We have just returned from a 10 night Easter stay at Camp Waipu.
The campsite is large and its really important you explain to the staff the kind of campsite you are ideally looking for. We were wanting something away from the main centre and with enough room for a boat. We got that on the Northern side of the camp. This did mean that we were almost the furthest site from the toilets.
During the Easter weekend - it was extremely busy and full of families. The playground and trampoline were full. Once the weekend was over - it dramatically changed.
The shared facilities are excellent and very clean. The showers are an excellent temperature and worth the 50cents. The kitchen area is very clean. Staff are extremely responsive when the lights were not working in the ladies room.
I loved this campsite because it is so close to the beach but not on the beach. We didn't have to worry about our 3 and 6 year old children running off to the beach with out us. You have to walk over the sand dunes.
The area around Waipu is fantastic and a great place to visit. The School Fair on Easter Saturday was brilliant.
We will be back!

Room Tip: Selection of your campsite is very important. Understand your needs and speak with the staff, the ca...

While the campground was well laid out and with excellent facilities, the bunk room was extremely small and an odd setup to have, given that total strangers could be sharing the same building. The locals were very friendly and the campground was quiet at night - great block out curtains for a good sleep-in!
