Our friends Rob and Helen were keen to get out to play Motorhomes and we were keen too!
As the weekend weather was looking pretty naff, we thought somewhere local would be the ticket. After some false starts, we settled on Pinewoods at Red Beach.
I last came here a year ago and back then they were setting out some new concrete parking for Motorhomes. Thats all done now and it looks great and apparently they’ve been working really well. So well that they’re looking at putting some more in.
Pinewoods is run by a company of Bach owners and the Motorcamp is run as part of this.
The showers and access to a nice TV lounge, and Kitchen are included in the price. There is also a coin operated Laundry for those who need this.
The forecasted weather was bang on and it was naff but we had a nice time in Rafe for happy hour. Helen had made a nice Lasagne and we added some chicken and bits so we moved to the Tracker later. A great fun night.
Early in the morning, I went for a walk around to see if I could get some updated piccies around and after that the others went for a look around.
Right at the top of the camp, there are some well fenced concrete steps which run down the cliff to the rocks called Jacobs Ladder. From here you can see right up to Kawau and across to Orewa.
Around the other side is a direct track through to Red Beach which comes out behind the Surf Club.
At $18 each with the NZMCA discount, its priced reasonably and is a nice place to stay and if you live in Auckland, its not far away.
