Visited 6th and 7th February. Lovely site. Very near treaty grounds and ferry to Russell. Excellent showers and facilities however a hairdryer in the showers would be useful. Very helpful staff. Loved the ducks and chicks waddling across from the pond.

We were rapt when we were shown our apartment with amazing views and bush clad surroundings. Felt like we were sleeping in the tree tops! And then we found the spa in the trees where we spent the evening under the stars with an owl swooping through the trees above us! Absolute Magic. We loved it so much and were... More

Large pitches and tall trees made this amongst the best sites we stayed at. Plenty of bird life on the park and on the river. Facilities not a good as many we stayed at and the men's urinals were out of action throughout our stay. Was however cheapest pitch price of our stay. Staff helpful about local attractions, the highlight... More

Stayed in a studio apartment. Check-in was friendly and thorough, papers to sign and maps to look at, the host was also very good in explaning the layout of the property and the town, as well as giving instructions on using the apartment, including free WiFi. Apartment is huge! The sleeping area has a queen size bed, good beddings, four... More

We stayed two nights here. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Location was great allowing us to walk into Paihai and explore then catch the ferry to Russell. Also only minutes from Waitangi treaty grounds. Shower and toilets kept tidy. Place for washing dishes wax also provided so we didn't have to use our camper van water. Definitely recommend this place

My partner and I we just reflecting on holiday to New Zealand during 2014 which we spent three great weeks traveling New Zealand in a camper van and without doubt this was the best caravan park we stayed at.

This is a nice campground. Clean bathrooms and sites. The wifi is free but you have to get a voucher from the staff every time you run out of data. We stayed four nights and needed to do this four different times. Showers are $2 and there is no separate indoor kitchen facilities for campers. The only cooking area is... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our site, we appreciate it. We have owned the site for just over a year, and are aware of the demand for a full service kitchen to supplement the facilities in most campervans and our BBQ's - and plan to do that. We do mention to guests arriving that we don't currently... More

Thank you for your fabulous review. We'll go and inventory check the apartments - there certainly should be a potato masher and peeler, they must've been 'moved' and we haven't spotted they were missing. Our rates are like airline seats, they go up and down according to demand - and as you travelled in our quieter season we offer what... More
