“Great welcome, and awesome facilities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

LOVE this holiday park, cook your meals under warming heaters, double doors to showers to trap in the heat, amazing showers with loads of room and shelf space, great laundry and free WIFI ... and not that far from town.

We have stayed a few times in one of the units attached to the park. Two of the units have open fires which is what brings us back. These units are new but they are clean, the furniture is new and they are totally self contained including an oven. There are other units that have been refurbished. The campervan park is excellent with lovely roomy, bright facilities. Both the units and the sites are given free and unlimited computer access and wifi. The staff and young and enthusiastic and couldn't be more helpful and flexible. Laundry prices are good compared to lots of other places I have been. It's close enough to town for the average fit person to walk and certainly the lake is accessible. There a views to the mountains and glimpses of the lake from the units.

We've just finished a tour of the lower South Island, freedom camping where possible and staying at parks every couple of days to plug the camper van in (and have a decent shower). This was one of our favourites - reasonable rates, awesome showers, a nice laundry and very friendly service. The only negative was being charged $10 more for our second visit than our first (3 days prior) - I didn't pick this up until we were miles away, and have no idea why the price went up for visit #2.

A great stay in a wonderfully set up camping ground.
Our family (2 adults, 2 children) stayed in the family studio unit - which was great!
Queen size bed and bunks - more than enough room in the unit.
No table - but having the "kitchen stools" at the bench was fine and saved on room.
Bathroom fine and self contained kitchen (hotplate and microwave) was perfect for our needs.
And the highlight for us were the 2 free spas which were hot and clean - and a sauna too.
Our girls loved the playgrounds and trampoline. We made use of the car wash area too.
Didn't need the laundry facilities, but were there if needed.
Would happily recommend and stay there again. Great, friendly service with a smile from everyone

We were only going to stay 3 nights, but ended up staying 5 nights due to my wife's injury from skiing. But we didn't mind at all! Great park, with great facilities, these guys have really thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. Daniel was particularly helpful and friendly. We will be returning there for sure!

Arrived in the dark & had to leave early the next morning but were impressed with the room. We had a family cabin & were all in the same room but it was very spacious & clean & had a kitchenette to make breakfast. Very reasonably priced. Staff were very helpful & friendly.
