“Camping in New Plymouth”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Facilities NEED updating. Trying to shower and dress with preschoolers was difficult. 2 showers with shared 1 bench made it a squeeze when others came into the tiny room. Painting showers dark Grey did not add to the cleanliness feel. And stating you have 2 and 3 yo may still get you a cliff edge site. Train does run very close to sites during the week. But, a wonderful view of the bay. I guess that's why they feel don't need much else.....

The location of the park was good and we had booked the ensuite cabin overlooking the water. This provided a nice outlook. The cabin had all the basic equipment but was cramped because of the bunk beds. I wouldn't like to be in there as a couple with 2 children.
We used the barbeque one night and cooked in the kitchen another night. The kitchen surfaces and floor appeared clean enough, but there were lots of small dead flies on the window cills. There was no soap, towels, scourers or indeed anything to clean the surfaces. I felt that this was a major hygiene problem. The whole place looked tired and we paid a similar price for much better accommodation on our trip.

Think we got the last plot for the night but got it we did. Clean, tidy and well looked after. Staff friendly and helpful although the info we got wasn't totally reliable! Great access to the breakwater and the coastal path. Happy to recommend.

We were originally only planning on staying for one night but loved it so much we stayed for three! We had an awesome campsite on the hill overlooking the sea and the wharf - beautiful view. The campsites are also great as they have planted hedges to separate the sites so they are more private. We also had a barbecue table on our site which was great. The bathroom facilities were typical of most campgrounds. The showers were a bit gross with mouldy shower curtains but what do you expect at a campground.

The campground is very central to town - it's only a 15 walk along the coastal walkway to town and a 10 minute walk to the aquatic centre.

Will definitely stay again for the views and location.

Room Tip: Ask for a campsite overlooking the water

Stayed in one of the self-contained units. Very comfortable. Everything clean and functional. Nice to see some modern TVs in a campground. Peak season so the camp was full-up yet it didn't feel crowded. Prime location. Only gripe is the main double bed which is due for replacement. So spongy and bouncy that one of us had to sleep in one of the other beds because of the roll-together, there are springs poking out of the side of the mattress. Staff and service are friendly and efficient. Didn't have a great deal of interaction to be honest which, I guess, is a good thing. Price is getting up there a bit at NZ$155 /night for a family of four.

Room Tip: Seaview cabins are really nice, although part of your view may get blocked by campervans.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and your feedback is welcome. If you wouldn't mind, could you forward through an email to info@beltroad.co.nz with the cabin number which you stayed so that we are able to look into the issue with the bed and get this replaced. Happy New Year and we hope to see you again in 2014.

As a campervan owner, I've stayed in several campsites in NZ. Belt Road has to have some of the best camping views of any I've been to. Situated in an elevated position above the coast, the expansive water views are a pleasure to wake up to.

The facilities are fine, and very well kept but when I took a shower, I left my dirty clothes on the floor, only for a huge puddle to develop and soak them all. Overall a very nice experience though.

Sadly I'm unlikely to visit very often in the future as we usually travel with our dog and the campsite doesn't allow them (was without pooch on this occasion).

Room Tip: If you're camping, ask for a waterfront site :)
