Facilities were clean, pitch site a decent size. Liked the natural shade created by the trees. Nice to have free showers. Play area well suited to little ones. A few things were out of order but clearly signed and unfortunately the road was rather noisy.

As i walked into the bathrooms.....wow! As i walked into the kitchen.......wow! Never seen a campsite with such clean facilities,those little touches make so much difference. The cloths in the bathroom to clean up after yourself,the flowers on the table in the kitchen,the worktops were spotless. I hope everyone appreciates it and cleans up for the next person! This is gold

Fairly easy to find, just out of town. Our site wasn't quite level but OK. Really need a vehicle or at least a bicycle to get around. It is a very long walk to the nearest public access to the waters of lake Taupo. Also a fairly long walk in to Taupo itself from the Great Lake holiday park. Facilities are fine, toilets, showers, laundry & camp kitchen. Some outdoor seating and tables. Also a couple of BBQs available for use. Some shade provided, which is welcome in summertime in sunny New Zealand. The holiday park is a good base if you plan to spend some time in Taupo. I probably won't be coming back.

Thanks for noting our good facilities and shady spots in our park. Yes "we are a good base if you plan to spend some time in Taupo". We are surrounded by farmland but are also only a five minute drive from the town centre and our lake front. We have had wonderful feedback from guests over the summer and many guests have extended their stays..

We loved this place! Clean, nice Team and you have plenty activities on your doorstep without beeing in the middle of the tourist Town. You can also do Rotorua right from here, as well as Mount Doom. We enjoyed and stayed two nights longer!

We got lost in Taupo and was directed here by a seafront security guard. Consequently the office was closed when we found the site. Next morning went to the office and said we had stayed the night before. Staff couldn't have been nicer and welcomed us. Stayed on another night as it was so good. Great showers and cooking facilities, was like home from home. Loved the trampoline! This site would be great for kids/families. Quiet sport that we thoroughly enjoyed. Would definately recommend.
