“HANDY TO CITY & EXCELLENT FACILITIES”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We found the park to be very clean and had such a friendly atmosphere, great facilities and so clean.
Ease of access to powered sites and amenities is a definite plus, an easy stroll to the Nelson Markets on Saturday was a bonus.
Would come back again and will recommend to fellow caravaners.

This was our second stay in Nelson and we did not even contemplate going elsewhere than the Nelson City Holiday Park. It is a relatively small park, but close to the city and roomy parking lots for motorhomes. The facilities are clean and you get a warm welcome.

I wish I had stayed more than one night. Campervan parks were just the right size and had good privacy. Facilities were sparkly clean and the showers were lovely and hot. There was a bit of a walk into town but good to have a leg stretch after a long drive. Only gripe was internet/wi-fi facility was only available for 10mins at a go. However I had a very pleasant stay and a peaceful night's sleep. I would recommend.

Fair site. Spoilt by the inappropriate location of the dump station. The site is in two halves, separated by a bridge over a creek. The power sites across the bridge each have their own dump station. However, the shared dump station has been sited so that people have to park on the bridge to use it and nobody else can then get in or out. People were tooting horns and tempers were fraying over this in the morning. When we asked the manager why not put it somewhere else he said that would mean one less paying site available. Enough said, not recommended until the layout pays more attention to customer convenience than the owner’s pocket.

Great location, if a bit noisy from traffic.
Can't beat the price or location, though!
It's located really great on the harbour with easy access to the Interisland ferry and the other ferries.
10 min walk to New World shopping mart and close to shopping and bar streets.
The facilities worked rather well, and we were quite happy with our stay.

We stayed 2 nights in our camper recently. The hosts are very friendly and helpful; camp very clean, with more than adequate facilities. The sites are large and private - some seemed a bit tricky to manipulate into but not too much of a problem really. Being close to the city centre was a bonus. Also, it was extremely quiet at night. We would recommend this camp.

Nice little holiday park in a 23 minutes walk proximity from the city centre. Toilets and showers are clean, no money needed to shower. Internet is there with IKS only. Nice playground and trampoline for children. Trampoline is damaged in the entrance area of the floor so better attend your child. 2 BBQs are provided but they are not well maintained and quite dirty, working only partly. Reception staff very helpful and easy check-In.
Dump point is badly located at a bridge in the campground and when you dump others cannot pass the bridge.

Room Tip: ...if you have a large campervan, do not take a spot behind the bridge, which is very narrow and you...
