Wagener Holiday Park, Northland

If you’re wanting to experience great NZ camping or want budget accommodation the Far North in then you’ve made a great choice …

Listed at number 3 of NZ’s top classic camping grounds by the NZ Herald, Wagener Holiday Park offers you a quality authentic NZ family beachside camping experience.

We don’t pretend to be a Northland holiday resort but our aim is to make sure you have a great Far North camping experience (and we provide a lot of the facilities resorts boast about!).

Northland Beachside Accommodation

Regardless whether you’ve got a campervan, a motorhome, a family tent, a backpackers tent, or if you’re wanting to stay in a caravan or cabin we can probably look after you. Whether you’re wanting just an overnight stop as you tour the North, or if you want to get into some of the country’s best fishing, or if you’re just looking for a ‘’get away from it all’ time in a beautiful environment we know you’ll enjoy your stay with us and no matter how long you stay we’re sure that when you leave you’ll be wishing you had more time!

Sited right on the waterfront we have powered and non-powered campervan, caravan, motorhome and tent sites, secluded or harbour view sites, a pet friendly area set aside for campers with pets, and cabins with fabulous views of the Houhora harbour entrance.

The camp has a small basic shop which carries a very limited range of basics (as well as the not so basic ice-cream for the children). There is a small communal kitchen, a coin operated laundry, and coin operated hot showers.

Camp Facilities

Last summer we opened a swimming pool. We have also recently upgraded the boat ramp adjacent to the camp and close to the boat/car wash facility. We have surfcasting rods and kayaks for hire. We also have golf clubs available … there is a local 9 hole course.

In most areas of the camp wifi internet is available. By purchasing Internet top up cards from as little as $2 for up to five users. These can be used at other campgrounds with IAC internet access.
A BBQ and pizza oven are located in our outside dining area with drop down sides for all weather use. There is a separate outside dining area with BBQ available also on our pet-friendly side of camp.
Bait, some fishing tackle and ice are available from the shop and its possible to rent some freezer space. There is a children’s playground and a trampoline available for the under 12s.

No visit to the camp would be complete without a walk through the beautiful Wagener memorial gardens. You can also view the original Wagener/Subritsky Homestead there.

We have a fully operating recycling programme and compost as much rubbish as possible. We ask campers to sort their rubbish into the recycling bins provided. When you have caught fish we ask that they are cleaned at the fish station provided, which has sink, bench, and fresh water for tidy filleting, and where all fish wastes can be composted.
The beautifully situated waterfront café adjacent to the camp is privately leased and open every weekend and from Tues-Friday during Summer months. There are two other eating places within 5kms of the campground, including the local Game Fishing Club, which has spectacular views of the Houhora Harbour and often dolphins or Orca can be sighted.
