Great location and facilities will be back again. Only stayed 1 night, next time will be at least a week. Plenty for the kids to do and beach across the road. Found other awesome sandy beaches and walking tracks within a few minute drive.

This place has everything you need, nice location, tidy unit, clean and tidy amenities (kitchen, toilets and bathrooms, fish fillet station, laundry, etc). Close to the beautiful beaches of the Karikari peninsula.

Over the last year-and-a-half we have stayed at the Whatuwhiwhi Top 10 twice; first camping and recently in a cabin with kitchen ('Robin's Nook'). The facilities of this campground are all excellent, from the communal kitchen to the toilets/showers to the fish filleting shed and boat cleaning pad. It is family friendly and is situated by a beautiful beach and... More

Very remote so worth staying for more than a couple of nights - but worthwhile being here... Beautiful location - not a huge amount to do here but that was great as it was an opportunity to relax! Stayed in a 2-bed cabin which had beautiful views and outdoor seating to enjoy a meal, weather permitting. Definitely will go back... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay and were made to feel very welcome. The site was very quiet so we had no difficulties using any of the facilities, which were very clean. We will certainly come back next year.

Our family stayed here for a week. When we booked, the lovely staff member suggested a site by the playground - an excellent idea, as our 3 kids under 5 could play all day with no concern. Some have mentioned the playground is old, but the kids loved it. Beach right on the doorstep was great! The bathrooms are old,... More

We stayed here after travelling up form Whangarei. We didn’t think it was too far out of the way and the road to the peninsula was very quiet. The lady who checked us in wasn’t particularly friendly, but the campsite was very quiet and set in lovely surroundings and less than a minutes walk to the beach and the sea.... More

Not sure why that holiday park belongs to the Top10 group. We stayed there for 3 nights, $ 42 / night for a powered RV site. We felt it was way too expensive for what you get from them. Facilities are really average. Kitchen was ok, but BBQs were broken and dirty. Missing gas knobs etc... Staff were really noise... More
