Camp Out in Auckland
Escape the hustle and bustle & camp out in Auckland's backyard! There are so many beautiful camping destinations to choose from in Tāmaki Makaurau.
Here are some camping sites you must try:
Goat Island Camping and Accommodation
Nestled on 130 acres of picturesque grounds, Goat Island Camping and Accommodation is easily one of Auckland’s best campgrounds and promises to be a dreamy stay no matter how long you’re setting up for. There’s everything you need to make the most of your stay here, plus some. Campfire, snorkel hire, even a skateboard ramp—you name it, it’s here.
Orewa Beach Holiday Park
There’s another gem of a campsite waiting for you up North, and it goes by the name of Orewa Beach Holiday Park. Propped up at Orewa Point, this campsite’s top-notch location is what lands it on this list of Auckland’s best camping spots.
Piha Domain Camp
West certainly is best, and the camping out this way proves just why. Touted as Auckland’s best surf beach, Piha also is one of the most idyllic, and quite frankly, best places to go camping in Auckland. For the ultimate beach getaway vibes, Piha Domain Camp is where you want to set up shop.
Takapuna Beach Holiday Park
You don’t have to venture far out of Auckland for an idyllic camping escape. Nope. In fact, you can enjoy all the bells and whistles of out-of-town camping just a stone’s throw from the big smoke. Simply pop on over the Harbour Bridge, take yourself to Takapuna Beach Holiday Park, and set yourself up for a few days of relaxing shore life.
Whangateau Holiday Park
A ten-minute drive north of Matakana, you’ll stumble upon Whangateau. The small coastal settlement has the best of both worlds: it’s not only peaceful and tranquil, but there is also plenty to do if you’re up for an adventure.
