Ahipara and Spirit Bay camping early December. How busy?

HI,

We are going to be in Ahipara for 4/5 December in a campervan and then thinking of a night or two up in Spirit Bay.

I've found a campground listing for Te Kohanga Camping Ground bit it doesnt appear in the DOCS site listings?

Wondering if it might be simpler to book the van park in Ahipara?

Our 3rd spot might be Maitai Bay.

Any advice on getting a site(s) in these 3 places this time in December?

Thanks

R

**Oh Ive found it. Te Kohanga is a private campground...

You shouldn't have any problem getting space at camping grounds in early December, its the beginning of summer but before the main busy season for NZ holidays.

It might be worth ringing to check the day before just incase - I suppose there is an outside chance that a big group might arrive.

Dont come all this way and not got to Maitai Bay, its stunning.Just turn up its never too busy before Xmas holidays to not be able to get a spot at Matai or Spirits Bay.
