We had rung 2 weeks prior to arrival to let them no this. We were given all the information which felt like it was all just chucked at... More

Small and friendly. Old fashioned but it added to the charm. Pool an added bonus. Don't go expecting luxury and you won't be disappointed. $55 dollars for a family of 4 was good value and lovely places to eat and explore in and around Thames. We will return!

This was probably the best place we stayed in our rented campervan during a three-week trip around New Zealand. It's quiet and the owner let us choose our spot. There's a creek with a swimming hole right there, and a pool. The flowering trees are gorgeous. It's about an hour and a half from Auckland so makes a great place... More

Absolutely stunning location just outside Thames, surrounded by beautiful forest. All sorts of flora and fauna to keep you interested, plus a nice bit of river to dip in on the hot days. Unlike some big 'grid-based' holiday parks, this is a lovely warren-like collection of small, secluded areas, with none too far from the facilities. Friendly staff were a... More

We were looking for a place to stay in the area and while this park looked nice and tidy, it was a bit pricey for us. As we were about to leave ( we did not use any facility or behave in respectfully in any way) the manager ( or owner, I'm not sure) came to us and started yelling... More

Hi, Obviously it is never a great thing for anyone when someone feels compelled to write a review like this. I have no idea who this reviewer is, and don't remember the specific details from last December. But, on behalf of our valued clients...over ten thousand a year, I must point out.... The increase in dishonesty encountered by accommodation providers... More

We have stayed at this location over a number of years now which is situated 3 minutes out of the main township of Thames. Annually we hire the non-powered tent sights near the Pioneers Kitchen that is an especially safe for children as it does not have a free low drive way for vehicles. The staff are always friendly and... More

bit far from Thames if you do not have a car but they are happy to borrow you bicycles. It is a very calm place with beautiful birds singing around (ofcourse, until the germans come). Helpful staff, nice walks, bit pricey but comfy stay.

We be been to visit coromandel for a week and the location of this camp is great to move around. Quiet place with all necessary facilities. A very nice 3hours walk around the place! Butterfly garden inside the park is a place to visit. The camp owner took time to advise is for good places to visit in coromandel.
