I am surprised by the good reviews. Definitely the least favorite place we stayed on our 3 week holiday in a campervan. It seemed more like a trailer park than a holiday park. There appeared to be permanent residents in older mobile homes. We were in a campervan and were sandwiched in between motel-type units and more permanent residences. We were so close to the motel units that the smoke from the smokers on their porches came into our van. Showers/bath were basic and didn’t appear clean. To take a shower you had to get everything ready then step out into the general bathroom area to put 50cents into the slot machine for a shower. Owner was nice and friendly but the folks in the motel units were bragging about how they beat the immigration/isolation system. Bad vibes.

Fabulous camp, fabulous hosts (nothing is a problem), very clean facilities. We had a great time, and extended our stay due to Rebecca & Peters hospitality. Would highly recommend a stay at this camp.

The motor camp is next to a busy road. Many cars driving down 100km/hr starting at 3am. The camp itself is quite ugly. Facilities are good though. 16$pp nonpowered. Hot shower, full equipped kitchen, 500mb free wifi

Unpowered site 32 dollar for two people. The only spot (and definitely
the best!) where we stayed more than one night on our trip trough NZ. Sweet owner and friendly staff. Cleaned regularly and showers (6min for only 50cents). Laundry and drying possible.
