A must for the Far North experience, this is where you want to be. Excellent facilities that were the cleanest I’ve ever experienced. Karikari Peninsula has much to offer and this is the place to stay.

Awesome place to stay with your friends and family. Very affordable, great bang for your buck. Highly recommend! The staff were amazing and were happy to give us some good fishing advice as we had never been here before. We caught some great fish within 5 minutes of boat ramp which is right in front of the camp ground.

My whole experience at this park was stunning. The staff are very friendly and aways call out “Hello”, “Morning” and “Have a Great Day”.

The cleanliness shows they have pride in this park and strong work ethics. The unit was warm and comfortable.
