Awesome campground - I stayed at a powered site - hot showers, playground & tramp for kids, lovely management. There was plenty of space to park my 5m motorhome - I saw trucks and caravans able to park with ease also and there were busses in the next section. Loved the communal kitchen area, fridge, microwave & toasters, as well as a little library of books in the sitting area. Might need to bring own cutlery/pots but there’s a few odd things in there like pans, cups and a knife etc. Coin laundry available, as well as paid wifi if needed. Happy stay!

Superb placement, quiet and secure.
The facilities are well appointed and exceptionally clean.
Staff fantastic and more than happy to oblige.
The showers are hot and for free.
Dish washing and cooking facilities are above average and hygienic. We didn’t try out the washing/dryer machines.
Can’t fault this place. I’m from the UK and a natural whinger; so it’s got to be brilliant!
Why only a nine, need to keep the management on their toes.
Over all, an extremely excellent Holiday Park.

Stayed here last night 2/09/17. 6 Aussies in 3 motor homes and had powered sites. Loved it. Great park. Very clean amenities. Ladies toilets and shower block in
Green and pink colour was bright and cheerful. Hot water was excellent . Bath mats in showers was a nice touch. Kitchen and sitting area were spotless. Host was very friendly and helpful. A drive to see the Whangarei Falls is a must. Cost was $36.00 a site.

Very good camp with everything you would need, friendly staff and even though we arrived late, plenty space and help given. Kitchen is a little dated but still has everything you would need. Recommended if your looking to explore the area.

Stayed in a non powered site for 2 people.
Staff were friendly but that's about it. We were under willow trees where the sap was dropping. We ended up putting a tent up to reserve our spot, when we came back the groundskeeper had moved it because he was mowing the lawns - I didn't mind that though. The toilets and showers are outdated and in need of some refurbishment. toilet stalls are very small and dirty, showers were very dirty. Small laundry with 2 washers and a dryer. kitchen & dining area was small but had a toaster, kettle and fridge. There are also toilets and showers on the opposite side of the grounds, which smelt horrible! our site was by the creek and at night, the people who live in the flats on the other side of the creek, were shining torches right into our van and looking for a way to get across the creek, it seemed. It was about 10pm at night. It was quite scary as we were the only ones under the trees in that area. No neighbours. in my opinion the facilities were not great and I wouldn't stay there again.

Lovely little caravan park in a great location when travelling up north island. Super clean, a little funky ! Feels like going to Grammas house with the retro green sinks and pink walls in the bathroom. Nice touches, reception walks you to your site, bathmats in the showere, real towel to dry your hands on and good internet for a very small fee! Loved this place !

Lovely owner. Great shower facilities. Washing machine and dryer for $3 each. TV and kitchen room looked nice although we didn't use it.

Pleasant Park but sites quite short if you had a medium+ caravan. OK for our campervan. Pleasant reception from Brad and Clare who showed us to our site. Clean showers, toilets and facilities, and good laundry. Like many/most NZ caravan parks, they don't have a water tap on each site. A strange NZ custom?? Stayed 14 April 2016
