“Nice site... noisey at night with boy racers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Nice site in residential area of timaru, usuall top 10 cleanliness, good facilities, all spotless.
The site is just on the outskirts of timeru, so you will need to either drive in or take a bus, for the fit and willing you can walk . Theres a large supermarket within easy reach.
The staff (young girl) was extremely helpful.
The showeres were lovely, clean, plenty of hot water, and theres also a family room with a bath which im sure would be useful for young families.

Our penultimate stay in the top 10'sbefore our return to Christchurch saw one of the best Top 10 parks.

Lots of room on between the camper vans, clean, modern and ample facilities and helpful staff.

Well done again TOP 10

Having stayed in about 13 Top 10 camps in the last 3 weeks, this one was definitely one of the best. Nicely laid out and landscaped, very welcoming and quiet. All facilities are clean and well provided. It is within reasonable walking distance of town and a large supermarket is close by.

We (2 couples) stayed at there for one night at the 2 room cabin which is about 120 NZD per night. A good deal if you are four or more people. Room was clean and so was the kitchen and toilets.

What we were missing was free WiFi which we think should be included these days in such a type of accommodation. Anyway, in case you are nearby and need an accommodation we can recommend it.

We stayed for two nights in an ensuite unit. Staff were wonderful - very friendly and helpful.
Great unit, clean, tidy - had TV, tea/coffee making facilites with shower/toilet. Kitchen facilites in the communal blocks.
Great place to stay for the kids. They loved the playground and bouncy pillow.
Would definitely stay again.

We spent a night here on our way back to Christchurch.
We very much enjoyed our reception and our lengthy chat to the gentleman in the office.
The site was beautifully landscaped and cared for.
The washrooms were well appointed and spotless. I was pleased with the laundry facility and the lounge was warm and comfortable.
We were given a map and directions to walk into town and we enjoyed the walk with views of the sea. The town was also interesting with a good Visitor Information Centre where .they were very happy to call a taxi for us.

Room Tip: We didn't use a room - we were in an RV but the programme needs me to tick the box before it wil...

Stopped here in our motorhome in November on our tour of NZ coming up the coast from Dunedin heading to Christchurch. This is a nice little site and for $40 you can’t complain. It's set pretty much in the middle of a housing area and is about a 30 min walk into the town itself, which is a lovely walk and the town is a nice one at that.
