What a beautiful camp site with sea and river views. This place has camp sites and chalets. Far enough from Auckland but close enough if you need to go back in a hurry. Almost no mobile reception, just what you need to get a break away from the city rush and to relax in the nature. It might be a... More

I was trekking the Te Araroa trail and this was the only lodging option available. Since I was a tramper on Te Araroa I got a special discount rate of $15 a night to pitch my tent. Otherwise, it would have been $25 a night, an unheard of price for sleeping in your own tent. And rip-offs did not stop... More

My wife and I stayed in Snappers Lodge for 4 nights as part of a weeks recharging of our batteries. The Park itself does not surprise, its a popular sea side holiday park with all that entails and our view was that one or two areas could benefit from a little bit of a spruce up and a bit more...

we paid $60,- for 2 pax for an unpowered site and we keep asking our self for what. The facilities are ok but basic and the management rather unfriendly. On top of the very expensive price tag we had to pay extra for the shower. The only positive is the location. We will never visit this place again for it... More

Pakiri Beach Holiday Park is in an idyllic setting - on the estuary and a five minute walk across the sand to a lovely beach. Unfortunately our visit was marred by the worst campsite management we have experienced in over 10 years of camping holidays. We booked a 15 night stay and (as we booked quite late) we told we’d...

A lovely spot near a glorious beach. A bit of a challenge to get there, over a windy, narrow, unsealed (though not for too long) road coming from Matakana, or via a much longer route from Wellsford. We had an unpowered site for a week in early January which cost us $80 per night for 2 adults!!! I wonder how... More

We stayed in the week leading up to Christmas in a small campervan. The holiday park is great, it has a cooking area etc but take some change with you as the showers will cost 50 cents for four minutes. It is a fantastic location where you can just walk out of the camping ground and straight on to the... More

This holiday park was a perfect spot to relax for a few days out of the city. We went off season but the facilities were lovely and clean and well kept. The grounds were well maintained and the kids playground was in great condition (sometimes these can be pretty sad, dilapidated places!). The staff were super helpful and we will... More

The camp is located next to the beach and is well maintained although the facilities are pretty basic.. I agree with other reviewers that the owners are really helpful but the place is let down by its high prices that dont encourage you to stay. We were in a powered site (2 adults) and were charged $60 per night which... More

We stayed here in one of the beachfront studio units, we really enjoyed the beautiful views and the lovely walks along the beach. The staff were really friendly and were helpful with questions about the area. Highly recommended for a relaxing holiday away from city life!
