Enjoyed my stay here and it was perfect for what I needed.
I camped here for 3 nights with the sole purpose of being close to the surf. If you're planning to surf Manu Bay / Whale Bay etc then there is no closer campground than Solscape. Super close to all the main breaks and just a short drive from Raglan town. I liked the vibe and the views over the bay from the sun drenched front lawn are majestic.
I found the property well maintained and clean. To be sure the actual campsite for my tent wasn't the prettiest I'd ever stayed in but it did the trick for me as far as proximity to the ocean goes.
One or two less tent sites on the campground to create more room on the site would be beneficial. My tip would be to try and book tent sites number 4, 5 or 6 - which seemed to be the most private and pleasant of all.
