Lovely estuary front site. Lots of permanent caravans here but heaps of wonderful clean facilities. Only got a 9 because it was the only camp we stayed in that had no free wifi.

Nice campground with big sites. It was busy end of January and lots of children...but there is much to do for them. The location is perfect. Not far from Matakana, near the Sawmill Brewery, a short drive away. The shower was unisex and separated from the toilet which is very good. Water pressure and temperature perfect. Huge kitchen and barbecue available, but no pots or pans, so bring your own but you can rent if you need them.

Clean and tidy, the dining room was welcoming and warm, we appreciated it in winter time. Camp was almost empty and very well located to reach Goat Island. Do not miss the Marine Discovery Center located in front of Goat Island, very interesting to discover the sea life and what researcher are doing there.

Just a big lawn, no separation between the sites. Clean facilities. A little over regulated, notices and prohibitions everywhere.

Very nice camping at a bay with play ground. At low tide there is almost no sea water, but we loved that. It is nice walking and looking for little fish, crab, etc. At high tide we could go for a swim with no waves, very lovely for little children. Everything was very clean and maintained. Very good cooking area, but no pots, pans, cutlery etc. At sea side there is some shadow, other sides (on grass) have no shadow at all. We paid 52 NZD for 2 adults and 2 small kids at sea side. Nice camp site to go snorkeling at Goat Island.

Ask for a waterfront site they're lovely. Very spacious sites. The facilities are nice and clean. 5 minutes good and hot shower for 50ct, that's fine. Paid NZD 42 for one night. Seems to be the regular price to pay for something good in this part of NZ. Half of the campsite seemed to be more or less permanent campervans with tents attached, but they were grouped at one site of the campground. Friendly campground.
