Camping ground reception
Fish cleaning area
The camping ground in the tiny beachfront community of Akitio includes a small general store for the local residents.
The campsite is mostly used by long-term residents, but there are powered sites available for casual visitors.
It's a traditional 'Kiwi' beachfront campsite in a nice location. The kitchen, lounge, and other facilities are basic, but clean and functional.
Fishing is clearly good, as there is a well-used fish cleaning area for residents.
Signs at the entrance to the town make it clear that camping in not permitted on the road, in the reserve, or along the foreshore. However, as in many other places, it is not clear whether this applies to motor caravanners in certified self-contained vans.
You should also one of the locals if you want to park overnight. Be prepared to book into the campsite.
