Meet Rambo our pet sheep and his farmyard friends when you enjoy our great little friendly holiday park. Just something a little different!

A popular stop-over for travellers exploring the top of NZ; offering fantastic fishing, a comfortable, safe and friendly place to come after a great day of adventure or relaxing on the beach.

Everywhere you go in NZ there are sheep, but have you touched, smelt or cuddled one?? Rambo is our very friendly Perindale sheep who loves having his photo taken. Snap that ionic kiwi photo and say hi to our woolly friend and all his other farmyard mates!

We had no problems with this campsite- facilities were clean and the camp manager (who was in her first week of the job) was lovely. It doesn’t have the pretty beaches or views of other campsites, but worked in perfectly with our itinerary as a stopover before exploring the far north.

The manager was really friendly and nice person. I found rubbish, peels of water melon, noodle, etc., on the camping site when I put a tent up.
But I felt quite relaxing until a large group came.
They started to play cricket beside my tent and the tent was sometimes hit by a ball.
They did not stop playing even I asked them to stop.
Moreover, they had conversations with loud until 23:00.
I think the manager should pay attention before checking in.
I feel sorry about this because this holiday park is quite nice.

Small little site, friendly owner and we met another lovely couple whilst there. Seemed to be some permanent residents on site which gave it a funny feel and there was a lot of noise from the top facilities also the bathrooms are quite open so a lot of insects get into them and think we parked our van on a rather large ants nest, so be aware! Lovely little restaurant and bar at the bottom of the road, food was delicious.

Small camping ground with very clean showers, restrooms (all wooden) and kitchen, very private, and parklike grounds. Hosts: nice older couple.

Nice semi-private places to pitch a tent, and dog was welcome. Facilities were freely available and clean and tidy. Unfortunately we seemed to strike this particular spot at the wrong time, as they had a large group staying overnight whose loud noise from drunken attendees went on well into the night and didn't finish until around 3am, with no apparent intervention from management to lessen the noise. Really not the relaxing experience we expected from looking at their website, and very hard on our young children. Because of this experience we most likely would not use this campground again, nor recommend to other campers. If you choose to go anyway, take your insect repellent - the bugs here are fairly aggressive come nightfall.
