It was our first camping trip in New Zealand and we booked the campground approx October for the peak Christmas holiday season. We arrived the day after Boxing Day and the campground was slowly getting packed.
The campground provided everything that we needed for our 5 days trip away e.g. clean shower and toilet facilities, a kitchen for washing facilities and a laundry facility. Apart from that it also has powered sites if you wanna charge up any devices. I was also impressed that the site has good internet connection to the 3G network.
It is a gated site so only those that are paid guests will come through. It also asked for your group's age range when booking to ensure that the campground is not flooded with young kids trying to party hard.
We were both very impressed with this campground and are already planning to come back next Christmas with our family.
Thank you to the host for being helpful and also organising some entertainment for the New Year Eve countdown.
Definitely recommended to anyone thinking of staying near Paihia... its not too far only 5min drive to the nearest Countdown and Caltext petrol station.More
