Information

 

Wentworth Valley Campground is a managed Department of Conservation campsite with permanent onsite managers. This provides added security. Set in a serene bushland environment surrounded by regenerating native forest and nestled adjacent to the Wentworth River. A number of walks start at the campground and includes mines, waterfalls and extensive views of the coromandel ranges.

 

The swimming holes in the Wentworth River are very popular during the summer period and a nice way to relax after a day at the beach. 

 

There is a choice of camp sites including secluded alcoves with plenty of shade and open areas for games and children.

HISTORY

 

At the turn of last century the valley was home to around 300 gold miners and their families. Many relics of these pioneering days are still found in the area. Prior to the gold mining days the Kauri loggers and Gum Diggers worked these valleys. The old Telegraph line from Wellington also crossed the Coromandel Range at this point. The line was diverted up the coast due to the Maori Wars in the Waikato, 1845 to 1872.
