Really great place for your next holiday! We stayed with friends and enjoyed facilities, atmosphere and people working there. It's close to Kai Iwi lakes which is convenient. I would recommend to everyone.

This was our first stop after picking up our van in Auckland. It was very quiet, the facilities were excellent and very clean. The kitchen had utensils, saucepans etc to use if needed. The grounds are well kept, the river goes around the site and has swimming holes. We don’t have young children now but could see how much they would enjoy it here. Very convenient for Waipoua Forest.

The camping ground was amazing, the room in the cabin was very comfortable and the the toilet facilities were 5 star. We had fun tubing down the river, and jumping off the ropes. We were provided with instructions on how to see a kiwi, went looking for one after dark, and found one!

Lovely river setting, all facilities really clean and working, very friendly staff I would thoroughly recommend this holiday park to anyway looking to stay on the Kauri Coast.
It is well positioned for most places to visit on the Kauri Coast.

We had a caravan on a powered site for 2 nights. The camp ground is spacious and very green with lovely trees and bush walk. I found the communal facilities perfectly adequate and kept clean but quite dated compared to other campsites that we stayed in Northland. There are very few toilets/showers for the number of campsites in this camping ground and the smallest bathrooms we encountered. This campground seemed like a gem for younger families as so much is provided i.e. tubing on the river, tractor rides, great playground, glowworms etc. The wifi did not extend to our site very well at all but a hotspot was available if you wanted to hang around the reception area. Amongst our family of 5, we use 3 different cell phone providers and none of us could get cell phone reception at the camp. Obviously this would be a drawcard for some. I wish we had known this beforehand as my husband is self employed and needed to be contactable. Perhaps this information should be readily available?

Hi
Thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us, and sorry you only found your experience 'average'. Our beautiful surroundings and outstanding landscaping, together with the awesome river swimming and tubing are among the many reasons people choose our Park for their summer camping break. WiFi and mobile phone services are a bit more of a challenge in our rural location, but we do the best we can. There is no fibre available nearby so we are running on a adsl connection with a commercially structured LAN spreading the available mbps around the Park. I have just walked right around the Park with my iphone switched to the Park WiFi and although there were a few spots by the river where the signal was weaker, I had a signal and could connect to the internet everywhere. That said, the Park is a lot quieter now than it was at the begining of January so that may be a factor. Certainly if connectivity is an issue on someones site - maybe a large van next door is blocking the line of site, people can always get a decent connection in the outdoor seating area by reception. To the mobile phone connection. There is no natural mobile coverage on the Park as it is in a valley, but we provide mini-repeaters that give Spark and Vodafone access within 20 metres approx. of reception. They will not accept 2degrees, Skinny, or any other minority service provider. It seems there was an issue with the Vodafone repeater which went undetected for a couple of weeks. It looked like the device was working but many people were having issues with it. I replaced the repeater yesterday and it is now working well, so I am sorry if Vodafone was one of your providers - then there was a temporary issue with coverage which is now resolved. I will look at adding a note about our IT limitations in the 'frequently asked questions' on our website, and also adding something in the accommodation descriptions - thank you for the suggestion.
Our communal facilities provide free unlimited hot showers at a good pressure. They are spotlessly clean, and last year the vanity basins were upgraded and feature beautiful swamp kauri benchtops. This winter we will be renewing the toilet cisterns and seats and replacing the shower heads as part of our continuous structured renovation and maintenance programme.

Thanks again for the review, and bringing these points forward
Kind Regards
Jane
