the Te Puia Hot Springs seep through the black sands, is just up the road. Free shovels are provided to guests for digging your own hot pool right on the edge of a rugged but scenic west coast beach.

The holiday park has plenty of play equipment to keep the children busy while parents can relax in the shade of the trees. Overseas and Kiwi travellers are very welcome - we pride ourselves in not only making your stay enjoyable but helping you to plan your sightseeing for the next stage of your journey.

We have power sites, cabins and provide full facilities including free WiFi, showers, BBQ, fish cleaning area and smoker, accessible facilities and baby changing room.

location of Kawhia Camping Ground


If traveling from the north we recommend taking the scenic route via Raglan, although unsealed it is well worth it. From the south come in from Waitomo to Te Anga or Marakopa to Te Anga then follow the Kawhia Harbour Road around to the township. For both routes, don't forget to allow time for sightseeing of waterfalls, caves and spetacular views...


what to do in Kawhia


The town has a very relaxing "rural" atmosphere which is great to soak up, but if you feel like being more active then there is heaps to do. You could soak in a hot springs pool you dug yourself on the edge of the west coast surf beach, catch the fish of a lifetime either from the shore or "over the bar" in one of the charter boats...
