We really enjoyed our stay at this family run campground. We arrived after reception closing hours without pre-booking. The staff happily reopened reception to help us, and were helpful suggesting walks and activities to do. The campground itself is in a prime beachfront location, has comfortable lounge/TV areas and all facilities were clean and well maintained. I imagine it gets pretty busy in the summer, but not during our winter trip. We will be recommeding to any friends that visit the area!

Super friendly staff and the facilities are fantastic. Easy access to the beach and great for fishers! Reasonable sized tent sites. And there are spas, plenty of toilets, and showers on-site. Will 100% go back!

Excellent! I stayed there for 1 night and cost $26 for a site (non powered)- which was a little expensive but you have access to kitchen, TV room and right on the beach. 50 cent showers which was very good! would stay there again, more of a family campsite though.

When we were there it was really empty, so nice and quiet. Buildings are quite big so there is a lot of room for a lot of people. Nice cooking facilities and the (50 cent) showers are awesome.

We spent a relaxed and calm week at Bowentown. The helpful and friendly people at the camp gave us a feeling of being "at home". They have enough toilets and showers, always very clean. A roomy, clean kitchen and a nice barbecue. We felt very comfortable. It is an outstanding place to be. Thank you very much for your hospitality.

We had a great holiday there and will certainly be back.

The staff were really friendly and the facilities were always clean.

This was a great environment to be able to kick back and have a really relaxing time

Bowentown beach holiday park. Better location than Ohope as you have Anzac Bay on the other side and best of all, a lovely beach to the East of Anzac Bay that has 170+ steps to get down to, but worth every second. The site itself also has access to the Ocean beach. Pretty good facilities and good customer service

Nice campground, great location.
But turn on a few lights at night time, not las vegas style but just a few so you can see something if you looking for toilet blocks.

At the far end of Waihi Beach, you can hear the surf at night. White sandy beaches and blue water.
