We parked our motor home he for 2 nights as the view was divine and the little town very picturesque, even in winter. The staff are friendly and accommodating and as we had our pick of sites we went with one that looked out over the town and the water to the coast on the other side. The facilities are... More

This park was well suited for our MotorHome. It is up the hill behind Russell’s village, but only a short walk to the village. It is also about a 1 km walk over a hill to the ocean beach (Long Beach). We took one of the sites with a view which also have the benefit of being closer to the... More

We stayed two nights (7-8 May) in this very pretty park and soaked-up the glorious views over the town of Russell and the waters of the Bay of Islands right from the rear windows of our motorhome. We were given a very friendly welcome by owner Bonnie, who also willingly helped us to relocate to an even better site for... More

Stayed here two nights in our campervans. What a beautiful Holiday Park. We were offered and accepted a couple of spots on the hill overlooking Russell and the bay. Most of the amenities were all very good with the exception of the BBQs that were a little bit so so as they didn't have knobs or automatic lighters. Take matches.The... More

Thank you for the wonderful review and 'hot tip'. We were pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay on the Deluxe Powered Sites. Regarding the BBQ's, unfortunately the knobs keep disappearing on our BBQ's and all attempts to keep them attached have failed. We also have matches available at reception if you are having difficulty lighting the BBQ's. The staff... More

We found it a great place to stay, especially overlooking the harbour from the "penthouse". You may actually come across some Wekas looking for a hand-out Not only that Russell should be on everyone's "bucket list" and go across to Waitangi for an unbelievable visit.

What a lovely place. The cabin we had was beautifully clean, had fantastic views, and was very good value. We stayed in quite a few top ten sites while touring N.Z.. This was one of the best. Also very helpful receptionist, nothing was too much trouble. Excellent stay, would definitely recommend it.

Amongst the best campsites that we have stayed in over the last month. Very prettily situated on the edge of town, an easy 5minutes walk away. Well looked after, and very good facilities. Very friendly staff/owners who obviously cherish it. Initially disappointed to have to pay 50cents for a shower, but if it helps to save water, which is scarce... More
