Even though it's a big campground we've got a quiet site and enjoyed reunion with nature. The facilities are good and tidy, very close to a grocery shop. Great place for surfers. Fascinating view and beautiful sunrise.

I'm so glad to hear you had such an enjoyable stay with us. Even over the busy summer months we are predominantly a family camp ground so we like to have a nice relaxed atmosphere and have guards patrolling at night to make sure everything runs smoothly and everyone is happy.

The bunk house beds are horrible to sleep on, but a very good camping site for families with young children. No parking for the bunk house which is inconvenient, camping facilities eg toilets,showers were good, sleeping in tents would be ideal, wouldn't recommended staying in the bunk house

Thank you for your positive comments on the camp ground in general. Our bunk house is our budget accommodation option and is priced accordingly. We do offer a range of cabins which are much more comfortable but unfortunately we are very busy at this time of year and they tend to get booked up months in advance. We would love...

Waipu Cove is a lovely beach, without question. The campground is exceptionally well maintained & run. It incorporates the Surf Club as well and is sitting at the prime end of a long beautiful beach.

Directly at the beach. Facilities are good and clean. Kitchen, laundry and playground for kids are available. Hot shower is only 50c. And the lovely owner helped us out with sticky tape, so we could install our Christmas deco in the van! Many thanks again!

This is a great site. We have a caravan and stayed in one of the powered sites. The facilities are clean, well cared for and the site is beautifully presented. If you want to stay somewhere within 2 hours of Auckland, this is a great place to go.
