Don't go there! A very creepy and untidy place! The kitchen looks totally disgusting. Free wifi though...

We had a truly magical time here, with plenty of space for our large group and our dogs. The hosts were very helpful and friendly. The campground is a beautiful, well laid out area and the facilities were always extremely clean. We have decided to make this our new family camping spot, couldn't recommend highly enough.
We found this camping ground to be both dirty and unfriendly.The owners didn't introduce themselves . We had to seek them out in the morning and found they weren't very interested in holding a conversation with us.Still don't know their names, We intoduced ourselves but still no names. The facilities were filthy the mirror you couldn't hardly see through and the toilets were very grubby. We have stayed in many camp grounds and never found any of them in this state. The microwave hadn't been cleaned for quite some time and the dish cloth only fit for the bin,Its an absolute shame as the spot itself is awesome and we could see some work has been done but cleanliness in these camp grounds should be top priority. The only time we saw the owner smile was when we handed them the money for the nights stay. So come on get your act together as there is alternatives at the point and the other camp gound/lodge which we will be using in the future. The 2 grading is only for the location.
We stayed here for 1 night on a powered site. $15pp.
+ Very friendly owner guy,
+ Toilets and showers very clean and tidy.
- Showers cost $2 for 6 minutes,
- Only 1 sink in kitchen and got feeling was a family home I'd intruded in.
Very pleasant site. Friendly owners. Good, cosy kitchen area. Clean toilets. 4 minute $1 showers. $20 for a powered site.
The campsite is an open grassy area which was very water-logged when we were there - this caused a problem when trying to leave. we got stuck in the mud! But quick as a flash the owner (still in her dressing gown) came out to help push, as well as another female camper. A great example of helpful, dont-mind-getting-their-hands-dirty kiwi women! We were very impressed!
For $20 a night for two, this campground is a very pleasant stay.
Excellent spot - river and beach close by.
