IMPORTANT! Due to Level 4 of the Covid-19 Alert System Flaxmill is now closed to the public from 25th March 2020 until the mandatory NZ self-isolation period is completed.

Enjoy a memorable seaside camping holiday at Flaxmill that you and your family will treasure for years to come! Pitch a tent or bring your Motorhome, RV or Campervan.

Open 1 October to 30 April, our boutique family campground is no impersonal large holiday park. Located in a tranquil bay near Cooks Beach, we have less than 40 campsites spread out within large, sheltered park grounds. As well as being generous in size, our sites are flat and grassy with tree shade from mature trees (very welcome in hot summer months). We also pride ourselves in our immaculate, clean communal facilities.

In addition to the campsites, there are a small number of Cabins on-site providing quality 'sleeping only' accommodation (guests use the communal facilities). For those looking for a fully contained option, we also have 1 bedroom Cottages and 3 bedroom Holiday Houses available.

For a great Location, Flaxmill Bay is hard to beat! Our campground is just across the road from a stunning, family-friendly beach and within easy walking distance to Cooks Beach, Front Beach and the passenger ferry to Whitianga. We are also within a 10-15 min drive from the popular Coromandel hotspots of Hahei, Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach. 

Campground Rates are seasonal and start from $50 per night for 2 people (Low Season)*
