Nothing fancy about this place. But the cabin we had was clean, as was the common bathroom. The park is very quiet and relaxing and the owners were very friendly and accommodating. It is a great value.

We had not visited Thames before. We were wanting a safe, clean, fun and peaceful camping holiday for our two children. We found it at Dickson. Friendly staff, warm atmosphere and plenty of entertainment as well as beautiful weather. We will definitely be returning next year!

Quiet spot with the river bubbling away in the background. Friendly, helpful staff. Good sized site. Kitchen well organised with a sunshine dining area. Very pleasant overnight stay during our long travels.

I'm sorry that your stay at our camp wasn't a happy one. Ive spoken to all the staff about being rude at the counter and no one recalls being so. All our staff are asked to be polite and helpful to customers and I'm disappointed that this was your experience. We take great pride in our facilities being clean and...

I booked the dorm on a backpacking tour for a day hike on Coromandel. The Rocky Trial right next to the campsite is a great for 2-3 hours, but you can also do a greater hike to Thames via Tararu Tramping Track (about 6-8 hours). Facilities are rather old, but well maintained and very clean. The whole park is very...

Thanks Neil for the great weekend. Stayed for two nights. Travelled up from Hawkes Bay for a fishing trip. Great place to fillet fish. Rooms were well looked after and heaps of space. Very affordable for the location. Well recommended accomodation for a family. Darren.

Gorgeous scenery, absolutely lovely people, helping us hopeless tourists from Aus. Spent half my time outside sitting in the gardens and near the creek, wonderful area and so relaxing. Would definitely come back again, thank you for your beautiful hospitality! X

Visited Friday 2nd September for one night, booked a powered site for a campervan. The site allocated was part of the carpark and not a proper site. We choose this park because it is part of the Kiwi Holidays Parks group, its just a pity we didn't check trip advisor first. The whole park is in urgent need of a...

We bought the Holiday Park at the end of April and have been busily working upgrading. Where you had your campervan was not a carpark, it was a large concrete pad where we park campervans when it is wet. It is designed to comfortably accommodate 4 vans and has power outlets accordingly. Our kitchen and shower block are immaculately clean,...

We stayed here recently as part of a sports group. We had a single bed unit. The price at $120 seemed steep for what was provided. We had no hot water for a morning shower and the unit was freezing cold as was the camp generally as it's located in a gully. We also used the oven to heat dinner...

Our self contained flats at $120 per night sleep 6. The hot water unit had sprung a fault and was fixed as soon as we were notified - it had been working perfectly well the day before. We have also tested the oven and it is working - other people have been using it with no problems. Im so sorry...
