This campsite on the western shores of Waikato River is perfect for swimming, picnicking, fishing and water sports.
East of Kihikihi via Arapuni Rd, turn into Rotongata Rd and into Waipapa Rd. Then into Pukewhau Rd at Arohena, follow and turn left into Mangare Rd and right into Landing Rd, follow to end at the river. Large motorhomes/caravans/towed boats may struggle to negotiate tight corners. On the Waikato River, there is no formal boat ramp but a fairly benign pumice beach to land and launch.
Adult (18+ years): $8 per night
Child (5 - 17 years): $4 per night
Infant (0 - 4 years): free
