The utilities building looks smart, as does the adjoining amenities room and fish filleting benches. The latter recognises the important part fishing plays in many people's... More

We were fortunate enough to have booked this campground. It was restful, by the beach and well equipped. It was the second of many campsites we stayed while touring New Zealand in a camper van. The kitchen was well equipped. There were clotheslines to hang our clothes. The beach is right beside the campground, but the campground itself is grassy.... More

We have stayed at Camp Waipu Cove several times now, in a cabin right on the beach, it's absolutely fabulous. Great parks for the kids, safe and good fun. Lots of space for bike riding (our youngest just learned to ride and so it was good to have a safe place for him to ride).The camp ground is clean and... More

Great family camp ground with a big range of accommodation choices. Very clean and excellent facilities. Pleasant, accommodating staff and a great location right next to the beach. The bar and cafe across the road is fantastic and well worth the visit. Will be back very soon..

The self catering cabins are clean, roomy and more like a motel room, but larger! Well equipped and spacious, with a balcony for star gazing or bird watching and parking is right out front. Having stayed in many campgrounds, our expectations were well exceeded at Camp Waipu Cove. Really friendly management team who are well equipped with local knowledge on... More

This is our third stay at Camp Waipu Cove in our motor caravan. Renovations taking place at the closest to entrance facilities so we used the other block at the North end. Absolutely spotless, clean and tidy as were the ones we previously used. Well laid out campground with pleasant efficient staff. Having travelled around N.Z. in our van the... More

We stayed for 3 nights cabin 7 which was self contained, and slept our family of 5 very comfortably, the cabin was spotless on arrival and much larger than I was expecting. Shower was fantastic.

Hi Familyx3kids Thank you for your feedback. Our self contained cabins are a very popular family option so much so we are planning on building 2 more next year in the same area of the camp so many more families can enjoy our beach location.

The self catering cabins are well equipped and clean. Much better than what we expected from a camp ground, they are much more like a very good quality motel unit but larger, better equipped and stand alone with plenty of parking. We enjoyed our stay and will return as they are great value. Thanks
