I stay in Dickson Holiday Park for 10 days in a caravan. I had a nice stay. It's a peaceful place, great to relax. The accomodation was very good (the caravan was great) with good facilities. The kitchen, bathroom and showers are clean and the park is well maintained. There is a nice swimming pool and a cosy TV room... More

We stayed here for one night. Nice place there is a Butterfly place on site you can visit as well (with a charge). One thing I didn't like about the place is that they put a 6min time limit on the water. We have stayed in 19 cities/towns in New Zealand and this is the only place with a shower... More

We agree with the last review, having stayed one night after hiking in the area. It's a run down, older place with shabby common spaces and an unheated "lounge" consisting of an old TV, broken furniture, and sheet of plywood serving as a ping pong table... For $39, I expect a little more than fraternity a house quality kitchen and... More

Hi, Sorry you weren't happy with your stay. I must point out a couple of things... WiFi provided free for one hour, but unlimited access available from provided computer. The simple fact is that longer free WiFi access was so abused that first people on denied access to others, or the whole system ground to a halt....everything still has to... More

Hi, Sorry you wern't happy, but must explain... There is free Wifi, and has been except for a couple of weeks at Xmas.... You needed only come to office for password for an hour free access with NO data cap. As far as I know, EVERY NZ Holiday Park charges extra for laundry machines, and many charge $4/machine. Ours are... More

Turned up to this site purely and simply because it advertised wifi and I had an important date with my granddaughter, and lo and behold, no wifi, apparently it hadn't worked since before Xmas, but, to give the guy his fair dues, he allowed me 10 minutes hopping on his own personal pc, so I did get to say hello!...

Beautiful site, on a stream, among trees. Slightly tired buildings and some impressively old and tatty 1960s caravans, presumably privately owned and not for hire. Well worth a visit if only for the amusingly wordy rules and regs, as well as the many and various notices posted all over. These refer often to customers as idiots - driving in the... More

Location great, facilities good (didn't check out the butterfly and orchid area). Proper litte sun trap! Owner friendly. Downside - the various publications that you pick up for free all over NZ touted this site as having free wifi which it didn't. Not only that the printed up leaflets (from the camp office) stated it was broken and thus you... More
