Have 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 only 37 campsites spread out within large, sheltered park grounds. As well as being generous in size, our sites are flat, grassy and offer tree shade from mature trees (very welcome in hot summer months). We also pride ourselves on our immaculate, clean communal facilities.

In addition to our campsites, we have a small number of Cabins on site providing sleeping accommodation only (guests use the communal facilities). 

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)*
