My husband and I stayed here recently and was pleasantly surprised how nice this camp was. We had read bad reviews but decieded to go anyway. The facilities were a little old but very well kept and very clean. The staff were very friendly and happy in their work. We met some lovely people at the camp who made us...

Location is great if you are exploring the Far North. Management friendly but unfortunately that doesn't run a campground. Poor facilities. Pool was dirty and was told oh we don't normally use it this time of year (end of summer and school holidays). We stayed in a cabin and for what you pay I would expect a lot more. The...

The location of this campsite is perfect for surf cast fishing and also to stop off on the way back down from Cape Reinga. The facilities are good but they did have an ant infestation that they didn't seem to be worried about dealing with. There were thousands in the kitchen.

we had booked a site months ago, we stayed on the site for 30 minutes before turning around and leaving, the sites were very close together made worse by the large number of cars at each site, the toilets looked rough and there were not enough for the number of people

We arrived a bit late on this campsite, heard of good reviews but we didn't have the same experience. There were a lot of families with 4 wheel drive cars and they were rather noisy. The camp kitchen was poor and the lights didn't work. The showers and toilets were very, very dirty. Kids didn't want to take a shower...

I travelled to this holiday park with my wife and two young children in late December. In my opinion, the camper park awkwardly laid out and does not take advantage of some of the nice sights bordering (the coast). The showers are pay for hot water, this seemed a bit nickel-and-dime considering the price of accommodation. The kitchen was too...

Check in was fast and friendly, sadly it was downhill from there. Basically there was not enough toilets or kitchen facilities for the number of people staying. If you had a caravan with its own toilet and kitchen its ok, otherwise forget it There was a group of campers drinking, swearing and publicly urinating (understandable I guess for the lack...

when we first arrived we got there earlier than the other campers, however we were offered a site that was on the side of a slope. there were about 3 sites like this that we could see. these should not be offered to customers. I don't know anyone who wants to camp on a slope. we were lucky enough to...

This is our third holiday at Wagener Holiday Park, fortunately we were there before New Year and got absolutely stunning weather. Stayed in the pet area as we had a dog with our group. Discovered the outdoor kitchen area had two new barbeques and a large table with shade cloth over the top (nice) 2 showers had also been installed...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Listed as number 3 of NZ’s top classic campgrounds by the NZ Herald, Wagener Holiday Park doesn’t pretend to be an expensive resort but provides many of the facilities you’d expect of one. Located on the Houhora Harbour waterfront, the camp is nestled in a sheltered spot, has great views and is next to the beautiful Historic Wagener/Subritzky homestead & park. Some basic budget cabins are available but most people have their own tent or motorhome. ... more   less
