Stumbled upon this beautiful spot, right on the creek. Quiet, great ammenitites and a super friendly host. My only regret is we didn't stay longer. The stream was refreshing and sleeping with the sound of running water and wildlife was relaxing. Definitely recommend this little treasure on the hillside 😍

Bathrooms are awesome! Clean and modern, the campsite is good too with an outdoor kitchen. Only downside is a limited amount of space for unpowered so we parked quite close together but at $10pp we have no complaints at all :)

super friendly owner. Laid back and chatted a little bit with us to get us familiar with NZ, as it was our first camping to stay. Felt super safe! Not many spots, but also very quiet, so more then enough room. Surroundings are GORGEOUS!! Great location and campground, would strongly recommend and would definitely stay again!

Just lovely! Nice forest, directly near the creek, super clean amenities with lovely details, hot water shower included, outdoor kitchen, bbq, pizza oven, benches, swimming hole. We really enjoyed our night here. And we just payed $10 per person.

We like this lovely small Park very much. The owners are extrem friendly and kind. We also like the surrounding nature, the park is next to a picturesque little stream and between tree covered mountains. So you can have a swim and also do a lot of hikes. The best thing was the pizza oven made of stone. We enjoyed it one night with delicious pizza and a warm fire. Everything of this just for 16 NZD pp. Highly recommended!

This is a small campsite, which isn't that expensive at $26 for 2 persons on an unpowered site (Nov 15). We used the Rankers App and according to the reviews this would be the best campsite during our 4 weeks travel around NZ. It was our last campsite as well, so the best for last. Unfortunately it was a bit of a disappointment, maybe also due to the weather we couldn't fully enjoy the location, but there were only 2 showers and 2 sinks (1 men and 1 women). The kitchen was open, which is ok but there was only one spot to do the cooking or the dishes. You could use the pizza oven or BBQ as well. Although the App showed this campsite in the range between $10-20 per person it was one of the cheapest but definitely not the best that we have seen.

Looks like a nice small camping ground. We stayed here one night as the only mobile guests. Nzd 16 pp is a bit too much. Basically we paid that for some electricity and water only. They have an outdoor kitchen but at our visit it didn't have running water.

Lovely campervan park, really well laid out, many attention to details. Great showers (except the curtains I would say).

Laid back owners. They told us it's very crowded in the summer so book it.

It was perfect after the hard (but rewarding) costal drive from Coromandel.
