I was greeted by a friendly smile from Chris, the park's manager. His local knowledge of the area was extremely helpful. The Holiday Park is immaculate. The grounds are impeccably maintained. It has one of the most beautiful kitchens of any holiday park I've been to in all of New Zealand. Bathrooms and showers in tip top shape. Coin operated... More

Nicely situated at the top of Doubtless Bay and just across the road from the beach. Spacious grounds with nice tropical trees and plants. The bathrooms are scrupulously clean and the kitchen and barbecue areas are beautifully appointed.

We visited here with a Grab One voucher for a chalet cabin. This was very clean and tidy and gave us a great base from which to explore the area. The camp itself is well maintained and very clean - good for camping too.

It's a Top 10 so it's got pretty good facilities, but it's quite a big site and it only has 6 showers in total. There was some queuing in the morning! There are no mirrors in the bathroom - this should be a basic feature, surely?? Kitchen is great - lots of space and plenty of cooking and washing up... More

Thank you for your review. We do have 9 showers, two of which are in our gums area. For the last three weeks we have been upgrading the men's and ladies showers and toilets and the reason there were no mirrors in the ladies bathroom is due to the supplier being late delivering the new mirrors, they are now due...

Great location and facilities will be back again. Only stayed 1 night, next time will be at least a week. Plenty for the kids to do and beach across the road. Found other awesome sandy beaches and walking tracks within a few minute drive.

“Avoid down by the stream as the mozzies are worst there. Many of the main sites also border the main road around the campsite, which makes choosing a spot safe for little ones hard.”
