“Awesome Backpackers within Holiday Park”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

I traveled north for a tour to Cape Reinga. Didn't like the looks of anything in Kataia so drove to Ahipara. Stumbled upon the Holiday Park and was very pleased. Booked a regular dorm room which had one set of bunk beds and an en-suite bathroom. It was very clean and attached to the kitchen. The room was small but very comfortable. I only stayed for a night but I would definitely recommend it. The gates close at 9pm but you can get a gate key for a deposit if you are staying out later.

The campground itself is at the end of town and about 5-10 min walk to the start of ninety mile beach. The campsite is well set out and has clean facilities. Free internet and bbq's were put to use and appreciated. We stayed just for the night and set off first thing. Nice spot for a stopover and the staff were friendly.

We ended up at the Ahipara Holiday Park because there were no rooms available in Kaitaia. This place was recommended to us by a full hotel owner in Kaitaia. He even called them to make sure they had a place for us. When we got there we had an adorable little cabin waiting for us. The owners were really nice and we felt completely comfortable there. Beautifully kept grounds were quiet and we could hear the beach from our cabin. Off the beaten path but worth the drive!

Friendly attentive staff, clean, comfortable bed, excellent rates and very close to Ninety Mile Beach 5 minute walk. Thoroughly recommend staying at this hideaway in the sun at the Gateway to Ninety Mile Beach.

We planned on a one night stop over but loved the area and the camp so much we decided to stay another night and miss out somewhere else.
Nice grounds with plenty of shade. Good kitchen and bathroom facilities.
Helpfull staff and nice relaxed feel to the whole place.
I am thinking of coming back for a longer stay.
Highly reccomended!

Stayed here over Xmas 2012 in a camper. Nice, relatively private sites. Facilities are by reception near the entrance so if your site is on the other side, it could be a little walk.

Free wifi is a really nice touch, but it is limited to 100mb per person per day. Fine if you're just doing email/social media, but don't try anything heavy duty. You'll run out quickly.

Lots of kitchen utensils and cooking equipment but the kitchen size and layout is not really appropriate considering the size of the campsite and the combined YHA hostel.

No issues taking the pooch along. Beach nearby for good walks.

Don't bother getting a coffee at the dairy in Ahipara. It's the worst I've ever drunk.

We spent one night here and enjoyed it. We were in a campervan and found a nice private spot with plenty of birds around. The toilets and showers were very clean and the grounds were well maintained. It was about a 5 minute walk to the beach down some side streets.
