Fantastic site with some of the best facilities anywhere in the North Island. And the view over Russell and the Bay of Islands is awesome. Best of all is the location, ten minutes walk to the centre of Russell, 15 minutes walk to a great beach and 20 minutes ish climb to Flagstaff Hill for some truly amazing views. It... More

We booked three units for a Christmas family reunion with 13 people of all ages. It couldn't have gone better. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the campground simply has everything you could want. The views are great, the walk into town or over to Long Beach isn't too long. Excellent holiday at an excellent holiday park.

Stayed in a cabin which had everything we needed (fridge, kettle, crockery, towels) and was clean and comfy although small. The bathroom was close by and also spotless. There is a kitchen which we didn't use and several gas BBQ. Showers are 50c per 6 min (first 6mins provided). It is around 300m from the beach front, restaurants and ferry... More

4 nights in a Kombi van on a powered site at the Russell Top 10, with jaw-dropping views across to Paihia and Opua. Playground with 2 trampolines and large grassy areas with plenty of picnic table settings for meals outdoors. Staff arranged activities for the kids on rainy days - my boys loved the treasure hunt the most. It was... More

Hi Phillippa, thanks for reviewing our park. It's great to hear you love the family activities because we love putting them on! You will be happy to know that we are extending the covered area even further over the camp kitchen deck and are adding a new covered area over the barbecues too. So when you come back to see...

Have been going to Russell Top 10 every January for a few years now. New managers on site and they are making some great changes - kids activities over the summer, outdoor cinema some nights of the week, upgraded playground equipment, linen now included in pricing for units, new uniforms for the staff makes them really visible which adds to...

Fantastic setting with wonderful views across the bay to Paihia and Waitangi, even a para-skier doing their thing at one stage. A short walk to cafes, restaurants, wharf, museums and Pompallier House. Studio Unit clean, tidy and contained everything we needed including covered verandah to sit on and have a coffee - what more could you want!!

Oh Dear things have changed here & not for the better! No unit servicing now - no replenishment of coffee - towels etc unless you request. Small unit @ motel prices. Unbearably hot! Awful smell in our bathroom (sick not sewage). We have stayed here many many times over the years but will re-think our accommodation choice on our next... More

Hi Susan and Mike. I am very disappointed to hear you had an unpleasant stay with us this time. After speaking to many guests we recently made the decision to change daily servicing to an optional extra. The feedback was overwhelming that, due to the short average length of stay in our park, people would rather have a cheaper cabin/villa... More

Lovely campsite, we stayed one night on a powered site, paying the extra for a bay view, worth the extra couple of dollars as the view was beautiful. The usual facilities, all very clean and tidy. 50 cents for 6 minutes in the shower. Perfectly located with a 5 minute stroll into town. The museum, church and beaches are close... More

3 nights on a powered site in our motorhome. Warm welcome, great activities organised for the children, good playground, decent showers, good kitchen. We were very happy with our stay here. Russell is beautiful and peaceful as a location and the Top 10 campsite is the perfect place to stay.

Russell is a beautiful town, the camping ground is great nicely positioned close to town. It was very clean and had great facilities, kitchen showers and play grounds. We enjoyed out stay a lot and would recommend it if your up that way.
