As a family, we have just returned from 5 nights in Northland, NZ. We stayed in Paihia in a little place called Haruru Falls. What a spot!!! Our tent was right infront of the stunning falls. The hosts were great with informaiton about the area. The kitchen and amemities are clean and adiquite. It is a small camp site but this makes it all the more lovely. We could use the pool that is up by the motel units too. We could hire canoes and go up to and (as my daughter did) under the falls. It was only 3ks to the centre of Paihia and about 15 minutes drive from the delightfull Kerikeri. We did a day trip to the top of NZ and spent a morning visiting the West Coast at the Kauri Forest. I would not recommend the road to Kaitia (very winding bends) - take the coast road. It's only about another 10ks longer but much more pleasant. I would highly recommend this spot for camping - it was really cheap too.
