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.…
