This was our second visit to Snow and Bronwyn's camp site. The facilities are good and clean with a modern amenities block. Staying here is like going back in timebut without the drawbacks. Kawhia and the surrounding area is very picturesque and the drive south along the coast road towards Taranaki is well worth doing (get the heritage trail leaflet from the town museum). Snow is a man of many talents as visitors may find out. I summary well worth getting off the tourist trail for.
