Our stay was for only one night, would not go back again as we felt a bit remote. The receptionist not the most friendly person, and so many rules and regulations with the do and dont’s. You have to wait at the barrier for someone to notice you before you can get in. Otherwise the place clean and tidy and a nice bbq area.

Hi Folks,

We arrived here in the dark in September 2015. The place was quite remote and not much vans were around. We had a very lonesome place to stay. The Holiday park is right on the beach, were a stroll is quite nice, but not very fancy. the staff was friendly and the place clean. A good and clean gas grill was available. The playground was not very good and quite worn. But other than that a good and basic campground. Expensive as you would expect from a Top Ten Holiday Park.

September is the Off Season in NZ and always a very quite time especially situated where we are. The playground is currently being replaced. We do not think we are expensive.

I am confused as we have no cabins or sites next to fish filleting area

In sheltered bay with lovely lawn & treed setting. Great staff. Full variety of modern facilities, all functional & clean. Pricey though: for campervan site, with power, $50. Internet extra, that was another $7.

Stayed her for a night in May. Very clean and tidy with all facilities, opposite nice beach, which one can only get a slight glimpse of. I thought $42 for two was expensive though for a couple in May, but Top 10's are a bit "overpriced."
