I stayed in an ensuite cabin which was quite roomy & had all the basics including fridge, jug, toaster as well as a couple of hot plates if I had wanted to cook. Nice & clean too. Really quick walk into Picton via the marina walkway. The staff were really friendly & helpful.

We passed through Picton in our motorhome, heading south, in mid December. After a smooth, sunny crossing of Cook Strait we deiced to stay in Picton a few days to explore and enjoy, rather than rush through as we usually do. We had two nights at Picton Top 10 then, and it was so good, that we stopped by again... More

We stayed in both a kitchen cabin and a self contained family unit. Both were immaculately clean and not too cramped. Very friendly staff. Great location - only 10 minutes to town. Would recommend. Teenage daughter loved the Wifi!

This was our base for one night once we came off the ferry before our drive down to Christchurch and one night before we caught the ferry back to Wellington again. We had never stayed at a holiday park before with our young family and were surprised as to how lovely the environment was. We stayed in a one bedroom... More

Another good top 10. Would have been one of the best but the tent sites are a little small and the price is very high. That said the facilities are excellent. The pool is good for kids and it is an easy walk to town. Staff were very helpful and good to talk too

Second visit here and it's a great place. A well laid out park with little nooks. About 5-10 min walk from marina and Picton main shops (walk around the Marina). Clean and tidy kitchens with some utensils and plates for communal use (and a box of basic food ingrediants). 6 min showers, music in the bathroom, good for kids of... More

We have been travelling around the South Island for the last 2 and a half weeks ... This is one of the best camping grounds we have visited .... The pool and activities were great to keep the kids entertained ... The cabin and grounds were clean and tidy and staff very friendly. Wish we could have stayed longer ...... More

As we travelled around the South Island, we stayed at Top 10 parks whenever possible, & as usual, we were very happy with the sites, the facilties & the location of Picton for our 1 night stay. It was a little tight manouevering the motorhome around to the site, but that's the only complaint. Kitchen facilities were spacious & well-equipped.... More

After travelling around the North island and staying in numerous caravan parks, this one is rated by me as number 1. A very refreshing final night on the road, wish we had stayed longer, but we will be back for sure. very clean and tidy facilities, located close to the town center, and quiet. Tons of extras provided here too,... More
