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.

Cheers

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.

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."

Too expensive and there are no possibilities to purchase any food etc. Nice area at a very beautiful beach and very quiet.

We do have a small shop on-site that sells basic food items and there is a General store less than 2 kilometres away. The Carrington Resort is open to casual diners as is the Karikari winery in the summer months.
