We planned to stay only 2 nights but loved it sooooooo much we stayed longer. Beautiful beach setting with immaculate ammenities. Caravan sites have great water pressure and the camp has an excellent black water dump station. Many Thanks.

It took just 1 hour 45 mins from central Auckland to reach the beautiful Camp Waipu Cove. We were greeted by the very friendly managers and directed to our cabin. The first thing that struck us was the beach and the proximity of our cabin to its sand. The second thing was the cleanliness of the cabin - impeccable! The kids disappeared playing in the playground and left the parents to relax on the sunny deck with a glass of wine. Bliss! Nothing was too hard for the staff, we were offered fishing tips, bait and even directions to their favourite spot (which yielded dividends too!) The camp ground has all the amenities and what isn't offered, is available either in the adjoining shops or in Waipu itself, 10 mins drive away. Highly enjoyable stay, we'll be back for sure but with more friends next time!

Room Tip: Any cabin is going to be no less than 50m from the sand!

Excellent clean large cabins near the beach and playground. Beautiful spot to take the family. Only 1.5 hours from Auckland, it was the perfect getaway.
When we stayed the camp was under new management who were very friendly and accommodating to our needs.

This is located on one of the best beaches I've seen in NZ, it's just beautiful. The cabin we stayed in was only meters from the beach, clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend. Husband enjoyed fishing off the rocks.
