We stayed for two nights mid March while on a 21day Motorhome tour of South and North islands. Excellent location close to lake - very clean - all facilities - very helpful and friendly staff. Short drive to Taupo centre - good selection of shops and restaurants. We had a powered site right on the lakeside - can be a little noisy at night with traffic from the main road but that is more than compensated by the lakeside position and view. Well worth a visit would highly recommend.
