We stayed here as we thought it would be the nearest most convenient place to get to the Tongariro crossing. Wish we didn't. I am totally in agreement with some of the reviews below - I don't know whether because they're the closest national park in that area that they feel they can abuse their status and treat everyone like...

This site had great facilities, especially the new showers, and the location is ideal for walking the day Tongariro Crossing hike. The kitchen gets really busy, as does the site as a whole, but we'd still recommend staying.

I can totally agree with the comments below on the behaviour of the owners. They abuse their position of being one of the only holiday parks in the area and deliver poor service. The so called 'new' shower facilities are falling apart already. The kitchen is way too small for the entire campsite. They aren't fond of the 'younger crowd'.... More

My cousin and I have been backpacking all around New Zealand and we have stayed at MANY holiday parks, including DOC sites and this is by far the WORST experience we had both ever had. We drove from napier to the tongariro national park to stay at the holiday park so we could wake up early and hike the tongariro... More

my partner and I arrived late after a 6 hour drive after work to the holiday park, only to be greeted by a very upset and rude staff member who then proceeded to scold us for driving our car in so late (11.30), then stormed off. The next morning upon checking out we told another staff member about our encounter... More

Very helpful & friendly staff! Basic and cheap rooms. Ablution block is under renovation. Shared kitchen small, crowded and very few pans and utensils (stolen?). Best for Tongariro Crossing. Fantastic transport and support! We enjoyed our stay and will go again.

Arrived in November with our small campervan. Desk was very helpful and we found a spot on the field snuggled in with all the other campers. The washrooms and showers were fine. Showers were newly renovated. The common room was uninspired. If I was spending a rainy day here I would have been disappointed. BUT this Holiday Park is located... More

A bit disappointed by out stay... You have to bring absolutely everything as there isn't linen,and "someone had stolen the pots and pans" in the shared kitchen,which mean we were carrying over 20kg of luggage for only 2 nights... Toilets and bathroom are alright, not the cleanest (shared btw) but good pressure and hot water. DO NOT USE the hot... More

Very disappointed by our stay! Check in ok, we were informed that 500mb of internet cost $10. A bit expensive but we wanted to contact our families for Christmas and download some pictures from our trip around NZ. Well don't bother paying that much because you'll be very disappointed! Impossible to skype without the connection to be stopped. We only... More

We stayed here to do the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. The buildings look like they could use a new coat of paint and in need of some TLC, but the rooms, kitchen and bathroom were pretty clean. Bathrooms and showers look like they have been recently renovated, along with the kitchen. There are a few pots and pans you can use... More
