Piha Beach Motor Camp
Piha Motor Camp caters for young and old(er) campers alike.
Piha Beach in New Zealand, is a small coastal village located on the majestic West Coast of Auckland in the Waitakere Ranges - about 45 minutes drive from central Auckland. Piha, New Zealand is one of the most popular beaches and 'get away places' for Aucklanders and travellers alike.
Piha Beach is considered one Auckland's most adventurous playgrounds for keen surfers, trampers and beach lovers. The road to Piha Beach , through the protected rain forest of the Waitakere Ranges , is sealed all the way and great quality if a little windy in places.
Although fairly basic the Piha Camp does offer hot showers, flush toilets and laundry facilities.
To compliment these facilities there is a cook house with stove top cooking, microwave and a coin operated BBQ.
The Piha Camp stocks a basic range of groceries as well as internet facilities.
Showers are 50c for 6 mins, at peak holiday times there is a water usage restrictions so 6 mins is the maximum we can offer. The cold water shower outside is free but as it goes straight into a soak pit no soap or shampoo use is allowed.
There has been a camping ground on the Domain at Piha since the early 1900s when families would make the two day trek from Auckland to Piha by horse and cart on a road that was little better than a bullock track.
In the 1940s the Raynor Family gifted the land, as recreational reserve and camping ground. Just as well really as with the value of coastal land it would almost certainly would been sold otherwise.
After the war a building from the radar station up the top of the hill was brought down to the camp and turned into a kitchen and shower block.
Whilst there has been another ablution block built the original kitchen is still faithfully serving us.
Today the Camp is operated by Fiona Anderson for Waitakere City Council.
The camp is two minutes walk to the beach.
The Piha Camp attracts a diverse and eclectic selection of holidaymakers and is very popular with families.
It offers a safe environment for children to roam and experience freedom not known in suburban lifestyles.
We host several school camps each year.
Backpackers and campervans are our most rapidly expanding group of clients.
