The campground is amazing. Is a great place to get away from it all. Facilities are good and the people that run the place we're so welcoming.
Great place to fish and go for a kayak.
Was very relaxing. Will be back for another weekend away.

Had the most relaxing time here - awesome place. Clean facilities, great atmosphere. So nice to be in a place with so few rules - loved having a fire to cook our freshly caught fish! And bellbirds to wake up to - heaven!

Beautiful place and great hosts. Mrs Smith should remove her review. The toilet facilities are run down but extremely well maintained. I was there when you complained at the office and pointed out that the cleaners were cleaning in front of you. You should have remained in you $160,000 home on wheels instead of discrediting the hard work the management team endure to make visitors stay a joyous experience. Shameful lady.

It’s like paradise! I SWEAR! The bay provides a safe closed space for our tamariki, the staff are so helpful and amazing and the facilities aren’t complicated. Honestly, 💯 will be back! Ngā mihi nui x
