Motor homes, RV's, caravans and tents, all are welcome and well catered for at our absolute waterfront park-like Paihia campground, boasting the best direct views of the Haruru Falls, our own private salt-water beach, launching ramp and historic wharf with blue water access.

The Waitangi Lagoon setting provides our guests with all the recreational opportunities to make your stay with us complete. You can kayak in to the very mists of the falls, our own beach is perfect for swimming and makes the biggest sandpit your children could want.

We have a mixture of powered and non-powered sites.

On Waitangi Day the grounds are the setting for numerous visiting Waka and many a Haka is performed on the beach. The grounds have huge historical significance.

Located around 3 kilometres from Paihia and its restaurants, shops and night life or we have a general store and takeaways within walking distance, we can arrange any local activities for you and pick-up is at the gate for most tours and trips. Just ask; we will try hard to make your stay with us an enjoyable, memorable one.
