Joke of a campsite. No noise control, people blasting music until ridiculous hours, owner clearly pulled a fast one charging $30 a head for a late booking. Facilities good but seriously, I feel like I've wandered onto the set of trailer park boys.

Sadly very old facilities. The kitchen area is rather loveless and looks more like a prison kitchen then everything else, to be fair it does have everything that you need. Everywhere are signs what to do and what not to do. Even in the shower are signs that skating is prohibited on the campsite. The price is $18 p.P. Showers are another 50 Cents für 5 minutes. Nice is that you get a wifi pass. In my opinion the free campsite right next to this one is as good.

The worst camping ground we've been to so far. Dirty and very old facilities and they are not cleaned every day. Public toilets 100m from the camp are much better. Unfriendly staff. $18 for an unpowered site is really too much here. Really can't recommend it.

Whangamata has got a beautiful beach but please, please, stay somewhere else other than this town.
Having looked at the reviews for this and the neighbouring Settlers Motor Camp, we chose this one as the heavens had opened, it was late, and we didn't fancy driving further. I wish we had.
Horrible, horrible, horrible - says it all.
The showers, toilets and kitchen were clean however and the power pitch was large. However, for some odd reason the camping pitches are at the back of the facilities which front onto the permanent holiday homes.

at $18pp for a van site, typical price for a holiday park, perhaps even cheap for the area, but we always feel its slightly overpriced, esp since showers are not included, they are 50cents for a short 5min. still, nice location on the beach, impeccably clean facilities, 50mb free wifi, outdated but cozy tv room. we had the place to ourselves in june, not sure if we got winter rates.

This camp is conveniently located between the town center and the beach. We found the bathrooms and showers clean. 50 cents for 6 mins for a shower. Probably only 20 sites are available for tent or caravans because the rest of the camp is full of pensioners/or weekenders perm trailers with add on structures with lemon trees growing in the "yard".
