Excellent location so close to beach, restaurant and dairy. Facilities are great, they had everything you might need. both kitchen and bathroom facilities were very clean. Good sized play areas for kids too so everyone has a great time. That was our second time there and we will definitely be back!! :-)

Perfect distance for 1st overnight stay when driving from Auckland to Northlands. Clean camp and ideal for families and direct access to magnificent beach over sand dune. Waves are breaking closer to the shore due to storms last winter meaning safest swimming is to the south side of the bay.

We are a family with 2 young kids and had a great time at Camp Waipu Cove. The campground was very clean, the facilities were top notch and the surf was a lot of fun to play in. We are already planning our next visit.

We have now been coming to Waipu for the last 3 years as our family camping holiday. We always have a relaxing time away, amenities are always clean and tidy. The staff are great to deal with, they leave you to your own holiday but are always there to help. We love it here and are always excited to arrive... More

We had a week and took up granddaughters. The camp was busy but still had privacy and everything was so nice and clean. just a step over to the beach with lifeguards on patrol so great for the children. Couldn't fault and staff were very friendly and helpful.

This campsite is huge yet great. It is quiet and friendly. The location is superb as we were only 30 seconds walk from the beach. It has lots for the kids like a playground and tramps. It was very busy when we were there, so book ahead. I would recommend asking for a site around the edge of the camp... More

Camp Waipu Cove keeps getting better. Facilities, layout, sites, staff, service, and atmosphere are all outstanding. Clean, friendly, relaxed, and peaceful - and all within 100 m from the beach. Pretty close to perfect.
