lovely location, good culture among guests, we camped and couldn't get a stove to actually cook anything. They just didn't have enough grunt. The power plugs above the sinks and above the table in one kitchen didn't work so you had people lining up out the door to use the one plug that did work! no kettles provided at all...

We camped here. Very informal set-up but facilities were good, with a nice hot shower. There's a pizza oven which would be interesting to try out. It was really pleasant to sit by the river on a long summer's evening.

We spent a night here last week while travelling around the Thames area. Lovely small camp with friendly lady in camp office/store. We were lucky to get a site that overlooked the river and ocean and was also opposite the toilet block. Older style set up and shower walls were a bit rough. But more than made up for by...

Stayed for 7 nights. Nice and relaxing right on the waterfront. We were there for New Years as well. Hot water did run low and hand drier in ladies not working. Pub over the road you can get takeaways. Was nice to be so close on the sea. We did enjoy. Fine for 4 days. I thought $15.00 a night...

We really enjoyed our stay at Tapu Camp recently. A group of us spent 2 nights there - the boys went fishing and the girls spent the day exploring the surrounding Tapu area and further up the picturesque Thames coast to Coromandel Town. What a drive! The drive to Tapu from Thames is stunning too with an amazing coastline. We...

We took some international guests from the UK down to stay at Tapu Motor Camp as we’d heard it was an idyllic kiwi spot. The beaches on the Firth that far down aren’t as pretty as the beaches further north but are swimmable and the estuary is good for stand up paddle boarding. The camp ground was packed and we...

We've stayed in a lot of camping ground, but this one was revolting!! There were rats everywhere, cabins were of ill repair. Staff were friendly until we advised them how filthy our cabin was (rubbish from previous tenants, mould, dust, ants etc) & then they changed their tune. The pub staff over the road were equally as bad - the...

Toilets/showers were cleaned regularly and the staff were friendly Showers 50cents...
