Perfect view, might be nice if you have it for yourself. However, we were there Easter sunday and the kitchen was occupied and the place packed. They charged us for both kids, even the infant. So it was 52 for two adults and two children. The next time I will go to a Top 10 for this money, because it's not much more but at least there is something to do for the children.

Nice Camping place on a Farm. Upon arrival the owner came up to our camper and asked if we would like to stay. We were the only ones at the site that night. The kitchen was quite big as were the bathroom and the shower. Everything seemed tidy. 18$ per person. Would stay here again.

Great place on a small NZ farm! Available are backpacker-bunk beds, stripped caravans with beds for 3/4 or tent/car sites. Fully equipped kitchen, hot shower and clean facilities, laundry available. You can buy fresh handpicked fruit&veggies from the garden, eggs and homemade bread for a good price.
Amazing view of the hills around with sheep and cows.
We loved it!!

Beautiful countryside view - though you miss out on the ocean view just around the corner. Warmly welcomed by Louise, who ensured we enjoyed our stay. Facilities a bit dated for the price you pay. Cute caravan set up, though we came in a campervan and shared the site with just one other family for one night in October. Many friendly sheep. :)

Thanks Kelsy for that. We are in the middle of up dating, repainting the facilities etc.

Very nice location and views that would rate a 10, camping facilities are very dated but clean and functional. We were here with a small self contained campervan and as such did not see the lodge facilities.
There are about 6 sheltered camping spots and 2 spaces for small campervans. Campervan spots are not quite level and I would not want to take a large camper up the gravel and steep access road.
Welcome by management was fine and clear instructions on how things worked. No external power available but cold washing machine wash can be done and owner offers a mobile charging service in the office.
Overall a nice stay and would consider returning with a camper or tent.

Thank you for this honest appraisal. The toilet and shower facilities are being upgraded. Mountain Road is a Far North District Council road and
as such we have no control of it. Six and seven metre camper vans do regularly arrive and cope with our parking area.

We enjoyed staying over in our motorhome at the Okopako Farm Campsite. We were well looked after and had a lovely secluded site looking out over the farm. A true fair dinkum kiwi farm with friendly hospitality.

I've stayed at the lodge twice now, the first with my sister just after Christmas last year and the second time just recently alone. Both times camping and both times having the most amazing experiences. Both Nils and Lois are incredibly helpful and full of knowledge about the local area. The situation of the lodge is second to none. Beautiful views of the valley right down to the sea and if you're up early enough in the mornings, you can see the mists rising from the ground up towards the hills. Magical! The facilities are always clean, there's plenty of places to hang drying laundry. The constant supply of fresh organic veggies for sale really makes you feel like you are living the 'self sufficient' way. The drive up to the lodge could be daunting for some but trust me, it's worth it. Several hillside walking tracks and incredible sunsets at the end of a long hot day make it a must... Will be returning here many times for sure.
