An ok site. Very clean and friendly, helpful staff. Small pitches which were close together. Two Modern spacious showers but $2 for 4 minutes made them the most expensive showers we've come across. Who showers in 4 mins? Hopeless so it ended up being $4. Also the wifi didn't work on a UK iPhone. For an NZ phone it was...

We camped and the site was nice, a bit on the small side (we have a small tent so worked well for us) and shade is not common (a few sites on the side would get some).There are not many toilets/showers so may be some waiting sometimes. Nice backdrop with native bush, and bird songs. The main road is not...

Staff welcomes people by arrival. Mostly they walk to the campervan. Staff is very friendly en helps a lot. They ask what guest will do next day to give as much information as they can. We wanted to make a boattrip but not an expensive one. They helped and maded reservation. It goes very fast. There are 2 very good...

As we were spending our first nights in a campervan we didn't know what expect. The welcome was great with some helpful advice about activities. Toilets and showers were spacious and spotlessly clean. Paihia is a pleasant 15 minute walk and there is a good Countdown 2 minutes away.

Me and my wife spent three night in our campervan at the Bay of Islands Campervan park in December 2016 and it was probably the best site we stayed at throughout our whole trip. The site was lovely, clean and tidy and only a 15 minute or so walk to the wharf and centre of Paihia. There's also a Woolworths/Countdown...

Good. Minimal shade parking - otherwise everything you need. Duck pond on site - wear bug repellent. Friendly staff, very helpful. I would recommend this place. Ducks eat out of your hand. Great for all the family.

Beautiful little site, kept very clean and well attended by some wonderful staff (and equally lovely dogs). There's definitely a "quality over quantity" with regards to the bathroom and shower situation. I can understand some people's frustrations with the lack of numbers (two bathrooms and two showers) but honestly we've stayed here three days so far (and just extended our...

We camped on a powered site for eight nights. It was a great experience from the friendly response at booking time to the advice on activities which allowed us to make the most of our time in Northland. The tent site itself was awesome tucked into the orchard/bush. The facilities are really high quality and although they were under a...

This is a camp ground for RVs and camper vans only. The facilities are inadequate to be honest. We camped two nights and had to queue for toilets and showers every time! I think there are 28 pitches, with two toilets and two showers. The site wasn't full, maybe a quarter full and we struggled. Wonder what it will be...

Thank you for your review - we appreciate it. We've had a busy season so far ( as has Paihia in general), we do our best to manage the demands on our toilets and showers by advising guests as they arrive and suggest they spread the times if they can.

Thousands of fruit flies swamped our tent. It cost 20-60 dollars for a camp site depending on the day, and then u had to pay $2 to use the shower. For this we got a non specific tent site <1m from neighboring vans. The entire campground has only 2 toilets and 2 showers for all campers. There was a long...

Thank you for your review. I can see that you have chosen to visit Paihia at the height of New Year season and our prices reflect the demand - which was exceptionally busy for Paihia this year, and us. We were busier than anticipated, and we did bring in some Portable Toilets to help - we plan to increase the...
