In the middle of renovations so take that into consideration when reading older reviews. Staff were very nice and helpful, shower was amazing as was the views.

As described by many others, the place is quite dated. In fact we were the last customers of the old owners. They're shutting down and have sold to new owners.

Great location, charming, clean but a bit outdated (which added to the charm).
My first experience of a camp site in NZ. The facilities are dated but clean. The sites are a bit crowded together but staff are friendly and helpful. The beach cafe is lovely where I ate breakfast. Great views but I had a camper van parked in front!
There are plenty of shops close by including a Countdown supermarket.
The place is unfortunately run down, toilets are clean, facilities best years has past. Staff very friendly and helpful. Some permanent camper there. Stunning view of sunrise Rangitoto. Shops and restaurants close to the campground. If you need to stay here stay, otherwise stay somewhere else.
We stayed here the first night of our holiday in a 6 berth motorhome. Because the site is liable to be built on by developers the management can't invest in updating the facilities. The facilities are usable but past their best. However, the view across the bay is wonderful and Takapuna is really nice. The management were helpful and it's worth putting up with the out dated facilities to stay in Takapuna. If your a motorcyclist it's worth visiting Barrys Point Road to look at all the bike shops. Lots of nice places to eat within short walk and lots of shops to look at. You can catch a bus to Devonport (half hour ride) and then a ferry to Central Auckland. We also stayed here at the end of our holiday.
Scoring this park is very difficult. It's got great views, right on the beach and has toilets/showers, kitchen and hairdryer in the toilets. The manager was friendly. Other than that there really is nothing good to say, it is small, tired and run down, the 'pitches' aren't clearly marked, mainly made up of permanent trailers/vans. Such a strange place for a lovely location. If you need to stay in Takapuna then stay here, if not then maybe see if you can find somewhere better.
It's a little tired. The facilities are fine, but the overall vibe is a bit sketchy given the setting. The old 1970s trailers taking up most of the spots (I guess you can hire) make the place feel run down. Okay for a stop into Takapuna but wouldn't suggest staying long.
The upside is you are right on Takapuna beach and a short stroll to great cafes, restaurants and pubs (although expensive). If you can secure a waterfront spot (we didn't) it will soften the blow.
