I see in other reviews they mention about the showers its all true, but they were very clean and modern. The location of the park is good 20min walk to town and its a enjoyable walk not hard. there is a super market across the road.

We arrived and campsite was half empty. The lady was friendly but she put us right next to a dump station. Power site $45 non power $40. So noisy right next to busy main road. No kitchen facilities. $2 for very short shower. No lights in toilets or shower and very dark. Paihia so beautiful. Don't stay here.

Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. We do have dump stations dotted about, we're not aware of them smelling but I'll check them. The lights in the facilities block are on movement sensors and the amount of light, occasionally at dusk they don't come on, I'll tweak the settings. Regards Gary - Owner

An ok site. Very clean and friendly, helpful staff. Small pitches which were close together. Two Modern spacious showers but $2 for 4 minutes made them the most expensive showers we've come across. Who showers in 4 mins? Hopeless so it ended up being $4. Also the wifi didn't work on a UK iPhone. For an NZ phone it was...

We camped and the site was nice, a bit on the small side (we have a small tent so worked well for us) and shade is not common (a few sites on the side would get some).There are not many toilets/showers so may be some waiting sometimes. Nice backdrop with native bush, and bird songs. The main road is not...

As we were spending our first nights in a campervan we didn't know what expect. The welcome was great with some helpful advice about activities. Toilets and showers were spacious and spotlessly clean. Paihia is a pleasant 15 minute walk and there is a good Countdown 2 minutes away.

Me and my wife spent three night in our campervan at the Bay of Islands Campervan park in December 2016 and it was probably the best site we stayed at throughout our whole trip. The site was lovely, clean and tidy and only a 15 minute or so walk to the wharf and centre of Paihia. There's also a Woolworths/Countdown...

Good. Minimal shade parking - otherwise everything you need. Duck pond on site - wear bug repellent. Friendly staff, very helpful. I would recommend this place. Ducks eat out of your hand. Great for all the family.

Beautiful little site, kept very clean and well attended by some wonderful staff (and equally lovely dogs). There's definitely a "quality over quantity" with regards to the bathroom and shower situation. I can understand some people's frustrations with the lack of numbers (two bathrooms and two showers) but honestly we've stayed here three days so far (and just extended our...

We camped on a powered site for eight nights. It was a great experience from the friendly response at booking time to the advice on activities which allowed us to make the most of our time in Northland. The tent site itself was awesome tucked into the orchard/bush. The facilities are really high quality and although they were under a...
