Great site, $32 for couple. Coin laundry, equiped kitchen, bathrooms and common area for backpackers. Includes free Pool table, TV.
Campervans (NOT motorhomes) have 10 powered sites, majority of which are on flat gravel roadside parks, AND separate little kitchen, bathroom. Plenty off bugs, bush none-the-less. Empty carpark at bottom away from amenities.
For those easily confused:
Go up through gate (closes after dark) to office, camper spots are further drive up the hill along with kitchenette. Exit is past parking lot. The whole "Lava lounge" is a separate building, I didn't read the map clearly.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 75 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Beautiful setting in the forest. Kitchen was small but clean and well stocked. Bathrooms toilet/shower combo, fine. The major drawback was how steeply slanted the parking spots were - making for an uncomfortable sleep. Took a surfing class in the morning from the school there, which was very fun!
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Very steep entrance in native bush. Clearly the emphasis is on backpackers/cabins. Camper vans an afterthought. Pitches little more than small laybys with extremely difficult access. One van on its side as we entered. 15 NZD per person. Decided not to stay.
Sleeping in the jungle combined with surf lessons, great staff, great camper sites.

Have some sites for campervans as well with a nice surf school and just a short walk to the nice coast.
