Stayed here are peak of December camping. Best campground we’ve been to so far (and the flashiest too). Newly renovated kitchen facilities at the A Block. Industrial grade freezers and fridge and Weber BBQs.
Warning though, free ranging kids on bikes and scooters (without helmets) abound.

Ohope Beach TOP 10 Holiday Park responds:

Thanks Christine, appreciate your kind words about our Holiday Park. We do reinvest heavily into the park every year, hence the quality of the facility blocks. Yes, kids on bikes are out there. However, for some it's the only chance of riding bikes they get in a year. We want kids to be active and off their devices. Our job as well as fellow campers is to help educate kids about responsible riding i.e. wearing helmets, stick to the speed limits (walking pace) etc.. with these free ranging children around hopefully we can all keep them safe.

This is an awesome family holiday park! The facilities where amazing (although the shower timer exposed to the outside world was a huge let down). The location is beautiful and the park is very very well run. We stayed in the busiest time of the year and it was great to see security guard regularly wandering the camp keeping things in order. The holiday program for kids was amazing and varied and the open air movies great fun. Would definitely come back in years to come with my family.

Nice place, friendly staff. Toilet and showers (time limit 5 minutes) are clean. We had a cabin, basic but had everything you need to sleep and eat. Beautifully located at the beach.
Kitchen: has everything you need and shared fridge and bbq available (didn't use it, but looked spot on).
Wifi: 100mb free wifi per day.
Laundry: both wash and drying are 2 x $2
At this time of the year it was really quiet (nice), but at peak season I think it will be pretty busy here.

After 3 weeks touring North Island this is the only site that we came back to for a second visit. The site is clean and the staff are very helpful. The pitches are metres from the sea and the view from the beach is second to none. There is a wee restaurant (Fishermans Wharf) about 15 minutes walk from the site and that is well worth a visit for an evening meal. We love this site.

If I could submit a 0, I would! Purchased a 2 night stay in a powered or non powered camping site from Grab one worth 68.00. Due to sickness with children could not make it. Rang and asked if the vouchers worth could be redeemed, not the deal itself as time had run out, Was told that due to high season change in rates I could not. Offered to pay high season rates if the money I had already spent be used in conjunction with a two day stay. Again 'no'. Most ETHICAL businesses that use Grab One still acknowledge the vouchers worth even if the deal has run out. You simply pay the balance, a form of credit you could say. I did not seek a refund only to use what I had already spent at the establishment and whatever the set rate was. The may just be within their legal rights to do this, but ethically I think it stinks. And so do my kids who were looking forward to going:( Thanks for nothing!

The Sand & Surf park also run by Ohope Beach Holiday Park also has site flooding issues that need to be addressed. After the heavy downpours and high winds our site flooded ankle deep in water wetting everything. With two girls under 4 we were forced to take refuge in our vehicles till the storm subsided. Everything got completely soaked. No one from management showed any concern or came to our assistance when we contacted reception staff. This site and several others regularly flood and are not suitable for tenting, we later discover has had a caravan on the site for last 7 years. When we advised management about the flooded site, their response was basically weather event out of out control its in the terms and conditions and asked when we would be off the site. Overall we found the park overcrowded, the people to be very clique’. The showers we tried all only ran cold water, even when the timer was wound to hot setting, it appears many of the showers hot water timers are broken, the showers also poorly drained result in water right the door as such get changed with wet feet. The kitchen area was small and cramped. The toilets were OK but only one hot air hand drier for about 8-12 cubicles and were dirty the hand cleaner was just a foam cleaner dispenser not real soap. Overall a poor experience will not be recommending to others or a return visit. We complained to management and basically received a response that suggested it was all our fault and that we were ill prepared for camping... If your planning on tenting there, do your homework on the site they sell you and check it doesn't flood in heavy rain.
