“You won't be disappointed!”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

Since my last visit in 2013 the already great facilities at this campsite have been enhanced. A lovely 'bure' style barbeque area has been added, and new play equipment for the children. The large swimming pool with comfortable recliners and the view of the falls and lagoon really add to the relaxed atmosphere. Volleyball, trampoline, giant chess and kayaks for hire, provide plenty to do for all ages. There is a restaurant and bar and open air terrace where you can sit with a beer and watch the sun go down.
The staff were as friendly as usual, going out of their way to make sure their guests enjoy their holiday. A lovely family place to stay!

Stayed one night thankfully. Great location, falls spectacular but room left a lot to be desired. New couch, new curtains, new picture on the wall then walk into the bathroom. Shower curtain and no shower mixer so when toilet was flushed I actually got scaled in the shower. Bathroom very old and grotty. Kitchen average with only one plug so you had to decide what you wanted to plug in. It looked like some of the other units had been done up and as they were empty at the time we were there, you have to wonder why we were put in the grottiest one of all.
Big plus were the owners who were lovely, but overall the I think the place could do with a facelift.

My family and I spent a night at Haruru Falls Resort (in a camper van) prior to the holidays starting - we had a great time and the staff were so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed it so much that on our way back down to Auckland, we stopped and spent another night there. I highly recommend this place! Hoping to go and stay in the hotel section next month!

The bedding beautiful and clean ...comfortable, plenty of hot water, run by a very friendly efficient family ..thoroughly enjoyable. Would definitely recommend this to anyone and would visit again. Wonderful views of the falls. Owners very attentive asking if clean towels required daily!

So we turned up at Bay of Island on New Years Eve, last minute trip planning. When we got to the information centre they said fully booked sorry, except this place who had a room for us. So no need to sleep in the car. A great location next to the falls and fully caters for family camping type holidays. The rooms even though recently upgraded are still pretty average, the double was two singles pulled together giving you that roll into the centre experience. It was New Year so minimum services on site so we ate in town. Would I go back again probably for camping only I think. But it was great to have a place to stay whilst there.

We stayed here on one of our first days in NZ. Unfortunately it was very wet, raining on and on.
With campervan we stayed on the waterfront and site was good. Shower & toilets work, but can have a facelift. Looks outdated and not clean. Might be our experience in wet/raining conditions, but after this campsite we experienced many others and I wouldn't rate this one as the best, but average. The staff was very friendly and helpful in making arrangements!
