Campsites Are For Those That Have Self-Contained Units Only!
After reading the important information below, scroll down past the site map below to see the actual sites, sizes & prices.
This RV park / campground is for quiet, nature lovers only that will leave our wilderness exactly as they found it! We feel that your neighbours shouldn't have to listen to your music as it may not be to their taste, nor should you have to listen to theirs. We want our place to be all about respect for others! This is also not suitable for whiney or cranky people or nitpickers. I'm old & life is too short to have to deal with those types. As our horses free-range here, you may find their remnants in your site. We make every effort to clean up after them, but could possibly miss some. Just let the host know if we do. Just a heads up, you may hear shots in the distance from the Fish & Game club. I've had 2 complaints about it in the last 5 years, so it's pretty serious.
If you are partiers, heavy drinkers etc., then this is not a suitable place for you.
We have invested a lot in the last few months. We have levelled & graveled most sites & roads, planted countless trees & shrubs & seeded grass. We have also added more power sites as the demand is so high.
We lost several sites in the storm as the river changed course & took them. Sites 19 & 20, 50 - 62 are gone & 1/2 of 21, 23 & 48. We have done extensive repairs & also added some new smaller riverfront sites.
CHECK-IN is 1:00 pm & CHECK-OUT is 11:00 am Early check in/out is possible @ $10.00 per hour or portion thereof (Please let us know in advance to make sure the host is back to the gate).
PORTA POTTIES: You must have your own! ***Exception made for fire evacuees only. Port-a-potties were closed after we found at least 60% of tenters were too afraid to go to them after dark so would do their business in their sites.
TENTS: We are no longer accepting tents (except fire evacuees) unless you can show upon arrival that you have your own port-a-potty. (Many have the $50. pop-up change tents off of Amazon that they use to put their port-a-potty in).
CHILDREN MUST BE SUPERVISED AT ALL TIMES! Unruly, wild children are not suitable for here as it's not fair to other campers.
DOGS: Quiet, well-behaved, NON-AGGRESSIVE dogs are welcome if they are LEASHED, you pick up after them, are with you at all times, not left out overnight and don't bark much at passers by.
FIRES: 18"H x 18"W are ok.
WOOD: There is firewood available for sale here ($8), or you are welcome to bring your own. NO CUTTING OF TREES, BRANCHES, OR DEADFALL, DO NOT REMOVE TWIGS, MOSS, OR UNDERBRUSH, NO HARVESTING OF FIREWOOD! No chainsaws. No wood with nails permitted!
ATV'S: LICENCED VEHICLES ONLY. RIDING AROUND THE CAMPGROUND IS NOT PERMITTED. IDLE IN & IDLE OUT ONLY! NO REVVING OF ENGINES!
VISITORS: We are a private farm / RV Park and do not allow visitors in on busier weekends as people have complained in the past that here was too many people around. If it's not busy in the campground & it's approved of in advance, people can fill out a waiver and buy a day pass ($10).
You are welcome to meet with people on the beach anytime however.
SITES: Site sizes vary greatly, and sizes are listed below, along with site pics, price & description. They start @ $15. Each site is outfitted with a fire pit and picnic table.
OCCUPANCY: We allow up to 3 adults per single site, extras are $10.
EXTRA VEHICLES: 1 vehicle & 1 RV are permitted per single site. Extra are $10. each.
EXTRA TENTS or RVs: on a site are $25. One picnic table shelter is fine.
LONG WEEKENDS are a minimum 3 night booking.
WATER: There is a water tap on site (not potable) and is just after the host's trailer. You will need to have a jug.
POWER: Most people only require 15 Amps, & can run A/C with that (turning off the other breakers first & after it's started, only turning the fridge breaker back on). We have several power sites, most are 15 Amp, but there are a few 30 Amp sites.
GENERATORS: If it can be heard outside your site, they can't be used. Certain inverter models run on Eco, that barely hum (& don't sound like a motor are ok). We have power sites for you if you need power. If you are in an area where there aren't others within earshot, there is more leeway. Again, it's just about respect for others, as most people don't want to hear generators.
GARBAGE: Pack it in, pack it out. We will accept sorted recyclables, (in separate bags) bottles & cans, soft plastics, hard plastics, jars & metal. If no fire ban, you are welcome to burn paper products.
NO PROJECTILES (Bows, guns of any type, spears or fireworks etc.)
PHONE SERVICE: Fido/Rodgers works here. We have just installed a cell phone signal booster in the covered picnic shelter, so if you have Telus or Bell etc., you can try there.
BIRTHDAY PARTIES: Please contact us first.
WILDLIFE: This is the wilderness, there are deer, bears, lynx' & cougars. Cougars often sit in trees, & a child without a larger person close, is a target. If you are walking in a quiet area, talk, sing or otherwise make a little bit of noise to alert any bears of your presence. They do not want to see you & will leave if given the chance.
HORSES: As this is a farm, our horses free range here. ANY INTERACTION WITH THE HORSES IS AT YOUR OWN RISK & children must be with an adult when around them! If it is a really busy weekend, we stop them from going down to the campground. They usually come down in the evenings, and as people have spoiled them, if you leave your RV door open, they may stick their head in looking for treats! They welcome neck scratches, but otherwise, people are not to be mauling or slapping them, as although they are very calm & gentle & would never intentionally hurt someone being kind to them, they could get frightened & accidentally knock someone over, accidentally step on your foot or bite your fingers if you are giving them a carrot etc. For that reason, we ask that you use a container if you wish to give them a treat. Apples need to be cut so they don't choke on them & no sugar please!
GROUP SITES: Sites 16 - 29 work well together, affording some privacy at the same time. Site 43 includes 4 units (possibly more depending on size) & connects with Site 40. Site 39 connects with 41 (both double sites). Also site 54 works well combined with 52 & 53. Sites 50A & 51A (they're right beside each other). The meadow is available for large groups. Site 1, 2 & 3 also work very well together.
GATE: Gate hours are 7:00 AM - 10:00 PM. Please let us know if there is a special circumstance.
TOURS: Sorry, we are a private, gated farm / RV Park and don't offer tours of the property unless you are booking for a large group. You would need to call me in advance to set up a time & I will arrange to meet you & take you around. We want to maintain security here, both for our animals & our campers. There are lots of pictures posted (of all the sites), as well as good descriptions and we have 80 plus online reviews.
Other Information: People causing disturbances or not otherwise following the guidelines will be warned first, but in severe instances you could be asked to leave immediately (with no refund provided).
I am often down in the campground (in decent weather) with various animals, but usually with my parrot that does many tricks, to entertain the kids (& adults).
Who We Are: We are Tamihi Meadows (a private RV Park, NOT Tamihi Creek, Tamihi East or West or Tamihi Rapids) This is a common mistake made.
For insurance purposes we require guests to sign a liability waiver upon entry to the property.
*DO NOT USE OUR ADDRESS FOR YOUR GPS AS IT WON'T BRING YOU HERE! Use the directions & map on this site.
Our beach is known as Osborn Hole (a very popular fishing spot) This picture was taken in July '21.
Reservations are by phone only and payable by e transfer. 50% refund for cancellation up to 1 week in advance - no exceptions! If not on a busy weekend, I usually don't have any problem changing the date for you.
If for any reason, we are forced to cancel, you will receive a 100% refund.
If you are a no-show by noon on the 2nd day of your reservation, your site will be forfeited without refund.
***To alleviate line-ups at the gate, we have put the liability waiver online at the bottom of the Contact/Pay page, so you can print & fill it out in advance to save time when arriving.
