Once again our stay was fabulous. We stayed only the one night this time and were in one of the new cabins and we were extremely impressed. I just needed an escape from the big smoke and Camp Waipu and Waipu beach supplied it. I have to admit, I didn't want to come home. Looking forward to the new, new...

We had driven by many holiday parks/caravan parks before we found this beautiful spot. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We did not have a booking as we were travelling around the north Island in a Maui and stopping when we needed to. We were told that we could go and have a look at all the powered sites...

Possibly one of the top five tourist campgrounds I have ever stayed in Australia and New Zealand. Every facility is provided and well laid out in the park. Everything is impeccably clean. Beautiful beach and restaurant within easy walking distance. Could not get much better place to stay!!

Yet another great family holiday at Camp Waipu Cove. A nice peaceful place to stay right on the beach, and just over the hill from Langs Beach. Friendly staff and great facilities. See you again soon!

I stayed 2 nights in a self-contained camper (actually it was my first 2 nights in the van) and I found Camp Waipu Cove a really great place to start! The facilities were really clean and there were plenty of them. Kitchen with multiple stove-tops, microwaves, toasters, kettles, an oven and bbqs. The ablution block was also really clean and...

Really lovely spot with a nice cafe/bar straight across the road. The playground was a huge hit with our almost 2 year old, would've appreciated being close to the playground rather than tucked around the back in the shaded cabin (number 5). Comfortable bed & large cabin.

Great campsite, friendly staff and great amenities. Went caravanning for a weekend, having previously been in summer. Typical wet spring weekend but the location is still great even if the weather was not so good. Amazing to be right beside the beach and have a lovely walk in between the showers. Will look forward to summer coming.
