Stayed for a couple of nights. Bleak weather in the middle of winter so difficult to feel inspired although not Top 10 Oamaru's fault. Would probably feel a lot nicer with better weather and when able to take advantage of the gardens adjoining the park. A bit light on facilities for children, just a trampoline and limited sealed path area... More

We were here for one night and had a 2 bedroom apartment. It was absolutely fine - clean and comfortable. Some people have commented on the proximity of the railway and it is indeed close but we were not disturbed by any trains. As we'd only booked for two people, the second bedroom was locked which did surprise me somewhat,... More

We stayed for one night, principally to go and see the penguins nearby, which we did successfully. The site was clean and friendly with knowledgeable staff who were able to direct us accurately to where we wanted to go. All facilities were as you would expect from a top ten site.

We had an over night stop here in our camper van was clean and tidy and the lady behind the counter was very helpful with directions and things to do. Also had a laugh with how she described some shops in town (everything open and broken shop) Would stay here again

Only stayed here one night. The lady on reception was helpful and friendly. The facilities were spotless. Had a nice spot on an unpowered site tucked in between the trees. Only downside is the train track which runs close by, we were woken up by the early morning train.

This camp remains one of the best we have experienced. The staff are friendly and approachable, with a can-do attitude. We rode out a horrible storm in this camp, four days' long. In spite of the howling winds and driving rain, we stayed dry and war, and enjoyed the facilities.

We stayed overnight in Oamaru. 4 of us over 70 we were there to see the Blue penguins. We all shared the 2 bedroom unit which was clean and tidy, nice and quiet and large enough for us all to sleep and eat. The only complaint was that after being given a very small bottle of milk for free, just... More

We stayed overnight here in Oamaru on the way to Christchurch... The lady/owner at reception was nice and friendly... The room was basic but did the job,though the bed was squeaky.... The let down was that the rm didn't include linen, so you had to pay extra for this at reception.... This hadn't happened at other top 10's we'd stayed... More

Top 10 park, short walk to all Oamaru's restaurants, shopping and the Victorian area. Tracey at the park was lovely, explaining where, what and when. Park has a lovely setting adj to the Public Gardens which are a must, so too is the blue penguin sanctuary to watch them come ashore at nightfall. The facilities are clean, not so new... More
