A groovy campground in a surf town at the south end of Ninety Mile Beach. The facilities were clean and tidy, with an excellent lodge area for relaxing in. It doubles as a YHA, so there's beautiful murals everywhere - even the toilet block is decorated! The showers are free and unmetered. A short walk to the beach.

Great camp site! You can pick your own site, some have plenty of shade! Toilets and showers are very clean and tidy, they also play music :D The reception area has comfy sofas to chill on with sky tv and a fully equipped kitchen to use. Would highly recommend this camp site, it is great value for money and the staff are super friendly and helpful. 10/10

Thanks for the great stay Ahipara

Great facilities and good location. Large site and quite busy despite early season however there was ample privacy for powered sites despite the many vehicles. Great proximity to 90 mile beach and to head for Cape Reinga. Pack’N Save close in Kaitaia.

Absolutely the best site we visited during our 4 week trip. Clean, well organized and the terrain is tended by a plant loving idiot. Never saw such wonderful and exceptional plants on a camp😍. At a very reasonable fee, with excellent WiFi. BBQ was perfect and clean. The only minus was the music in the facilities. Otherwise it would have gotten a 10 mark. But that is a question of taste.

Loved this place! Excellent facilities, toilet and shower block was exceptionally clean and had a hair dryer and music in the toilet block!

Brilliant sites available with cute little swing chairs and tree swings!

Kitchen had everything you’d need.

Was a luxury for us after staying at other campsites that were nowhere near on par.

An Outstanding Holiday Park just a stones throw from 90 Mile Beach!!
From the Massive lounge room style reception, complete with Fireplace, Cable TV, Dining tables & Ping Pong! =) to the modern Bathrooms with seemingly endless hot water.. this place is the BEST
A friendly family run park with plenty of space to escape the rat race & plenty of opportunity to socialize with other travelers, not to mention Free WIFI to check back in with the world.
Really enjoyed my stay! was well worth the extra for a cabin with a kitchen although the communal outdoor BBQ's still received quite a workout ;-)
Highly recommended establishment! I'll certainly be back.

Our favourite campsite, we stayed there 2 nights. Nice owners and big, cozy common room. Toilets and showers were newly remodelled and clean. Kitchen was a little crowded in the evening with many nice people, so you can get into a conversation easily. Campsite was of nice size and every site had it's table and was surrounded with bushed.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Ahipara Holiday Park on a powered site, as we were travelling in a motorhome. We used Ahipara as the base for our day trip up to Cape Reinga ; this worked really well. The park was fabulous; the bathrooms were well maintained, clean and even had piped radio through speakers. They were also warm on the cool days! Although we did not use it, there was a nice kitchen and reception area where you could sit at beautiful wooden slab tables. The campsites were individualised so you felt in your own space. In all this park has been well thought of and designed. There is added security with the gates closing at 10pm. The beach was a 5 minute walk and we were lucky to have a great sunny day to see many of the locals out enjoying the spring sunshine. Best so far in NZ.

The best campsite that we have been on our trip! It was fantastic, we stayed longer than we actually wanted to. Sand boarding and beach is nearby.
We paid $21 each for a powered campsite, $1 more than unpowered, the kitchen is clean as well as toilets and showers, the best ones than we saw until now btw.
Unlimited Free Wifi on the whole campground, you get codes when you ask the staff.
The owner is a great and friendly person and the staff is nice too. We had a gorgeous time.
We highly recommend you to come here even if you may have to drive a little further to get to this one, it's worth every single dollar

This would have to be one of the best caravan parks we have stayed in. Nice sites surrounded by gardens, the amenities are modern and spotlessly clean. The communal area is large and with a log fire at night is very cosy and welcoming. Secure with locked gates overnight. Free wifi, free hot showers. Very good value at $34.50 for 2 on a powered site with the Rankers discount voucher.
A bit of a walk (10 mins?) to 90 mile beach.

Great place!!! This camping ground should be part of "top 10"..... but then it would not be as affordable. ... big trees in some areas. Locked gate at night. Very clean and tidy toilets/hot showers. Nice "rustic feel", fully equipped kitchen and XL communal lounge/dining area including wood fire, TV and computers.....FREE and OK speed WiFi. Close by is a great fish and chips/small dairy. Although the dryer was taking far too long I would return tomorrow for a much longer stay. Absolutely loved it.

We spent a bit more than we normally would here: $42 for 2 people in camper van with electricity, but it was absolutely worth it. Everything we needed was there. Great communal area and kitchen, laundry, free very good hot showers and free wifi. Staff were always friendly and helpful and everything was constantly cleaned. You didn't have to leave by 10am and they didn't close everything to clean at inconvenient times. The places for vans are thoughtfully laid out with space and shrubbery around for privacy. It was just great, they care about standards here and run things around you, not the other way around as seems too often to be the case! As you can see we loved it.

Even though it was a busy time of the year, the park did not feel crowded. The showers were new and clean with much more room than average and a shower head that goose necked up high so that I could fit under the shower head.
The common room had a ping pong table and lots of room to relax. The kitchen was busy but we could always get in to prepare meals.
The only two things that I would improve is another microwave or two in the kitchen and a seat in each of the shower stalls.
