This is a small and friendly site with Tidy clean washrooms, which are a bit older, and amazing hot pools. The pitch however was tiny and the place crowded in Dec. The campsite is in a cul-de-sac and is very calm but there is also nothing around in walking distance. We had a good time and the kids enjoyed the pools.

Hi Sebastian
Thanks for taking the time to place your review and comments. Your site was 71.5m2 which more than comfortably fits a 7.5m camper. I think you will find most campgrounds are very full at the end of December. Our older facilities have stood the test of time and were resurfaced a couple of months ago. The campground is ideally located for guests to enjoy the serenity of the estuary. Pleased to know you enjoyed your stay

Excellent holiday park. The hotpools are well maintained and water clean. Powesites are large with room for awning and well maintain grass. We enjoy our stay and will be added to our agenda as a favorit place. A big thank you to the staff for warming welcome and helpfull advice.

Lovely place to stay, but were very disappointed with Manager asking us to turn music down at 3.30 in the afternoon, when 1 person complained and other people in the camp ground had their music on just as loud. Probably will not be back.

We are sorry Gayle but when one of our guests make a complaint we are not able to ignore it.

When we first came here we knew it would be our go to get away place. Probably one of the cleanest camps in the Country and Garry and Sue are so friendly and helpful. The pools are stunning and very clean as they empty and wash them out each night, no chlorine!! I heard Garry and Sue are retiring so I hope the new managers are just as efficient and pleasant to deal with, we will miss seeing them around. We highly recommend a stay here if youre in the area and so much cheaper than Waihi beach.
