We read a few bad reviews about this place about dog poo and rude mark....but totally opposite. We found a friendly mark well kept park and quirky games room. It was like stepping back in time but nice. ...it felt homely and family friendly loved sitting in the warm lounges with the wood fired fireplace on max....cause it was cold...... More

If you have a dog, this place would be heaven. If you don't like dogs.. well go elsewhere. The dogs there are were well behaved (funny to have a little white dog peeking under the toilet door :) ) but yeah need to watch where you walk which is a shame. large games room, tv room, good kitchen. 50c showers,...

Great play ground with grass tennis court just ask at office for racquet's . Hot showers Nice big camp kitchen. Tv room with sky. Large games room with pool... More

I did not find the campground littered with dog poo as per previous reviewer, the facilities were clean and the grounds very tidy. The opwners are very friendly and laid back, nothing was a problem. Only negative is they ahve coin operated showers. The best thing about Methven Camping Ground was we could take our dog with us. He loves... More

We came to this camping ground on motorcycles and a 4 wheel drive vehicle. While enquiring about the price of the various options we were surprised that the price kept on changing and indeed was rising. ON asking why the price was changing and increasing the the manager of the camping ground got really up-tight and said take it or... More

Stayed here recently and was received well by hosts. Very cheap rates for full facility. I agree with the last 2 reviews on dog poo and no wifi. In fact I had to avoid a dog poo which was in the way of my water hose when filling up. Wifi is present but bad reception even at the amenity block... More

We stayed this park and found the owner to be pleasant and easy going and found a powered camping site relatively easy. It was dark by the time we arrived and walked into town for a great night out at the Blue Pub and returned back the van quite late and frequently walked back and forwards to the toilet. Once...

This is a large fairly basic cheap camp site on the edge of the town. There are not many powered sites but plenty of space for camping and a number of motel rooms. Communal facilities are a little basic as are the showers although there is a lot of hot water. In the summer on a good day, the camp... More
