Went away with some friends and booked this place as was rather cheap. Was a long weekend and short notice. The manager was very helpful . The place could do with a good clean and spruce up . Kinda what you expect from a camp ground . You get what you pay for .

No way as bad as some reviews make it out to be. The cabins did have a slight mouldy smell and yes we did find and kill a cockroach, however apart from that, we did not have any other issues. This is a campground after all. Seems like people don't understand that fact. Friendly owner, even let us pick the... More

Stayed here a couple of nights at the start of our New Zealand tour, although not modern it had all we required for our stay. Others seem to have had issues with management, we had no such problems. If you want posh then this not for you, if you want a campsite in a good location give it a try.

This was a bad experience from the start. The manager has no people skills at all and it was my fault he didn't have my name even though I had been emailing him with my details to book the cabin. We did choose to upgrade our cabin to a self contained one for $110 per night. Not sure if that... More

Disgusting cabins that stink of damp- even our two boys said it was the worst place ever. We politely requested a refund of the additional charges saying our boys asthma would not cope with any damp- $40 extra for linen, $48 for 2 extra children (on top of our $140 booking fee). Owner is incredibly rude and has no people... More

Having booked three nights accommodation in a cabin for $310, I would NEVER recommend anyone stays at Whitianga Campground. The owner is rude, has no idea who he has booked in, or in what cabin they are booked. To add insult to injury, he has absolutely NO manners or idea of the meaning of "customer service". Sadly, this campground has... More

Stayed last year with pals. Hated the place. Read the bad reviews and it shows. This Grant is an old man who sounds and acts like a redneck. Roaches in the kitchen. Shower was nasty. Excuses and more excuses instead of taking responsibility and improving service and quality. Sad as New Zealand is gorgeous then you go to Whitianga and... More

I was looking for an affordable place to stay for a couple of days while attending a concert and this was ideal. I had a spacious tent site and convenient access to toilets, showers and a communal kitchen including the all important freezer for my chillybin ice packs. Great value for money. Very handy to the beach.

Stayed 6 nights over Christmas and New Year. Owners couldn't give a stuff about cramming people in and mixed families in with young party yobs. They charge way too much for the facilities. They don't allow pets but their own dog did his business outside my friends tent.
