We stayed here just after New Years and paid the most we've ever paid for an unpowered campsite. The campground is idyllic (during the day!) but we were not wow-ed by the beach, which might be suitable for taking the boat out but isn't great for swimming. The worst part however was that we got woken up by fighting possums... More

We stumbled across this idyllic place, were going to stay a day and stayed four, only then reluctantly leaving because of time pressures. The situation is right out of this world, I can't praise it enough. A smallish site which fronts directly onto almost the whole of a beach looking across Whangururu Harbour. Vehicles wanting to get to the next... More

I have been coming to this camp ground since I was a young child, and this year after a 8 year break I brought my children back to the camp to go camping. The family and managers of the camp are fantastic, always willing to help you out should you need it. The children loved the freedom of being able... More

It was our first time to this camping ground and we were not disappointed. Lovely relaxed management and wonderful family atmosphere. We were there over new year and it was fun and safe for all ages. Clearly the same families and groups of friends rebook year after year. There is lots of activity (boaties' camp ground) oriented around water sports,... More

Spent a night here in one of the motel units. Had a view of the sea from our unit. The staff were friendly and helpful. The unit was clean and the bed was comfortable which is always a bonus. Just a short stroll to the beach and a short walk or drive to another beach so you can take your... More

This would have to be the most amazing camping ground to take the family. The setting is absolutely picture perfect, the water is safe for the little one's & the fishing is excellent, we always came home with a feed. We utilized the on site kayaks which was an amazing experience because a pod of dolphins joined us. I was... More

I had such an amazing weekend at the whangaruru beachfront camp, the location is breath taking and Elaine the property owner was very hospitable. Over all this trip was worth me and my mates had a blast. Amazing Place Breath Taking View Great for swim and you end up seeing dolphins too :). Best Wishes Robin

We stayed here in Autumn and the cabin is still very sunny and warm with beach views! Excellent facilities both in the cabins and at the camp. There is loads of room for camper vans and tents very close to the beach. The staff were very nice and helpful. Please note they do not have eft-pos so best to bring... More
