Very good place near the river. We stayed here for one night. We paid $38 for 2. Toilets and showers were clean.

Stayed for one night, very quiet while we were there and had a pitch by the river. Cooking facilities not very good with only individual hobs which took ages to work, it was a bit dirty in places and showers, kitchens need a bit of updating. The hosts were very nice and I don’t’ know how they manage on their own, as things are beginning to show. We hired a couple of canoe’s and a lovely trip up the river to see the waterfall.

Great campground. Good tent sites, but you should avoid pitching under the eucalyptus trees if it's windy - they have a penchant for dropping limbs! Hot showers were free and a complimentary wife allowance of 1gB a day is provided. Was unable to log in from my tent, and had to walk to the kitchen to do this. Only downside is there's a TV in the kitchen which some campers insist on turning on. Surprised it hasn't been sabotaged!

Fantastic facilities , lots of very clean toilets and showers, free (limited amount) WiFi and very friendly staff who helped us when we arrived after hours. 5 mins drive from haruru falls, the beach, Whaitengi treaty grounds etc. Was truly lovely. Powered site about $40 for two.

What a wonderful place! We will be back in summer and will bring more family next time!
We had the two room cabin and it was beautiful, better than many hotel rooms I have stayed at! Next time we will try camping, the camp facilities look lovely and well maintained.
The property is only a few minutes drive to towns and all amenities but the river running alongside the whole camp is so calming and beautiful that I would happily just sit and enjoy it all day.
We are keen to try the Pizza Oven when we come again, if I had of known it was here I would have brought more supplies!
Don't miss this place, it's calming and beautiful! Everything you want in a holiday without the major price tag!

Large nice camp ground with some cabins. Huge kitchen and many free showers/toilets, lounge with TV and pool billiard, kids playground, small pool. The camp is directly located at the river. Watch your children! And after sunset millions of mosquitos. Free choice of our pitch. Most pitches are under big trees with picnic tables. "Far away" from Paihia. Have to move the camper van to get to town (7.5km).

Really nice place next to a river. Very green and lots of birds. Specious campsites and a lot of shade from the trees. You can use a kitchen but bring your own pots and pans. It's a very relaxed place and they let us pick our own spot. We paid $32 for a tent and 2 people. Showers are free. A bit old but ok, clean and plenty of them. It's about 6 km from Paihia.

Lovely setting and excellent, very helpful staff.

It's a bit out of town but pick-up by Dolphin Encounters was arranged for the bay boat trip.

Hire their kayaks and paddle upstream.
