Camp Elsdon is a friendly, family camp in a bush setting overlooking Porirua Harbour.

Ideally located close to State Highway 1 and 20 minutes from downtown Wellington and Interislander/Blue Bridge ferries.. Large groups welcome.
Camp Elsdon sits at the entrance to Colonial Knob walkway which offers native walks/bike tracks (some energetic) up to panoramic views of Wellington, Kapiti and the South Island. It is a peaceful rural setting within a city. Wake up to native birds singing in the trees. The Camp is also handy to the local Porirua city centre and its amenties, Te Rauparaha Arena events centre and Pataka Museum.
In the evening, an easy (5 to 15 minute) walk from the Camp takes you to North City Indoor raceway (go karts) or Porirua’s Aquatic Centre on Titahi Bay Main Rd where you can enjoy a sauna, hydro slide or the wave machine which is popular with children of all ages.
