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 had a great sleep and found the kitchen and other facilities very clean. We have noticed all the Top Ten Holiday parks try to have something special... More

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

We stayed here for one night after crossing from the South Island. The site is in a very picturesque setting. The amenities are very good, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We would have liked to have stayed longer, but only had a few days in the North Island.

Loved my stay here. Facilities very clean, staff friendly and lots to do in the area. My only criticism (or suggestion) is there was a large group of rowers staying at the camp site at the same time. They were well behaved and fun to watch however it was very difficult to get in to the shared kitchen as they... More

Stayed one night here in the lead up to New Years, a really beautiful location, the staff were excellent and the amenities are really really good. Big kitchens and bathrooms, heated pool, jumping pillow, and an aviary! Location is beautiful right on the river, but a bit of a way to town.

I recently drove my elderly mother to Wanganui to stay with a friend for the weekend and needed to stay somewhere myself with my six year old son. I have a Top 10 membership so picked Whanganui River Holiday Park with no idea what to expect. It turned out to be a great choice! The accommodation was super clean and... More

We stayed at the camp (a group of 10) and found this to be a very friendly holiday park. Since we did not have transport the owner made a special trip to pick us up at no extra cost from Wanganui. (We had caught the bus up from Wellington) Facilities were really clean and a great communal area to meet... More
