Kauri Coast TOP 10 Holiday Park is Northlands premier west coast Holiday Park and is set on two beautiful hectares of parkland surrounded by native bush with river boundaries onn two sides. This is the perfect base from which to enjoy our spectacular kauri forests - it is just 5 km to Trounson Kauri Park and 30km to the Waipoua Forest, home of the legendary Tane Mahuta - the giant of the forest. Enjoy the rugged west coast beaches at Manganui Bluff, or visit the beautiful Kai Iwi Lakes (20 minutes south) with their crystal clear waters and sandy beaches. Kauri Coast TOP 10 Holiday Park has something for everyone, from our Park Cabins offering budget accommodation to our luxury Riverside Motel Units offering all the comforts of home in an idylic setting by the river. There are also large flat powered and non powered sites for tents, motor homes and caravans. Whatever your choice you can enjoy our communal facilities which include indoor and outdoor kitchens, a guest lounge with SKY tv, laundry, toilets and showers (no tokens or coins needed). Theres lots to do here for all the family - playgrounds, trampolines, flying fox, petanque court, basketball and table tennis, swimming holes and tubing in the rivers. Theres also lots of space to enjoy a quiet picnic or fish for trout. Join our famous Guided Night Forest Walk which departs from the Park around dusk and if you are lucky you may see a Kiwi in the wild - bookings essential.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We cannot recommend this place enough! The campsite is in a beautiful location in a forested valley with (swimmable/tubable) rivers on three sides. The facilities are clean and well maintained, and there is a great range of activities to keep both kids and adults busy, even those who are water shy. This includes trampolines, a playground, flying fox, table tennis, games and more. The guided night walk is very recommended (remember to book in advance to avoid disappointment) and exciting even if you don't end up seeing a Kiwi bird - Chris will guide you safely and competently through the forest. Both him and Jane were lovely hosts in general and went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. All in all 12/10 points.

We have been coming to this motor camp for 10 years and really enjoy our yearly visit. It is in a peaceful location near native bush and a river. Kai Iwi lakes is a 20min drive and really worth the trip as the lakes are beautiful. For the beach goers there are several wild west coast beaches to choose from including Bayleys beach, Omamari and Glinks Gully. The nearest township is 20 mins drive to Dargaville. The camp shop has some select items and there is a gas station a short drive away. From this location you can go for bush walks and see the kiwis at night if you are very lucky.

We usually stay at kaiiwi lakes campground but because it was full and on a recommendation from a friend we stayed at the kaihu top ten campsite. Loved the facilities and activities for the kids (playground, feeding eels and ducks and water hole). Rubbish collection was awesome as well, removed from campsite daily. Only negative I can think of is more showers would be nice when it’s peak season but I understand the cost of these facilities would be too much. And hand towels in bathroom were taken away and not replaced. Over all we are very happy campers :)

Fantastic location. Absolutely gorgeous. The facilities are spotless, our camper park had a water hook up, there was even a full kitchen if you wanted to put in a roast and you can get coins from the office for the full laundry. Showers are lush and everything is so well thought out they even have a specific baby bath in the bathrooms. Our dogs had a great time sniffing around the river, we had a glorious rest and the manager Tracey is an absolute gem. Make sure you go eel spotlighting at night and don’t forget to look up and enjoy the stars.

I was very impressed with all the facilities on offer, the hospitality and friendliness of the staff.
The motel unit was large and clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The community kitchen and facilities were spotless and there was even an area for cleaning and storing a catch of fish. It is a large park with something for everyone.
Very close to Kauri Forests, Lakes, a River and a wonderful Kauri gift shop.

We were very impressed with this campsite having travelled around northland for 12 days and staying in many. The site was huge and accommodated our campervan and a tent for the kids with heaps of space to spare. The facilities were clean and close by. If you had younger kids the playground is amazing and well maintained. There is so much to do around the park including seeing eels and glow worms at night, a great rope swing and swimming hole and flying fox. The highlight for our teenagers was the New Years family races. Such a great way to keep everyone entertained and positivity occupied. The atmosphere was very family orientated. Our only downer was the very poor wifi and absolutely no phone coverage unless you go to the office or up the road.

Second visit to this beautiful park like campground and it won't be our last. Our dogs were welcomed and the site is so child friendly. Our girls loved the playground, the trampolines and the flying fox. If we had stayed longer, would have loved to do the bush walk, feed the eels and go on the guided evening glow worm walk. The park facilities are immaculate and well thought out. Love the use of swamp kauri in the kitchens and bathrooms. Great sheltered bbq facility. Showers are free and well designed with plenty of shelving and hooks in individual cubicles. Ten out of ten from us.

Bush, river, fish, eels, ducks, silence, trees, nature. Have it all at Kauri Coast. The most wonderful camping experience in Northland. Immaculate facilities for tents, campervans, caravans, or those wanting a bit more luxury in a variety of cabins, using the communal kitchens and bathrooms. The location is one of a kind outstanding.

Hi there, we have a small shop onsite selling basics such as bread, milk, ice cream, coffee and ice. The nearest supermarket is in Dargaville which is 30km south of here (30 minute drive). If you are travelling from the north there is a 4 square supermarket at Opononi, which is an hours drive from the Park. Kind Regards Jane
