An upgrade to Muriwai Motor Camp will kick off this week. It will give the campground a more efficient layout, as well as new showers, toilet blocks, laundry, kitchen, BBQ areas and the latest addition - a fish cleaning station.
Changes are well overdue
Stephen Bell, Western Principal Ranger at Auckland Council says the upgrade to facilities and services in the motor camp is well overdue.
“With a design approach that draws upon the area’s natural surroundings, the new and improved site will greatly improve the camping experience and make it even more of a drawcard.”
Penny Webster, Councillor for the Rodney ward, says it’s great to the see the motor camp is getting a refresh.
“Whether it’s mountain biking or surfing, with more and more people discovering all that the Auckland’s rugged west coast has to offer it’s important we provide a range of quality accommodation options to encourage a longer stay in the area.”
Re-opening in summer
The upgrade will be conducted throughout winter and the camp is expected to re-open in time for summer.
The refurbishment is also being timed to coincide with the expiry of the current license to operate the camp, with an expressions of interest process to be carried out prior to the re-opening of the facility.
The redevelopment of the Auckland Council owned site is being managed by Panuku Development Auckland.
