5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

This was absolutely the best campervan park we stayed in. Great location, very helpful staff, very clean, lovely facilities, including free internet and great log burning stove. Absolutely recommended.

This was a fantastic stop for us on our South Island Tour. Stuart was extremely helpful accommodating our request for a non-powered campervan site at a reasonable rate for our family. We often found it difficult to find places to park our campervan without paying a small fortune. We were self-contained, so really only needed a spot to park. The showers and bathrooms with their heated floors were spotlessly clean. The free Wifi was a huge bonus for our children and the location is fantastic with stunning views of the mountains and lake. We look forward to returning :)

Great site, great views, great staff.

Kitchen and lounge were clean and warm. The bathrooms were lovely and warm with under floor heating and the radio playing and very clean. There were a couple of the hobs in the kitchen that didn't work - our only grumble.

They also offered free wi-fi which a first in NZ for us after weeks of travelling. We ended up staying 5 nights

Hi debstheleo,
Our fireplace is still cranking for our guests and the underfloor heating!
Sorry about the hobs- if you come back PLEASE let us know if things like this happen so that we can fix it.
Thanks for experiencing our park and hopefully we will see you again soon!

This was the best caravan park we stayed at in our 2 week trip to NZ, the best by far ! The heated bathrooms were a big bonus, and they were nice a clean !, none of the other parks we stayed at had this, and most others were unclean or small. The staff were very very helpful and friendly, and little valued added things like free hot chocolates in the mornings were great.

This was probably the best of all holiday park during our 2 weeks of motorhome holiday around the South Island. It was also the most expensive but included free wi-fi for all your electronics (we had 4 logins). Unfortunately, the wi-fi wasn't continuous so you lost coverage sometimes.
There is a free sauna and spa which looked great but we didn't have time to try out. The best thing of all was the underfloor heating in the shower and toilet area so that you weren't freezing when you got out of the shower. The faciflities were always clean and in good repair.
The views were spectacular and when we opened the door of our motorhome we had a view of Mt Aspiring.
And of course, who could forget the free hot chocolate in the mornings.

Basic cabin
We had the basic cabin which we called the shed, this was a bit harsh as we really enjoyed it and would go back. The cabin had a fridge, T&C facilities, microwave and heating. The site had free sauna and hot tub/spa, good kitchens (but no pots and pans so take your own) and nice clean bathrooms.

If you stay in Wanaka go to the local cinema called Paradeso, a must for all visitors.
While we were there we also did a 15,000 foot skydive that we would highly recommend, some of the best views in the world for doing a skydive.

This is a great park. Spacious powered sites. Heated bathrooms, piped music, good laundry, enclosed spas and well maintained grounds. Showers are included in the nightly rate which is good, washing machines $2 and dryers $4.The park is popular and many arrive late afternoon, early evening. In busy times it would be advisable to book ahead. This is an ideal place to stay in Wanaka, a short drive to the centre of town and close to ski fields. We would stay here again and recommend this place to others. Discount vouchers are often available on trip advisor where the reviews are. We used one for 10% discount. The following month is one child free per site.
