Bit of a drive to get there over a Mountain Gravel Road. Quiet Place with great view. We were welcomed by an older and nice Lady, who helped us park our 7meter CV. 7.5$ pp. with fully selfcontainment. Clean Toilettes. Didn't use the other facilities, all in all worth the drive for one night.

Bit of a drive to get here along a gravel mountain road, but well worth the effort. Owner came out to greet us and helped guide me to reverse into a slightly narrow space. Just 15NZD for the unit as selr contained without use of any of the facilities. Consideted this a bargain. There are some magnificent views from here. c
Can not comment on facilities as we did not use them. Owner very friendly and helpful. Would recommend this site provided you are happy with a farm site and the mountain track.

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.

Great place loads of grass/shade for camping. Nice toilets/showers and by far the best kitchen view than any park in the country.. owner is a legend!

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.
