Tainui campground at Waharau Regional Park

COVID-19 accommodation information

Baches, lodges and self-contained vehicle sites are open for bookings.

Scheduled winter closures are in place for some campgrounds.

Auckland Council baches remain self-clean spaces. Please clean all utensils, crockery and surfaces on your arrival and departure.

To limit the potential number of contaminated surfaces, we have removed all unnecessary items e.g. books and games, to maintain a high level of hygiene and allow for thorough cleaning of all surfaces. For hygiene reasons all pillows have been removed so please ensure that you bring your own pillows.

Located on the eastern side of the rugged Hunua Ranges, this vehicle-based campground extends from the range to the coast.

Enjoy farmland, river banks and forest areas for camping, picnics, walking and mountain biking.

There are some BBQs at this campground.
