“Lovely peaceful place to holiday”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

With so many RVs on the road these days, it’s great to review a great camping ground. Bay of Islands Holiday Park is an ideal stop-off point if you’re visiting Paihia and Kerikeri. The park is only a few minutes from Paihia, set in tree-studded surroundings with the Waitangi River running alongside. The park has powered and unpowered sites, cabins, motels, well equipped kitchen, excellent shower and toilet facilities, swimming pool and kids’ playground. We have stayed here several times and consider it to be the best in the BOI region. It’s also handy for touring, boating, golf and so on. The managers are knowledgeable about what’s to do, they’re very friendly and helpful and their staff keep the park spotlessly clean.

We have visited this site for many years using the camp grounds and cabins (budget cabins through to a small house). It is a spacious site by a lovely river. The amenities are clean and well maintained (laundry, cooking, playground, swimming pool).
The people working there are welcoming, give advice on local events and are clearly committed to keeping the site at its best.
It is located 7km out of Paihai and Kerikeri is a little further the other way. This is a perfect hideaway base location to explore the Bay of Islands.

We were apprehensive of staying in this holiday park at first because of its distance from the town centre. It was such a lovely spot though - very quiet and spacious with nice views of the river from the motel unit. The location was also handy for exploring this part of the Bay of Islands since it was on the way to Kerikeri and not far from Waitangi. The cottage itself was large and was more like a small house than a motel unit. It was also well equipped with full oven, cutlery etc. The kids playground was also great.
