No separation between the tent site but not so much people so we had our privacy. Kitchen and facilities old but clean. Kitchen quite small for everybody and not “unlimited” hot shower (you have to push a button outside for only 4 minutes of hot water). Nice outside. No Free Unlimited Wifi.

I booked a kitchen cabin for 1 night. The cabin was very clean and maintained. The Park Manager Marilyn was very friendly and helpful, even to the point when around 8pm I discovered I had lost my cell phone. Marilyn never hesitated for a second, driving me back to the train station where she had picked me up from. Then,... More

- 16$ each person for tent site. - Unfriendly welcome but nice place. - Normal showers but with a 4 min-button-system so u have to change showers or take a quick one or finish with just cold water. - Nice environment sounds(normal birds and horses on the side). - A cute little river, kid playing area, clean BBQ and tables....

It's an older Park but well maintained and cabins were very clean, grounds beautifully kept, a great location and a very helpful manager who turned out very early on a Sunday morning to reset a tripped breaker (failed electric jug) and offered a late check-out as compensation for inconvenience. (We didn't take it - but thanks anyway). I see what... More

I stayed here in a kitchen cabin for the night ($65). Lovely surroundings and the cabin was clean and comfortable. The hosts were wonderful and the guy even came to check on me which was appreciated. They were even very understanding when I had an issue with my credit card. Overall, I would definately stay here again. Thanks for a... More

Very basic facilities but sufficient. Seemed very cramped for camp sites but it was Wellington Sevens weekend. Kept awake by a very noisy group of about 10 singing and shouting. They kept partying and seemed to have little regard for others. Was finally forced to ask them to keep the noise down after midnight which had limited success. Judging by... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights at this beautiful park and would recommend it with it's lovely bush and beach surroundings and well laid out sites which afford privacy, sun and shaded areas. We experienced a very negative introduction to the park however with a manager who neither welcomed us and was also rude in her demand for where we... More

The site and location are fine. However the facilities are poor and dirty. The toaster is spotless but this is because it is broken and doesnt work. The kichen and toilet block are both dirty. The water in all three showers trickles and remains cold. Nothing to add other than I would not recommend this site.

We intended to book a 70th Birthday Holiday for my father including fishing charter and tour of Kapiti. We paid $400 deposit to hold lodge, prices for other cabins kept changing and were not consistent between staff, the lodge was able to cater up to 30 people but only able to supply linen/bedding for 4 people. The manager was rude... More

We first stayed here 3 years ago when both our beautiful dogs were still with us and we stayed in the Dog Bay. We had checked the camp out several weeks before hand and had chosen a site which we booked. When our holiday was upon us we made our way to Paekakareki Camp and booked in and went to... More
