“A family favourite.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We have stayed here on many occasions and its great. The facilities are good and once you know the best areas to camp its a nice campsite. the wind can get quite strong so tenting on the beach front is a risk. Staying closer to the amenities is good. The sites are a good size, though could do with some extra foliage to act as a sound barrier as it can get quite noisy with all the little ones that tent with their families. The beach is close and views brilliant. The kids love playing on the beach and there is a walk along the peninsula.

Room Tip: If tenting during a windy season tent closer to the amenities for shelter.

This site is in a lovely beachside position. We paid $2pp to be right next to the beach and the sunrise was spectacular. The site charges $44 for a powered site for 2 people in a campervan.
It is a large site quite close to Auckland so I imagine it can get crowded at weekends. I was very quiet when we stayed on a Sunday night
All the facilities are clean and well maintained. Showers cost 50c.
Very enjoyable.

We went as a family and it was the best camping holiday we've had. We went mid-week so it was a bit quieter, but the place was very clean the location was superb. A great safe swimming beach and the playgrounds and reserve next door kept our family well entertained.

Camped here on beachfront last Summer. Fantastic location. But staff were shocking. Right from booking in; slow and disinterested attitude. Once we were set up the camp managers patrolled the camp like a prisoner of war camp, even though we were a quiet family of four. Apparently it's a council run site, think the council needs to address these issues of customer service.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is only an hour and a half easy drive from Auckland. It is well organised and has a great family holiday atmosphere. Right on the beach. You can park the car and stay put. Swim at any time. If you want to get out and about there are lots of atrractions close by.

Room Tip: Caravans and cabins are a great option at a reasonable price.
