We held our children's combined birthday (4 and 6yrs) parties here and couldn't have asked for a better spot or more helpful hosts! The pool was just the right temperature and the children swam for hours - the sectioned off area of the large pool was perfect for the younger ones. Opal Hot Springs provided the BBQ and gas and...

This gem is only 5 minutes from town, which has everything you need. Whether you want to relax at the pool each day and enjoy the well maintained park or kayaking on Lake Karapiro or taking the many awesome walks around the area. This campsite has the best swimming pool in NZ and Matamata is only 40 minutes from Tauranga,... More

We stopped in on our way north, and the park has been let go for a few years. The new owners / managers are sleeves up and bringing the place back to a good standard. This place is great value with the 2 bedroom cottage costing $108 for two adults and two kids.The natural hot pool is a blast from... More

Stayed her at Christmas time and enjoyed it. Campground has all the basics and in good tidy condition. Hot pools were lovely and warm (obviously). The neighbours were a little bit noisy and the walls of the cabin were thin so not as quiet as we'd hoped but nothing major. Staff were nice, but there was a miscommunication between them... More

The two lovely owners have taken on a run down park and are doing everything they can to increase the standards quickly for guests. From the moment we arrived their sunny disposition filled up the campsite, just about every time I went into the bathroom the lady owner was in there scrubbing it - after having travelled from northland to...

We didn't really like this place. It was expensive and rather dirty. The showers were dirty, the roof was leaking so in the rain you have 2 showers, one from the roof and one actual shower :D For camp guest the access to the hot pools is free - that's good. But then again, those pools could really be cleaner!... More

Thankyou for your feedback. It may be of more help to us to know which shower the roof is leaking though as we have several throughout the park. We have been here 4 months and we welcome people coming to the office and letting us know of any issues so we can address them. I do remember you coming to... More

Planing to do a few walk in the area, so picked this place because it was quite close to Wairere Falls. Recieved a friendly greeting at the reception, and the lady gave me a map and made sure I knew where to go. Slightly dissappointed that the large chlorinated swimming pool was closed, as I was looking forwards to swimming.... More

The staff are absolutely wonderful and a credit to the park and the whole area. The hot springs are so relaxing and less than 10Km to Matamata and a trip to hobbiton!! Also less than 20km away is an amazing waterfall, Wairere Falls, which is a must see!! If you are in the area and want a very reasonable place... More
