Stayed at many camping grounds during our 3 weeks tripping around Northland. This was the worst value for money and the worst camping site. The owner was unpleasant and arrogant. Other campers remarked how rude he was when overhearing our conversation. Several campers also remarked how filthy the shower rooms were. 35 years in the job - I would say 30 years too long. Unwelcoming. Didnt appear to want you there. Would not recommend staying here. An unpleasant experience.
Would not recommend this camp ground. The owner was grumpy and arrogant, obviously not interested in making us feel welcome. Showers were filthy and the place was run down and not at all appealing. By contrast we have had great camping experiences throughout Northland. Matai Bay was amazing and Maitangi Beach camping ground also a great place to stay.
The most expensive camp with the worst ablution and kitchen facilities. We were parked on the road in campervan because the grass was damp. We were first in line so we’re told no one could leave until we did. We said we wanted to go explore in camper and come back later. Lady said well you’ll have to walk because that’s our spot. She said camp was for sale and worth millions. They have been there 35yrs and I think that’s at least 30yrs too long. Looks like they have done nothing except mow lawns all that time. Showers horrendous. Worst place we stayed.
Location perfect. Lovely helpful lady in reception. Nice parking area for motorhomes with great view. BUT the facilities look like they haven’t been cleaned since being built. It was just filthy and extremely run down.
At $45 per couple for motorhomes and caravans we expected similar facilities to other places we visited in the past week. This was the worst with either broken or no locks on shower doors, no bench in showers to put your stuff on. Water Taps beside sites do not work and were rudely told by elderly male manager that there’s a drought. Well they have had so much rain up here there has been flooding and we did not encounter this problem at any other site where water was freely available in Northland. We saw campers jammed in with only a metre between some. The ground is so wet campers are given a place to park up on the road ways rather than on the grassy sites. The nicer female manager told us they had to tow somebody out with two tractors from one of the sites. Drought my big backside! There is a POP we wish we had seen a few hundred metres south of this place.…
Had a pleasant experience when we arrived. Good value for money if you’re looking for somewhere to stop for the night and plug in. Laundry room was a god send. Close to takeaways and essential shops. Beautiful spot to wake up in, looking right at the beach.
We arrived greeted by a very unpleasant man, who ushered us into a very tight space between two campers. He rudely pointed his fingers to his eyes meaning look at me as I was driving the campervan into the space! My driving into the space was not the issue, it was how close we were having to be beside other vans, he rudely told me if I didn’t like it I could leave, I wish we had left as it got worse! $45 for dirty old toilet block where the light kept going off as it was on a sensor at the front door, so u had to keep coming out the shower to activate it again. There was no dump station or water to refill our tanks, what on earth did we pay the money for? This needs to be looked at by some body who oversees these camp grounds, we were travelling g to view the county and he and his campsite was the only one we were in that was horrendous, honestly give it a miss, I wish I had.…
Chose to stay in a cabin the park as other accommodation options not available $110 for a cabin with a fridge, sink & hotplate was not value for money Dirty bathrooms topped off our dislike for this place
Our family recently stayed at the Holiday Park. It was the best time ever for our family. The park was clean, had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. You get what u pay for so at $20 a night per person I feel I got value for my money. The owner was very friendly to us and the location suited our needs. We were there for a concert and could walk to shops,bars. Will definitely return. Heaps of hot water in the showers always, the toilets took a beating but held up. Thank u Harry and co. Will recommend to others!!
A nice site with basic facilities. Showers didn’t look very clean or appealing so we gave them a miss! Upgraded from initial tent booking to a cabin because of torrential rain - nice comfy bed with good duvet options/layers for a cold night. The female owner was friendly and gave some good suggestions for our onwards journey although her husband was quite offhand.
