Gentle Annie Seaside Accommodation and Camping Ground, Mokihinui, West Coast, New Zealand

Camping Ground

Gentle Annie has a beautiful camping ground at the mouth of the Mokihinui River. Sheltered and private camping sites are set amongst landscaped gardens, all within a couple minutes walk to the river and beach.

POWERED AND UNPOWERED SITES AVAILABLE

Please sign in and pick up your dash ticket at the Cowshed building. You will need your name or booking number to do this. 

Bookings Essential for December, January, February, all Statuatory Holiday weekends and School Holiday Periods.

Bookings Preferred for all other months. 

UNPOWERED sites are unallocated, and when you make a booking, you are not booking a particular spot. Sites are first in, first served. You are more than welcome to arrive whenever you like, and extend your stay while you are here by talking to someone at the Cowshed (guest numbers and space dependent), and there is no check out time on the day you depart.

We also have 24 powered sites available as of the 20th of December. These need to be booked. 

POWERED sites are numbered, and when you make a booking, you are booking a specific site. Please read the site descriptions in terms of size, and find the most suitable for your set-up.

Powered sites are situated at the northern end of the camping ground overlooking the sea. Drive around the bend at the rivermouth, and turn right into the driveway past the big flax bushes. Find your numbered site and make yourself at home.

Check in is 2pm for powered sites, and checkout 1pm.

Also, please note that our kitchen facilities are somewhat simple, and we have limited numbers of showers and toilets, so there may be a little longer to wait during Summer (especially during Peak Season, and over Statutory holiday periods), as it can be busy. We recommend you bring your own camping cooker if you can, and if you are self-contained, that you use your self-containment facilities where possible.

Facilities

Free wifi, information display boards and large maps of the area showcasing the many things to see and do in the area, are available in the Cowshed Cafe – the campers lounge, which has been converted from a once operating milking shed!

Pizza bases and toppings are sold separately at the Cafe (Summer only) so you can try cooking your own in the wood-fired Pizza Oven. You are also more than welcome to bring your own pizza bases and ingredients with you. It takes approximately two hours to reach cooking temperature, and you are more than welcome to light it at any time. During Summer, the fire is lit every evening at 5pm. Collecting driftwood from the beach using the wheelbarrow is much appreciated.

Dogs are welcome as long as they are cleaned up after, and supervised at all times, with their owners being aware that there are Wekas and other bird life to be protected.
