Kauri Coast Top 10 Holiday Park is Northland's premier west coast holiday park and is set on two idyllic hectares of parkland, surrounded by native bush with river boundaries on two sides.

This is the perfect Northland accommodation base from which to enjoy our spectacular kauri forests, and all the other great sights and sounds of the magnificent Kauri Coast. We are just 5km away from Trounson Kauri Park and 30km to the Waipoua Forest, home of legendary Tane Mahuta – the giant of the forest.

Kauri Coast Top 10 Holiday Park is the ideal weekend getaway, stop-off point on your tour of Northland or as a relaxing holiday destination. The drive north from Auckland takes 2.5 hours and the town of Dargaville is only a 25 minute drive away.

Spend your Kauri Coast holiday relaxing and having fun in our piece of paradise. Tube down the river or swim in our swimming holes. Basketball, petanque and table tennis are on offer, with free hire on all sporting equipment. There is a well equiped playground for children of all ages, and a flying fox for those who like a bit of excitement. Go for a bush walk, visit the nearby Trounson Kauri Park, take a short drive to the Kai Iwi Lakes or visit the mighty Waipoua Forest.

Enjoy our fantastic covered outdoor kitchen, three BBQ areas or great indoor cooking facilities.

Listen for the sound of the kiwi - join our unique Guided Night Walk which leaves from the Park, and let us introduce you to the nighttime sights and sounds of the Northland forest. BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL.

Lovely campsite surrounded by water. Owners and staff friendly and helpful. Facilities are good and clean but due to construction costs they can’t expand them so they are busy. Very convenient for the kauri forests. Good for kids. Tubing, swimming, play park and tractor rides.

Came here in preference to the DOC site up the road. Only a little more expensive here with much better facilities.

This was a beautiful site with lovely facilities for cooking & sitting. Love how NZ camps provide tea towels, washing up liquid etc. compared to the UK. Great access to Trounson Park to see the Kauri trees. Spacious sites.

Got to be the smartest site we have been to in a month. Everything was hyper clean and tidy.
Very peaceful. We parked up beside the very pretty stream and had the whole field to ourselves. Would certainly go back. $44 for two adults unpowered.

VERY nice Holiday Park. The kitchen and bathrooms are all in great shape and are very well maintained. You can tell the owners really care about keeping customers happy. We stayed in a cabin on an unusually hot evening in April and the owners offered us a stand up fan to use, which made it so much better! We also did the nature walk which was really great! We didn't see any kiwi, but we did hear several of their mating calls. It was very informative and interesting. Highly recommend this place!

Fabulous, especially with a baby! Very clean facilities, baby sink in women's bathroom and safe infant play corner. Site is next to a river and terraced creating a spacious feeling. If you are after a powered site and if you like privacy, choose number 5!

Good place. Clean and tidy. Plenty of ground to kick a ball (in winter), trampoline, flying fox and river.....great for the kids. A little sterile for us. It has good kitchen and laundry plus BBQ and gas stove outside. But the guided night walk was great full of information, even if we didn't see a kiwi it was still great.

The site is well maintained and has excellent facilities - but is also quite expensive ($48NZD for 2 people at a powered site). The Trounson Forest is 4 km away for a nice walk between mighty Kauris, and there should be kiwi birds as well at night.

Modern and clean kitchen and sanitary building. Nice setting at a small river. The campground is built in terraces so that it seems smaller than it is.
