We live in Auckland and thought it would be good to experience another part of our fantastic city. We sort of wish we had stayed at home or in a hotel.
The location is great, right on the beach. Close to the shops cafes, bars and the sunday markets.
We booked a powered tent site for a large tent, which we did not get. The men that run it were very arrogant and although there were alot of free sites they had a problem with our car being slightly outside our site even though there were no markings. (our tent and small car couldn't fit onto the site)
I think this would suit travelers with their own campervans. The bathroom facilities are dated and not kept clean. with spider webs everywhere it was not a good experience.
We stayed the weekend that there was a tsunami warning and we were shocked to find out as there was absolutely no note up on the office windows or anywhere in the camp ground. we were not told when walking in from being at the markets at around the time it should be hitting. (We were told by a worried friend phoning to warn us about it)
This is total disregard for their guests safety as we were only 20 odd metres from the beach. I know the tsunami didn't come to anything but these things DO take lives and should be taken seriously or at least given us the choice to stay or go.
We spent every 2nd weekend camping at different campsites over the NZ summer and found this to be the most expensive and definitely not one we would return to.
