This was our second visit. We stayed on the lawn beside the river and watched the boats and ducks go by. It was cool under the trees on very hot days. The facilities are spotlessly clean, well provisioned, airy and light. The hosts very happy to help with any information. We enjoyed our stay.

We stayed for 2 nights 29/30 Jan 2016 with a River View Powered site. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and gave lots of information on local attractions and facilities in the Wanganui Area. The location of our pitch was just perfect and the site facilities were exceptional.

Stayed for one night. Staff were great! Good for folks on a budget. Bathroom and toilets were really well maintained. Kitchen was spacious, although it would've been nice to have a rubbish bin in or near the kitchen. Room was tidy. Only downfall was that you have to pay to use the spa.

Fantastic facilities for families or individuals. Everything is here for you whether in a tent or various levels of accomodation. Staff are fantastically helpful and the whole park is kept clean and tidy with no sign of the flooding suffered mid 2015.

After canoeing down the Whanganui River for eight days you're tired, smelly, and need some R & R. Showers and toilets were routinely cleaned and well kept with plenty of hot water. The park itself is well maintained and their aviary curation makes for a unique feature for a holiday park. The staff provided a warm, friendly, accommodating atmosphere in... More

We picked this as it is in the Top 10 stable, and was a 'rest stop' on our way to Wellington. Cabin was great, right on the river banks, good decking out the front, and good clean basic cabin. Pool was great, and loved the touches like a herb garden for guests use and bird aviary. We only spent one... More

We made a terrible mistake in spending the majority of our holiday at the Wellington Top 10 holiday park, using Whanganui as our stop over on the way home to break the trip up for our children. Let's just say, I have already booked in for our next Christmas holidays and our entire holiday will be spent at Whanganui Top... More

Right on the river banks, site feels big but accommodates only a limited number of people. We were unlucky with two different school groups being in residence for a rowing event - if that is a constant occurrence I might reduce rating by 1 star as the kitchens and facilities are under stress in this situation. For instance, very limited... More
