Once again the top 10 brand delivers. This is a spacious camp suitable for all travelers, clean well presented bathroom and kitchen facilities right on the waterfront. Easy walking to the town center and the ideal location for using the cycle trails. The beach is a surf beach. The port is close by and can bring some noise during the... More

HAve stayed here a number of times but never for 5 nights in a row, great place, clean rooms, lots of space to spread out and close to the beach, city shops, river walk, great family resturant acorss the road and a great base to trip north or south, very freindly and very helpful.

We found the close location to the beach and the well appointed unit a great asset to this park. Additionally, the lady on reception was a delight. The price of our unit was far cheaper than what we had paid previously. We would definitely return to this park and recommend it to other travellers.

We came down for a family occasion, I have teenagers and young children, Waikanae Holiday Park had great facilities to cater for everyone. Parents can relax, the kids had so much fun on the bouncing pillow and playgrounds, as well as been right next to the beach. The unit was very clean and tidy, the staff friendly and service was...

After a nightmare of a booking thru bookings.com. Gisborne Top Ten staff bent over backwards to accommodate 3 of us for the National Surf Champs. Everyone's help was very much appreciated. Very clean unit but the only moan I would have are the squeaky bunk beds. Would love to visit again and I would recommend to others.

I’m so sorry you had trouble with booking.com, but really glad we were able to come up with a solution so you were able to concentrate on the Surf Champs. (If you would like to contact me direct, I would be interested to know which room you staying in so I can check the bunks.) Thanks so much for taking... More

This camping ground is adjacent to the beach but fenced so there are no worries about security, though this did not seem to be an issue at this very pleasant beach. The surf lifesaving club is next to the camping ground so beach safety is good. The area was quite busy when we were there as it was a holiday... More

We decided to stay 3 nights on a powered site and enjoyed our stay so much that we extended our time for another 3 nights. We loved the time spent at the very safe beach which is so handy to camp, the comings and goings at the wharf with the big log boats, was fun to see and the bike... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. The facility block you mention is indeed in need of updating, and we certainly intend to have this sorted by the end of the year. You are correct in thinking our park is a dog-free zone, but sometimes during our quite times, we do allow the odd small dog to... More

I have recently returned from a week camping here. We stayed at a power site which was of a decent size. The facilities although a little dated were always clean and tidy - also there were was never any issues with queues as there were more than enough of everything.

We booked units as a group, as we were holding a car rally in Gisborne. My wife & I booked a two bedroom, self contained unit, which suited our purpose very well. The unit was clean & comfortable, with a good shower, microwave, and a small stove. Slept well with a good bed and no intrusive noise. While the building... More

Comfortable and spacious room for a fair price on a good distance from the beach, restaurants and town centre. Good service and information from the owners about the city! Flexible if you want to leave a bit later.
