We called in to Ruakaka Beach Holiday Park on our way back home to Auckland. We weren't planning to stay for the night, but were still keen to check out a different location for a possible future visit.

 

This is a large campsite. While there a plenty of powered sites along the water's edge, there were also sites in more sheltered locations tucked away behind trees and hills. While the camp covers a large area, it was effectively divided up into a number of small areas, so it didn't give the impression of being huge.

 

It was in the middle of winter, but there were still quite a few campers scattered around the park, including a couple that we'd only just met earlier that afternoon at the Marsden Cove marina. The facilities that we had a look at appeared to be in process of being prepared for re-painting, but were otherwise clean and perfectly functional.

 

Overall, it looked to be a good location to stay -  and a great place to bring a family of young children, who would have a ball exploring the park.
