We made a last minute decision to stop here on our last night in NZ after touring around Northland and we were so glad we did as it was the best campground we came across the whole time. It is right on the beach and there is a beach path that takes you right into the town (10-15mins walk). It is a really stunning view so worth the extra $2 for a beachfront spot. The bathrooms were clean and were always available, no waiting. There is also a sizable camp kitchen with big fridges and microwave/kettles/toaster etc as well as a tv/games room.
