Our Holiday Park Guidelines are to ensure all Guests have an enjoyable holiday experience. The guidelines are a balance between having a good time, respecting others and getting a good night’s sleep.
Barrier Arm: This is not to be played with. Each vehicle requires a swipe card to enter – ask at the Office if you require an extra card. Do not use your card to let another vehicle in or out as this will de-activate your card. Always swipe on the driver’s side. Your card will de-activate on the day of your departure.
BBQs: there are two gas BBQs for Guests’ use near the park kitchen. Please clean up after use. You are welcome to bring your own gas BBQ. Open fires are not permitted.
Beach Swimming: Adhere to the Life Guards when on duty and the beach signs. Swimming is safer in front of the Life Saving Club.
Behaviour + Conduct: Quietness between 10.30pm and 7am. New Year’s Eve is 1am (the only exception). Reasonable behaviour and dress is required. Smoking is recommended off the park grounds. Liquor to be consumed on own site or in accommodation units. Excessive drinking and parties are forbidden. Illegal drugs will not be tolerated – Police will be called. Payment of a $50 per person behaviour bond may be required. Consideration must be shown at all times to other guests. Breach of these rules will result in you being required to leave the park immediately without refund.
Bookings: All bookings must be made by an adult, 20 years or over, who will be present and responsible for the conduct of all Guests at all times.
Campsite Power Points for Caravans / Campervans: All vans must have current WOFs, be RCD compliant and comply with LPG Standard (NZS 5428:1996). All self-contained campervans and caravans must have their own wastewater container. All waste must be emptied in dump stations – there is a dump station adjacent to the holiday park on Beach Road and in Aytoun Street (last road on left heading south out of Opunake).
Check-Out: is 10am. Please return your swipe card to the Office or through the hole in the window. Replacement cards cost $20. Re-entry to the holiday park is not permitted after check-out.
Cleaning: The amenities are cleaned between 10.00-12.00pm each day (with extra cleans in the peak period). Please avoid using the amenities during these times to allow staff to clean thoroughly. A toilet will be made available. Please use the outside showers to wash sand off before entering showers.

Laundry Facilities: The laundry is located by the kitchen. Both the washing machines and dryers take $4.00 (2x$2.00 coins). Washing powder is 1x$2 coin in the dispenser on the wall or from the Office. Coins are available from the Office during open hours. A washing line is behind the laundry.
