We booked ahead with the campsite and the staff know exactly who were were and when we were turning up. It is located about 3km's from central Paihia next to Haruru Falls. This is a good place to stay if you have access to your own vehicle as it's far enough away and a short time to central Pahia where you can stay in a 240 min parking zone or on a side street all day for free.
There is approx 6 hot showers, a large kitchen and a communal lounge, big enough for us but I imagine on the small size peak season. Lot's of information booklets and brochures and friendly staff, lending us an air pump, I am sure I had a chat with them all at some point.
Cons: This is great value for money $15.00pp camping which is on par with some DOC's but here you get full facilities. Out of the tourist hub and nice pitch sizes.
Cons: We stayed with a big group of tourists and the grounds were a quarter full but there was queues for showers, kitchen space and the showers did not have great pressure, dribble here and there. Overall I can't complain though.More
