Ablution Areas

The upper level courtyard contains 4 separate ablution rooms, two women’s and two men’s.  Each ablution room contains 2 high pressure showers and 2 toilets. Plenty of room for wheelchair access along with a separate wheelchair toilet room close to the kitchen and accessible by ramp from the main courtyard area.  Another small toilet is located close to the kitchen which is perfect for use for groups using the dining area.
The Clements building contains 2 toilets only.
The lower level ablution block is currently in the planning process for upgrading.  Two plumbed portable units are on site for men and women and are gas operated for instant hot water. In each unit there are 4 showers and 3 toilets.

Pool 

While staying on site groups have free access to our salt chlorinated pool.  Enjoy a cool dip during the summer months and keep the children entertained for hours.

Playgrounds 

There are several playground areas on site that children can access on each level of the camp grounds along with giant draught and chess sets.

Bush Sanctuary 

Take a short walk through our native bush area or take advantage of the seating and just relax and enjoy the fresh air!  You may even be lucky enough to spot a Morepork or Wood pigeon.

BBQ

Our commercial type BBQ’s are bigger than your standard size, making them perfect to hire for large groups and their catering needs.  Use it to cook your entire summer BBQ meat or combine your menu to work around the BBQ and the ovens. There is one BBQ available for hire on each level and comes with gas.

Boat Ramp/Jetty 

Since we are located right on the edge of the Waikato River why not bring your own boat, water toys and water sports equipment.  We have a generous concreted boat ramp and jetty for easy access for boats with plenty of parking room. There are speed restrictions of 5 knots right out from the camp making this a safe location to paddle board or kayak, with skiing lanes just a few minutes downstream.
