This is a very well run site, which is nice and clean and tidy,the staff were very welcoming and helpful, Derek Kelly made our stay very pleasant and we had good banter about Irish Rugby. Many people travelling from the North Island land in Picton and head straight south, I am glad we didn't it was worth the stop over... More

Stayed here as part of a Wildlife Service reunion.....what a great spot. We had a self contained unit and it was great. The staff were amazing ( and very tolerant). The facilities were great and served all our needs. We would stay here again if in Picton. Thanks very much for putting up with us.

I headed straight here after driving off the ferry, and was not alone. There was already a sign outside indicating that the cabins were full. Apparently, they stay busy here. I got a campsite, but likely one of the last available. It was very small, though I think I noticed that others were a little larger. I have a two-man... More

Well run site. All facs you need. Showers, toilets, kitchen dump station etc all excellent. Plus a heated pool, spa and nice playground for the kids. Sites well spaced out and had the nice feel of being a smaller site but with all the top 10 finishes. To town straight across the rd through the marina, 10 mins max. Ferry,... More

First time at a Top10 campground; lovely facilities, spotlessly clean, bright, modern, heaps of room around the grounds, staff really helpful and friendly. Close to town, handy to the waterfront. Loved it so much I bought a membership!

Young guy in office very helpful going around the site on his bike to ensure everyone was ok and even went out of his way to find us an international stamp for a postcard back home. Cannot... More

A lovely, well-kept site with good spaces for camper vans. It was a refreshing change to have verdant surroundings. Close to town and the harbour this site is very handy for the ferries and is a good base to do some walking or cycling. Clean facilities and very helpful staff. All in all a good place to stay either for... More

After 22 days on the South Island this was our last Top 10 site and we were not disappointed. Probably the best we have stayed at given location to the town, cleanliness, pretty and well laid out and not BIG. Very friendly polite staff.

This has been our third visit to the Picton top 10 and definitely won't be our last. We stayed for four nights with our three children and as always they spent most of their time in the pool or on the playground. Our room was amazing. We were very lucky to get the newly renovated room 8. It was so... More
