Medlands campground is set back from the South end of Medlands beach in a sheltered and sunny spot right next to the estuary.
The estuary is safe for swimming with young ones and and paddling lessons.
There are no cooking facilities at this campground, you will need to provide your own. But there is a small shelter for cover.
Be careful as the road down to the beach is used for launching boats, and crossing the stream to homes on the other side.
The endangered Pateke (Brown teal) and Korora (Little Blue Penguin) are regular visitors to the area so watch out driving at night along the road.
Fires are not permitted at any time.
Dogs are not permitted at any DoC campground.
