This all modes and vehicle-based campground is a large open area alongside the Puhoi River Estuary. It is surrounded by plantings that split the campground into smaller camping bays. Pōhutukawa trees are scattered throughout the campground.

The Wenderholm Beach is approximately 1.5 km by road from the campground.
