Arrived late without reservations. Found a spot for our self contained camper van. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean. We were able to self pay in the morning before the reservation desk opened.

Hosts were friendly and welcoming.
Kitchen was clean, with a couple of fridges and a few cook tops. Free bbq. Toilets are showers good.
Close walk to town and shopping centre. Close to marina and boat ramp, for people going fishing or on charters.
Overall good place to stay. We stayed in off season, so would get pretty hectic in season (just like everywhere else)

Office hours are supposed to be 8:30am to 6:00 pm
We arrived at the park at 5:55 pm and it was closed. Called the number on the app and got an automatic recoding.

Had a fantastic family holiday at this camp ground, was clean and tidy with great staff that were easy and friendly to deal with. Playground for grandkids was well used by kids and was safe. Brilliant value for money would recommend this holiday park. Camp sites fitted our large caravan easily. Thanks guys well done.

Absolutely nothing to complain. Good place to stay with kids. We were on a powered site, which was very spacious. Warm welcome, nice and clean facilities. Small playground, but everything there and quite new. Helped us out with some spare parts to fix our van.

Stayed the night as had to get up early for fishing and was really close to wharf.
Got in late and had to leave early, so left and was going to return after fishing. Received a polite note on campervan to remind us to come back and pay.
We returned and were aloud to shower and fill up water and dump waste.
Nice people and great location.

Expensive $45/night for power site, then you have to pay for showers too. Kids running wild there, you don't get a lot for paying a lot.

Hi Jessie, sorry you didnt feel our site was of value. You stayed in our Park in mid January which is right in the middle of New Zealand's school holidays and this is our peak season. The Park engages environmental sustainability practices which includes being responsible with our water and energy consumption, this ensures everyone gets a hot shower 7 minute when they want it. We look forward to seeing you again when you visit our beautiful area.
