Nice location, good basic accomodation considering the cost in the area. Not suitable for groups or weddings as per a number of other reviews. Management is very strict on noise here, which is great but perhaps over the top in some situations, it is a Holiday Park... We had some other friends who were treated like teenages, they were there... More

We were made to feel very welcome straight away. The park is clean, good facilities, and has lovely views. It is well situated to walk into Russell and catch the ferry across to Paihia. You must also visit Flagstaff Hill for spectacular views, and Long Beach, turning left out of the site. Thank you for a great stay.

A wonderfully kept campsite just on the outskirts of Russell. Excellent facilities and is the place to stay in Russell if you have a motorhome. Russell in itself is a little charm and a must -do place on anyones itinerary. Stay awhile in the town and learn a little more about New Zealand's early history, you will not be disappointed.

This town is a lovely place to go for a walk. The top 10 park was very neat and tidy. Showers are 50c for 6 min and it takes a good 2 minutes to warm up :( so not a fan of this system. Otherwise nice. Was stayed in the camper spots above facilities and found that it was nice... More

Thank you for your online review. It was great to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Russell and found our park to be neat and tidy. We were sorry to hear that you weren't a fan of the metered showers. The reason the showers are metered is because Russell doesn't have a town water supply. It is therefore necessary... More

This has to be one of the best parks in new zealand. It has amazing views over the bay from elevated sites and cabins and camp kitchen. It is so well maintained with manicured lawns and gardens. Staff are friendly and cannot do enough for you. We went on a couple of tours and their advice was spot on. Tip.... More

An amazing thank you to Susan. We normally stay at 5 star hotels and only do campervans around New Zealand, she is one of the most attentive "concierge" a few days before our arrival booking a yachting experience for us promptly. This was our 5th stay and as always she looked after us. Going the extra mile to look up... More

Immaculately kept, quiet site in an excellent location. We came for one night and like Russell so much we stayed for three. The site itself and the excellent facilities are immaculately maintained. We paid for one of the elevated sites to get the view over the town and harbour. The pitches themselves are not big but are well laid out.... More

We were a group of 9: we had one camper site and a cabin. This is sadly one of the few reviews I am not happy to write. We stayed two nights and they were enjoyable for the most part. The campgrounds were beautiful; we paid for an elevated site with a view, had we taken a site in the... More

Options for where to park and 'up top' has beautiful views. Good kitchen facilities, showers etc. Well maintained facilities and grounds and it was great to be able to park the motorhome and walk into Russell for a meal and back again. Loved the wekas in the bush surrounding the park.

I'll admit it - I am a bit of a snob, and was wary about staying in a Holiday Park (something I would never do in the US!) But when we found ourselves rolling into Russell during peak season without rezzies, we didn't have much choice. What a pleasant surprise! The entire facility is absolutely beautifully maintained. The location is... More
