We stayed in a tent in the camping ground so this review is only for the camp part. Nice view of waterfall, relaxing, and good swimming. Facilities ok, but could do with a bit of a spruce up. Overall I would recommend this campground as a good place to base yourself when staying in Bay of Islands

We stayed at the falls campground for 4 1/2 days and had a great time. Andre was really helpful and accommodating. The facilities were immaculately clean, and more than adequate for our needs as as family of 2 adults and 3 kids. The free use of toasters and kettle were much appreciated! It is a very peaceful and relaxing base to explore from. The kids had a great time swimming under the waterfall and jumping off the rocks next to the falls.

Wow! We had a wonderful 5 days staying at the Falls Motel and Waterfront Campground. The campground is level with the Waitangi River and looks directly across to the Haruru Falls. Great level site for pinching a large tent. Kayaks for hire at fantastic rates, clean bathroom area with good showers. Kitchen well equipped but the bonus was two free BBQ and big picnic tables. Created a lovely relaxed environment to chat with other campers. Andre and Olga were really helpful and friendly too. Tony who supervised the campground was great too, mixed with the guests and even found time to kick the ball around with the kids... I think this another of their highlights for the trip! Not to mention the pool. Thanks so much for a wonderful summer holiday.

hello, stayed 2 nights mid December. previously booked a 6 bed unit but when we arrived we had 2 extra teenagers with us and Andre quickly sorted us an extra 3 bed unit so the older girls went in there. units well appointed with tv,tea and coffee facilities and a pint of milk which is a nice touch.
andre advised us of local shops and stuff to do.
kids went in pool several times during our stay and we also hired the kayaks and went from the private beach front out onto the river and right up to the falls which we all enjoyed as we were able to get out of the kayaks and mess about in the water,we were also able to catch up on some washing in the laundry(not in the kayaks) we enjoyed our stay thank you
