Listed at number 3 of NZ's top 10 classic camping grounds by the NZ Herald, Wagener Holiday Park offers a quality authentic NZ family beachside camping experience. It's a peaceful waterfront camping ground on a picturesque, protected East Coast harbour near the famous 90 Mile Beach and on the way to Cape Reinga. Our cabins have fabulous harbour views and are built to catch the morning sun. The cabin complex includes a kitchen/ lounge area, picnic tables and BBQ.
Camping options include on-site caravans, 120 power sites, a large number of non-power sites plus kitchen, laundry and ablution facilities. There are secluded sites or ones with spectacular harbour views and a designated pet area.

The camp features include a hot private indoor spa pool, Wi-Fi, a gazebo and BBQ area and a children's playground. We have kayaks, bikes, body/sand boards, and golf clubs available for hire and fishing rods are available for beach or jetty fishing. There is a boat ramp and boat/car washing facility. We can arrange fishing/dive charters, horse treks and/or book an ever-popular Cape Reinga/90 Mile Beach tour. The adjacent 15km beach is popular with surfers, shellfish gatherers, and sun lovers. Swimming at the camp is generally safe.

  • When they say this camp ground is one of the top 3 "classic" sites in NZ...."classic" must mean basic and rustic!! Enjoyed our stay but thought it was really rude to have to pay to use the pool on top of our campsite charge. 3

  • Thank you for your feedback, it is good to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry you did not enjoy the "classic" feeling of our back to basics kiwi camping experience. We do offer hot water showers and basic kitchen facilities which makes it more comfortable for campers who dont want to bring all their own equipment. We try to keep our rates lower than most by charging for the pool as an extra item, rather than higher rates to cover pool costs, as not everyone wants to use the pool. Kindest regards, Camp Management

  • Nice place but not impressed with kitchen and bathroom facilities which are badly designed and not up to so many people staying there. Men toilet and bathrooms are a joke. 1

  • Thanks for taking the time to post a review Eileen but in fairness I feel I need to respond to this review which I believe is unduly harsh. I accept that the facilities are under stress during the 2 weeks of the Christmas/New Year peak but we never claim to be a 5 star camping ground. There is one of those no too far away but if you stayed there you would pay almost as much as you paid for your 3 nights at our camp for just one night's stay. Again in fairness we clearly state in our website that "there is a small communal kitchen" and "The camp kitchen is only small and basic and not designed for the peak period however it has what most people need - a fridge/freezer, kettle, toaster, microwave and two 2-burner gas hobs". We believe that the facilities are more than adequate for 50 of the 52 weeks in the year and do try to make potential clients aware that there could be overloading in the short peak period. I found your comments disappointing ... not the least because generally our reviews are very positive in fact on the independent review site rankers (www.rankers.co.nz) we are averaging 9/10 from 33 reviews. Please feel free to contact me directly at wagenerpark@xtra.co.nz for further discussion about your concerns (especially your comments about the men's toilets) which I do take seriously ... we are committed to try and ensure that everyone who stays with us has a positive experience and rely on customer feedback to make appropriate improvements where we can. Thanks again
