Thank-you! We have found that everyone travelling enjoys to use wi-fi so why not make it free!
Hopefully we will see you again in the near future.

FREE Internet! FREE Showers! FREE Hottub & Sauna!
Very small tenting area that is on a bit of a slope is the only negative (and not a huge deal).
People were friendly and the communal kitchen/livingroom area was very modern.
Would definitely stay again!

Very quaint town in Wanaka, and this holiday park complements it to a Tee. The gals provide courtesy coach to town if you don't wanna drive and it is a nice half hour walk to back to the park after that if you'd like. Good facilities and quiet surroundings as well. Would recommend to others.

Hi Caravaline,
I'm glad you enjoyed your drop-off to town :) We have found since we are a little further from town its nice not having to pay for a taxi. Happy travels!

Being new to rv'ing (camper vans) we kept being pushed to the holiday parks... Most were loud, noisy and massive. We chose to do freedom camping vs staying there. But then we read about this place. We drove into Wanaka and fell in love. On top of a beautiful town and great location, the park is managed by a terrific and helpful staff - and has great amenities - all included! It is a 25 minute walk, but they will drop you by van into town for free and it's a beautiful walk back. Wifi is free and the bathrooms, spas, kitchens etc are terrific. It's quiet and well maintained. We came for one night and stayed for three!

Aspiring Campervan Park proved to be the right decision. Relaxed, well equipped and in peaceful surroundings, a short stroll away from the lake. The apartment we stayed in had all the necessary - happy to come back.

We stayed at the Aspiring Campervan Park for two nights in December 2011. The campervan park is small but has excellent facilities. The showers and toilets were clean and tidy and we enjoyed using the free indoor spa. Free wi-fi was also an added bonus, a service that is chargeable at the majority of other campervan parks. Wanaka is an amazing place to visit and although the campervan park is slightly out of the centre, there are lots of parking bays in the centre of town overlooking the lake. We would definitely recommend Aspiring Campervan Park to future travellers.

Hi Dusseldorf,
Thanks for posting such lovely feedback. We have tried offering more services in the past years such as bike hire and our drop-off courtesy coach between 4.15 & 9pm so that our guests dont have to find their own way to town and recently we have arranged with a couple of bars and restaraunts to do a return drop off which is great.

Hopefully we will see you again soon- Happy New Year!

Stayed here whilst on an extended tour of NZ. Found the facilities very good with adequate shower and toilet facilities. The kitchen, lounge area and free wifi were also a fantastic bonus.
On the negative side would have liked to have washed my clothes in hot water (not possible in the laundry) and the picnic benches were all delapidated and one fell apart when my husband sat on it (comical apart from the rusty nails!). It is also not within walking distance of town. Overall a decent site compared to many others in NZ.

Hi Ruthfa,
I am so sorry about our picnic tables- We have made more this month as it was definately on our to do list- I would have been happy to arrange a discount and done something with that picnic table!

Unfortunately we cannot offer hot washes as we are away from the main road we used to get complaints as to the lack of pressure whcih wasnt washing the clothes properly.

I will be posting an update video on our website this week so I will take a shot of our nice new tables for you! :)
