We have stayed here previously in 2020, a very clean, quiet campground.
We have had to cancel a 5 day stay due to covid and they were very quick to refund our deposit.
Very friendly accommodating staff
Thank You

A lot of long term people who will follow your footsteps from day 1 to see if you do something wrong.
The second day we were already bothered by a neigbour who basicely said they don't like travelers arround and after telling her to mind her own business I was being threatened to leave the park by an older man who worked there who didn't even asked me what happened.
There are only 4 tentsites and the rest is all moterhomes.
We felt extremely unwelcome!!
Do not go here!!

Lovely family owned camper van site, powered ones don’t get a spot with a view. Very clean and safe facilities, radio in the toilets to jam to in the shower. Cute local cats looking for cuddles too. $38 for 2 people in a powered site, great price!

About a 20 walk to The Strand where all the restaurants are in Tauranga. Really nice owners and facilities are always immaculate. Dogs welcome. Quite an urban site but backs onto the water. Few permanent residents but all elderly and friendly. Would stay again.

Very expensive, $30 for just 1 adult with a non power site. Wifi is the most expensive I had seen in NZ $10 for 200mb. Clean premises and friendly owners.

The location is a bit away from everything, unless I was missing something. Kitchen was clean but cold similar story with the showers. The lady on the desk was most helpful though and really friendly, not bad for a 1 night stop. I would probably continue on to the mountain side if I was stopping in Tauranga again.

Check-in procedure was easy, very friendly and informative. Showers take 50c for 5 mins, facilities spotless. Very quiet site on a beautiful inland water area. Key provided to activate entry barrier, no lockdown so can come and go as you please. Great site, will recommend.

Nice tidy organised campground directly at water inlet (tidal). Friendly hostess.
Although clean and modern facilities, kitchen is small for main season/size of campground.

Spotless. Hair dryers for women, close to city centre plus cheapest in the area for a powered site.
