Kai iwi Lakes camp grounds

Thought you would be interested to know that my nephew enjoyed his time at Kai Iwi.  He reckons he is coming up again.  We had gone out on the Friday so we missed the rain although it must have been very wet and windy as the shower tent had blown over and the fly on his tent was ripped along the bottom – mind you the tent is old but was still really good. 

Keep up the good work at Kai Iwi.  Maybe there will be a new toilet block to replace the two originals toilets on the hill next time we come!

We will probably see you next year for our annual weekend at Kai Iwi.  Let’s hope next summer is better than this one.

Kai iwi Lakes camp grounds

My family and I have just returned after yet again another great holiday at Kai Iwi Lakes.
I wanted to just say how wonderful our time out there has been over the years Andrew and Leanne have been over-seeing and managing the camp grounds etc.

I have been camping out there approx 10 years and have seen some poor examples of managers but Andrew and Leanne are the best. Everything from the friendly booking-in service I receive each year (even when I change my mind a few times) thru to the wonderful welcome when we arrive.

After all the physical changes out there, they are the one constant thing.  They are approachable and helpful, but most of all they make the place feel safe. Prior to Andrew and Leanne taking over we have typically avoided the New Year weekend because of previous events at the camp ground however since their management we have noticed the real "family feel" even during the New Year period.
We would like to thank the council for it's wisdom in selection of such admirable camp hosts and we look forward to seeing them later this year.
