This is one of the most beautiful Top 10 Holiday Parks in New Zealand. The grounds are impeccable cared for. It is lush, peaceful and set next to an idyllic river. They are simple lovely. We were here in off-season, so there were few campers. We could easily tell how busy the campground gets during peek season with the sites...

What an unexpected find in the middle of the Kauri Forest. So warm and friendly and although we didn't actually see any Kiwi birds on our twilight walk, the glow worms certainly made up for it. The scenery was truly beautifull and the park grounds immaculate. Perfect for camper vans, tents and there are chalets on site. Well worth the...

We had a wonderful overnight stay here in lovely peaceful surroundings. We had a two bedroomed cabin which was surprisingly spacious, very clean and comfortable.

Stayed a single night here and it is a great site, part of the Top 10 franchise that can be a bit variable but this one is super. The site is beautifully kept and the toilet/shower blocks immaculate. The kauri wood surfaces in the washrooms are a lovely added touch. The site boasts glow worms by the river and eels...

This holiday park would have to be one of the best out of the 27 we have stayed at while on holiday. The grounds are beautiful and the facilities are excellent. Would like to have stayed longer. Feeding the eels and seeing the glow worms and trout was great.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
