“waterside views for campervans”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We stayed here one night in our campervan Feb 2013 - we were able to park right on the water's edge with a view across to the falls and down river in the other direction ... this is a fabulous location - really the most beautiful campsite we stayed in throughout our trip to North Island. (Also benefits from friendly manager, large swimming pool, licensed restaurant and it was in the lower price range which we paid for powered sites during our trip).

Room Tip: NB there are several motels and campgrounds around here - drive right down to the last campsite at t...

We recently held a two day conference here and were impressed with the facilities and the service. Jan and her team were marvellous, food was great, rooms were lovely and the conference facilties were second to none. Quiet and peaceful - Great place to do staff training!

wish I had read the reviews before booking for our trip. Booked for 3 nights and then did the overnight cruise ( which was excellent ) so only spent 2 nights at Haruru Falls resort. Jan was lovely and very helpful letting us use the resort van as I needed to go to a doctor. The cleanliness of the room leaves alot to be desired, our room had just been cleaned and as I unpacked the beside table and clock ( which didnt go ) was covered in dust. the shower was only a trickle and the room did not look like any of the pictures shown on the website. Towels were never changed for the 3 day stay. The facilities are very tired and need alot of work done. Swimming pool and scenery were awesome though,and it is 3km from Paihia from the main road turnoff - not the resort....overall very average accomodation. FYI taxi service is very limited so you do need a car if staying this far out.

Brilliant waterside location overlooking Haruru Falls. Everything needed for all the family to have a fun filled holiday. Swimming pool, barbeque area, kayaks, cafe/restaurant with great food (try the pizzas and fish and chips!). A friendly team of staff who cant do enough to make your stay a memorable one. And last but not least, lovely Olliebear, who is the resident cutest doggy!
We came here for 2 days and stayed 2 weeks!!!!!!

We have stayed at this camp at least 5 times over the last few years and we love it! The views over the river to the falls, the tranquil surroundings, the bird life ,the cultural feast of the waka rehearsals (if you're there around Waitangi Day) ,the pool, jetty,kayaks and the nearby bush walks all make for a great holiday break. We can highly recommend Haruru Falls Resort and its idyllic location. Sheryl & Ross Corkin

My family and I have stayed at the Haruru Falls Resort camping ground ever summer for the last nine years and loved ever bit of it! With the restaurant, boat ramp, pool, kitchen, bathrooms and laundry everything you need is on site. Everything about it is brilliant!
