Campervan site rows separated by hedges.
Flat and grassy ground. 48$ for a power site for 2 persons per night (beach sites more expensive). Showers 2$ extra. Laundry 4$ excluding detergent.
Facilities not new but clean.
Free WiFi offer is pre-historical; I felt reminded of 2012: 100 MB for one device valid for 30 minutes after activation.
10-15 minutes by car from Napier.

Good site, only downfall is having to pay $1 for 5 minutes of shower time! When you’ve already paid for a powered site I don’t see why you should have to pay for showers. Also only 3 for the women and it was packed!

Great powered campervan site overlooking the ocean, beautiful. the pricing in winter was ridiculous. $84 for 4 people and you have to pay $1 to shower for 5mins??? The timers on the tumble driers are set very short and you cant actually dry your clothes.

We arrived after Rotorua at Napier Kiwi Hoilidayp ark. Was the right decision. Great palce - front view to the sea - clean park and nice people.

Good and clean facilities. 10 mins drive from city center. This has been the most expensive campground we stayed so far 70$ a night for a powered site for 2 adults and 2 children age 1&4 (the price is 12$ per child which is not mentioned here) so the plus is close to beach and the minus is expensive.

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night last week in our Jucy camper van. Our site was near the bathroom and kitchen facilities and we did not have a problem with noise. This campground is in airport flight path, but it is a small regional airport and we did not have a problem with airplane noise overnight. Kitchen and bathrooms were clean. Womens bathroom has a hairdryer which was nice, although I did not need to use it. We did not use the shower facilities. Overall, a nice clean campground. No frills, but no extras needed as we had other activities planned for our time in Hawk’s Bay.

Good sized pitches separated by hedges. Facilities were adequate. Seemed to be a lot of permanent sites. Interesting encounter with a praying mantis on the tap in the shower block.

Nicely located camp site close enough to Napier for a day trip (by car). Very silent and great if you can grab one of the sites next to the beach. Showers and toilets well maintained and clean (we didn't use the kitchen though, but expect them to be as well maintained). Great café - apart from their opening hours. 4 pm seems a bit early to close (that's the reason for not scoring 10, sorry) but great coffee and snacks. Would stay there again!

This site has everything going for it, beach front sites far enough away from the road so little noise and each site separated by planting. Shop and cafe on site although cafe closes at 4.00pm. Disappointingly, the kitchen was smelly with rusty electric cooking hobs and filthy tea towels and cloths. We felt we couldn't use it. Most unlike the many and varied Kiwi sites we have used over the last three weeks.

A campsite by the sea, with great views of the Hawkes Bay and Napier, welcoming space with a fully equipped BBQ area. Hot showers limited to 5 minutes and paid $1 .... but it seems that is because of the water restrictions. Welcome, well-equipped kitchen .... Attention sandflies and insects can multiply.

pleasant site, close to road, but no noise problem. Clean well maintained facilities. Not close to Napier, but big bonus is the winery across the road (5 mins walk) which does superb food and wine (sadly only on lunchtimes and Friday evenings)

Looks like a very lovely location and we will probably visit when we are traveling pet-free. However, it is listed as pet friendly on website, and we found out they only allow very small dogs. We were quite disappointed our medium-sized family dog was not allowed, as no where on the site does it say small-sized only or we wouldn't have bothered. Perhaps that needs to be adjusted on their advertising? Cheers, SM :)

Very expensive site for the quality. We had a non powered site which had no privacy. Younger people on the beach proved to be very loud due to the nature of the openness of the lot. Bathrooms were far with only a few coin operated showers but facilities were very clean with lots of garbage and recycling disposal. 24/per person for non-powered site.
