Address:15 Beach Road, Waihi Beach., Bay of Plenty, East Cape, North Island
At the northern end of Waihi Beach is this large, immaculately-kept park, that offers a variety of interesting sites grouped into individual camping areas. The barrier arm entry ensures camp security and lots of mature trees, mainly pohutukawa, enhance the grounds. Choose from 70 powered sites, either in the main camp area at road level, or on the water_s edge across the road. A pretty stream divides the camp and you can feed the pet eels from the quaint footbridges. Plenty of smart ablutions and toilet blocks can be found throughout. Enjoy a modern central facilities block, with state-of-the-art fit-out in the caf_-style kitchen/dining area, ablutions and recreation areas. Everything has been thought of, with Sky TV lounge (huge screen!), gymnasium and sauna and a superb family room/nursery that is well-equipped with wet-day entertainment for the littlies. Even the superb laundry has had the treatment - with comfy seats and reading material provided. This attractive communal building spills out onto a landscaped dining/BBQ patio and pool area. Mountain bikes and surf boards may be hired. Aside from the nearby beach, the kids have a games room and great playground equipment, including jumping pillows, to enjoy. A bonus is underground TV cabling to most sites. Your hosts are Vicki and Ian Smith. Prices upon application.
