Lovely location but everything else was horrible. Only stay here if last resort and even then, reconsider your ability to drive to the next town.

Great spot but needs upgrading badly. Cabins are old and tired and bedding was very average.

You are anonymous for some reason, i assume you stayed in one of our self contained units, as in the cabins we ask guests to bring their own linen, beds have covers and pillows. We unashamedly describe it is an old fashion campground today and will be tomorrow, and if thats not your scene, look elsewhere, fortunately alot of out guests think its kind of quaint, as long as its clean right

Supplied Beds but not Sheets!

Cons: Provide sheets with your bedding.....?
I have never before stayed in accommodation where you are not supplied with towels OR SHEETS! Pillows check, Bedspread check, cutlery check. But seriously no where is it advised you have to supply these yourself! Absolute joke.

Really Misty, it is not uncommon for guests to supply sheets in cabins, it is reflected in the price, this is true of cabins 1 to 6, units 7 to 11 are self contained, I will review the property description with Expedia

Away from the crowds

Pros: Quiet
Location: Near to the beach although only walking access.
Basic old fashioned (1960's) style campground. Clean enough and quiet. Cabins, tent sites and powered van and motorhome sites. Read the fine print on facilities and what is supplied.

Rubbish Camp Ground in Whitianga

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Bulldozer through everything
Location: Whitianga awesome location
Arrived to be greeted by woman who had clearly been drinking. Room had leaks that required us to dry floor and put pots under to catch rain. Beds all unmade, no sheets towels or any milk tea coffee etc in room, Bathroom/shower a disgrace. As we were going out for tea we left without confronting the owners. Slept in our sleeping bags for our 1 night stay ... would not have stayed a 2nd night ... worst accomodation we have ever seen, anywhere.
