Such a great location and facilities are sweet as! Lake is just there, shops down the road. We stayed in both a tent site and in a cabin with bunks and a TV. We loved both and would highly recommend this place to all cruising the area. Even had a baby bath in the shower block for bathing our little... More

Arrived late at night and site details had been left for us for our powered motorhome site. Site was tight in size. There was one set of Ablutions and these were unisex and insufficient toilets and showers to cope with the high season demand/volume of people on the site. Showers cost $2 for 10 min which was also inconvenient and... More

We have stayed here a few times, and although it is nothing outstanding (although the views are), there is nothing to complain about. Great meeting some of our overseas visitors and seeing how much they enjoy the scenery. The camp is well situated and close to town, and a short walk from the hot pools. The cabins are basic, but...

An exceptionally beautiful spot. We booked months in advance and so got the prime spot with the view featured on their website. It is very popular in the holiday season so expect a fairly crowded camp. Toilet facilities generally very good (pay for showers, just $2); didn't use the kitchen so can't comment. Great activities on the lake - kayaking,... More

We stayed at the holiday park in a camper van and found the location and facilities were all very good. The toilets and showers were clean, although it was annoying having to pay $2 for a hot shower. Its location on the lakeside is spectacular and is probably the best location we've stayed at in NZ.

I was here during the busy holiday season, so my experience could be clouded by the fact that all of Canterbury was camped in this one campground. We had a tent campsite, and all of the other sites were packed with tents-large tents taking up every square mm of campsite available. The people next door took over the water spigot... More

Was here for one night only on our road trip heading back towards Christchurch. Got a spacious non-powered/ tent site for our campervan (we booked online in advance but all the powered sites were taken! Make sure to book extra early during the summer). The park is set between the lake and trees, very cosy. There were rabbits and all... More

Hi there Thanks heaps for taking the time to tell us about your stay. We could really do with another 100 power sites over that busy period to accommodate everyone. The marquee is a very popular addition over the Summer to help us cope with the extra travellers and serves well as a dining and lounge area. We have actually... More

WHat a great place for the kids ! We stayed in a well equipped Cabin that was roomy and had everything we needed. The facilities were well maintained and very clean. Can't wait to return in winter to experience the colder climate and activities that come with winter.

We had a room which was a double room with ensuite . Had a queen bed and bunks . Bunks were squeaky and loud but comfortable with plenty of warm blankets even though we stayed in summer .
