Lovely little spot to have spent the time. The host could not have been friendlier upon our arrival and with suggestions for places to see whilst in town and onwards. The cabin was set up nicely, small for a family but adequate. Did not use the kitchen but it looked huge. Bathroom was clean with numerous showers and toilets, however the showers were on a timer which made it a bit painful.

we organized to arrive early in the morning and everything was very wet and grass spoungy but that was due to the very heavy rain we were greeted with friendly smiles and nothing was too much trouble. The facilities are very clean. The only thing we commented on and probably due to the very cold days the shower needs to be pressed every few seconds and as the shower block to quite open it was extreemly cold when showering. Fine in the summer. everything else was great.

The staff are friendly and accommodating, the massive facilities are incredibly well kept and clean. Easy layout of the grounds, and an awesome playpark for the little ones makes this a must-stay for families. Waking up to native birdsong was amazing! You can start the walks around Opunake right from the campground, the adorable town is just up the hill a few minutes walk for all your groceries. We will be back!

We stayed at a powered site as a couple. We enjoyed our stay very much. We didn't use the kitchen much cause we stayed in our RV. Very nice sized kitchen. Large shower/toilet amenities. Good flowing showers even though it's on timer for about a minute but u just keep pushing the tap. Apart from the beach just across the road, the park is a very handy to lots of coastal walkways and points of interest i.e the lake, Waiaua River, etc. Close to the town. The only small gripe I have is about the dump station infront of the camp is that the tap should have attached to it a small hose just long enough to wash out the toilet cassette so that it minimises splashes to be on the safer side. Would love to return

Lovely safe family camp. Lovely to see the little ones be able to go around on their bikes and play freely and safely within the camp grounds. The camp custodians are absolutely fanatical about hygiene throughout the camp. The rubbish is cleared several times a day,. the kitchen and bathrooms seemed to have invisible maids cleaning throughout the day. A bit disappointed with some of the visitors over Christmas who were too lazy to tidy up their wrappings and rubbish, however the camp culture saw myself and other campers jump to the task. All staff were courteous, friendly and helpful. One small suggestion, a mirror on cabin walls would be lovely.

We stayed for a couple of nights in a self contained cabin, it was clean and comfortable. Great location, close to the beach and an awesome playground for our 2 kids, we couldn't keep them away from it. If you were camping, great shared facilities and very nice well kept grounds. Staff are very friendly and accommodating.

What wonderful hosts. The cabin was warm and clean the beds are comfortable sheets feel fresh. My Dad lived at the motor camp early to mid 90s as kids we loved staying with Dad at opunake motor camp lived there at one point many fond memories.. it's still as beautiful now as back then the playground has since been upgraded and the kitchen aswell.
The only thing I could mention was there is no free Wi-Fi definitely not a deal breaker. You can add WiFi.
We will definitely come back again during summer.

Highly recommended holiday park. The hosts were accommodating of a booking change made in advance. The toilet and kitchen facilities were very clean - keep up the good work in that regard! Going after the school holidays was a great idea as there was plenty of space (although the camping sites are very large by general standards anyway). Great spot for families - there is an adjacent playground and toddler pool and the beach is right across the road - close enough to hear the sea at night, far enough away to be very safe for toddlers to roam within eyesight.

We have been the only campervan on the ground cause it was raining the whole time. When we arrived the person in the office advised us the best places for our big camper. We paid 69 NZD for 2 adults and 2 kids plus extra for the WiFi. Laundry and also dryer is 4 NZD each. The showers have been ok, even the toilet.
The next morning we could not get out with our camper from the grass place. They called someone who pulled us out and we had to pay 100 NZD extra fee. What a bad experience! The owner was not at the campground and he even called me back . We would never go back and I can not recommend this campground. 2 points for the spot!

The staff are friendly. Stayed at their busiest time of year. Makes a big difference. However well equipped with 3 fridge freezers, multiple ovens. Bring your own dishwashing liquid and cloths to clean up in bathroom. I felt they did well coping with the number of people on site. We were booked for sites 30 and 31 we had been moved. Would have preferred these as less light from bathroom at night we were directly opposite bathrooms. Unfortunately some campers are inconsiderate and shut the doors noisily at night. So noise andlight were a little problem. Suspect the site we were on would normally be avoided.If it is wet recommend pioneer village in Stratford or Dawson falls as both have nice cafes. There is a nice walkway in opunake which is not that well publicised. Recommend this - very pleasant with flowers and creativity from local lions club. There is a fish and chip shop which has good writeups. We found it was quite a long wait as very popular...be aware of this if you have hungry mouths to feed! Overall a good holiday ideal for us as we had young family.

For the runners who need some space to train, there are plenty of choices. I did the short run over the fields and around the lake. Good warm up for Auckland Marathon the following Sunday.
