Waipatiki Beach Holiday Park is a must stop if you are passing through the area. The cabins are cozy and have everything you need for a comfortable stay, with fabulous views. The beach is just beautiful, there's lots of walking tracks and Napier is a short drive away. It's a peaceful spot and the campground is clean and tidy. Shane, Faye and their family are wonderful hosts.

We checked in with the owners daughter who we think was too young to be left in charge because she was unable to give us relevant information. Eg where to fill our water tank, how to get to the beach. A storm had heaped up sand so the river was backed up making it difficult to get to the beach.
The site facilities were great and very clean. The owner was extremely helpful when we had major problems with our camper van letting me use his phone to seek help. Also he helped us to temporarily repair the van so we could take it to a garage for a permanent repair. We were impressed with his attitude and skills.

At the end of a steep road but right on the beach, typical kiwi site with good basic facilities. Beach beautiful.
A small hidden paradise. Beautiful ride into the Bay. Warm welcome by the new owners who started to upgrade the campground. Warm showers and clean kitchen area. Beautiful white sandy beach. Nice lay-out of the campground and spacious powered lots with nice sea view.

We’ve stayed here in December 2017, just before the holidays starts so it wasn’t busy. Beautiful place next to the beach. Friendly staff. Nice pitches with oceanview. The showers and toilets needs renovation. It wasn’t very clean but that won’t hold us going back sometime. We travelled with a self contained camper.
Very nice place. Unfortunately it was raining the day we arrived!
Beautiful location next to beach. Spacious sites. Good, clean facilities. Amazing drive from main road to the campsite.
Let down by the scruffy and unkempt gents facilities -peeling paint and cobwebs...the ladies were spotless!! Location 10/10 and all sites have a beach view. Access to beach via a wade across river or pontoon. Sandy beach probably not safe for swimming - some big waves!! Friendly reception. Very quiet, just the sound of the waves....
Beautiful spot in a remote setting. I am not sure if the facilities had been cleaned for a very long time though.... Even I wanted to get the water-blaster out and give the bathrooms a good scrub. The BBQ's had also seen better days. The cabins looked good though, so maybe that would be the way forward as opposed to camping? Cool walks nearby around the cliffs and through the forest.
Very good nature.
Beautiful full campsite with amazing views over the beach. You can easily walk to any of the good facilities. It's a very nice stay when not busy.
Friendly and helpful staff - superb location.
It was near the beach and very quiet.
