Like all Top 10 parks was very clean, tidy and well laid out with good facilities.Would not say it was expensive as it was $6 cheaper than previous Top 10 camp we stayed in and you get value for money. Small shop for basics. Great riverside view especially when the paddle steamer goes past. (Highly recommended boat trip).Small aviary and... More

Expensive but the best Top10 in NZ. We finally spend 2 nights in this Holiday Park because it was really confortable. Large tent site so even without separation between them, you have your privacy. Table near our tent site with roof and plug : excellent idea ! Bathroom and kitchen not really large but just enough for everybody, clean and... More

From start to finish we had non stop fun at this wonderful establishment! My 12 year old son was in heaven, not once did he ask for his laptop, phone or tablet which was surprising. The owners were very hospitable, nothing was a problem, the heated swimming pool is like a giant spa pool but with a slide! There are... More

Attractive site with plenty of play areas for children and motels/cabins set out well for privacy. Very friendly and helpful staff who were quick to attend to any queries and were obviously trying hard to please everyone and make their stay as pleasant as possible.

Hi Kevin. I am so sorry that you have had an unpleasant experience. Unfortunately when you booked through Expedia their system had an error and booked you into a Kitchen Cabin at our holiday park that was not available. We have been fully booked for Easter weekend for some time now. (We have raised this issue with Expedia who I... More

Lovely, well run site. It would be suitable for all ages, with well laid out plots, several play areas and wildlife to observe. We enjoyed the warm pool. Compared to many, the kitchen was good. Showers were OK and clean.

Comfortable for our overnight visit. We would have preferred a more central location to enjoy Whanganui's restaurants and fantastic art studio tour. Our visit was enhanced by the wonderful free range eggs from reception! Looks like a great place for families with children.

Hi and thanks for your review. We're so glad you enjoyed the tasty eggs our very own friendly chickens provide for us. We do have the most far ranging free range chickens I know - they have our whole park to explore - which I'm sure helps add to the taste quality of their eggs. Being that little bit out... More

This park is in a pleasant riverside location on the edge of Wanganui, a 5-10 minute drive from the city centre.There are cabins, serviced motel rooms and powered sites in a quiet and secluded park with a small onsite shop as well as the usual facilities. I stayed in one of the motel rooms (actually a cabin with separate bedroom),... More

The holiday park is situated on the Whanganui River bank and is easily accessed by car. The park has excellent facilities which were kept clean and fresh during our 3 day camping stay. Our site was large enough to easily fit our tent and car. We had not booked ahead and found the park's staff to be very helpful and... More
