We spent two nights camped in a tent at this park. The hosts were helpful and friendly as we got advice from them on a mechanic recommendation and they allowed us to store our surfboards while we were out.
We even mistakenly left our mobile charging in the kitchen before we headed out for the day. Upon return we found that the hosts had placed it somewhere secure (locked in a storage room) and had even kept it plugged in to charge.
The bathrooms were quite clean and the showers were nice. The kitchen and BBQ area were great. The grounds are very well kept. The layout can feel a bit cramped in some areas but the park wasn't booked up so we didn't have any issues with sharing space.
It's about 15 minutes to walk to the shopping centre and there were grocery stores up there as well as other shops. It's located in more of a residential area so it has a different feel to some other holiday parks that were in a more rural/forest setting. But Mount Maunganui is a busy busy place so space is at a premium in the area I reckon.
There is a small TV room but as we were out and about most of the time we didn't spend a lot of time using it.
Overall, if I were in the area on a budget again this would be a great choice!
