A nice tidy Holiday Park on the banks of the Wanganui River, several km from town. Check in staff not familiar with local area and could not answer some local questions We travelled with a Car & Caravan

Having enjoyed some time in Whanganui we made our way to the campsite which was easy to find. The kitchen facilities are one of the best around, and if you were travelling with children it looked as of there was plenty for them to do. Good wide pitches, easy parking, friendly reception on arrival.

Have just been from a 2nights stay with 3 adults and 2 kids in one of their deluxe 2br motels. The motel was very spacious, with all the amenities included. The kids had a great time with their scooters around the park, playing on the trampolines and jumping pillow. Had a look at communal facilities and they were complete and... More

This is one of the best holiday parks we ever stayed. We stayed in the Park, on the ester holidays. What actually made us very happy is the way how the owners treated us (Anne and Ben).

We stayed here a couple of nights ago having booked in last minute to break up the drive from Auckland to Wellington. What a beautiful site. Right by the river, quiet and private. We stayed in a powered campsite in our campervan. The goat tethered up by the river was the highlight and made our holiday when he butted my... More

At this Top 10, there was space to breathe in the large tent camping area and we appreciated that very much. We also appreciated the very clean and functional facilities, including an excellent kitchen and an adjoining, large indoor room with tables and couches where one could read or otherwise get out of the weather. There was also outdoor seating... More

Looking for a room for three we got a great motel room, well equipped and a deck for evening relaxation. The owners are friendly and very helpful. Only drawback is the distance from town but a beautiful setting by the river.

We stayed in a standard cabin with a lovely deck, but unfortunately it poured rain the night we arrived, so we didn't get to enjoy sitting and looking out at the river.

We'd generally avoided the Top 10 sites on this trip as while good, they tend to be a little more expensive. But this site we did check into. The 'river view' plots were a little more expensive but camp well recommended...... not really sure it was worth the extra $4 myself. The kids LOVED this site. They had trikes and... More
