Simpsons Beach is a large beachfront paddock on the Simpson's farm that they have made available to campers for a small fee for two generations.

 

There are no toilets or showers, and only a limited supply of tank water, so motor caravanners need to be self-contained.  

 

Over summer it is a very popular camping location, just a short distance north of Whitianga, and with a sheltered beach and good fishing..

 

Update: 30-Jan-2016

We called in again at the end of the summer holidays to get some pictures when there were more campers. You can see these in the slideshow.

 

Also, as noted below, dogs are welcome, but must be kept on a leash.
