The self-contained 3-bdrm house was really well set up - lovely grounds even in winter. Lovely people and just so relaxed. Highly recommend it to a family or group of friends (sleeps up to 7 people). Even had quite a few Pokemon around the mangrove walkway area for the kids to catch!

We had a fantastic experience at this holiday park, it was just perfect for a family of five - cosy little rooms (recommend - book bigger rooms if you want more space) - there are options to suit all, the pizza oven was the draw-card in the evenings, we made fantastic friends around this area, the kids loved the pool...

We stayed at this campsite for a couple of days, all amenities are very good but it is a protected site for the Weka birds, flightless and quite tame. They also encourage the kiwi bird to nest there. Very central for Russell, and across the road there are duck boards leading through a mangrove swamp. Very quiet and peaceful and... More

We stayed here in order to complete the circular Paihia-Russell day walk. Access to the walkway was easy and convenient, the accommodation (eco-cabin) was exactly as described and our hosts were very welcoming. If you want a quiet friendly place to stay away from the noise of the towns then this is ideal.

Our whole family stayed here for a family reunion and found it suited our purposes well. We had the Holiday House, the Tourist Flat, the Bungalow, the Cottage and a powered site, so it is fair to say we experienced everything. The best part of the stay was the warm pool, which the children and adults used daily. The tourists... More

Stayed here with my partner at the end of February 2016. The campsite is a little way from central town, which at first we thought would be a problem but the local people regularly went out of their way to help us. The whole time we were there we never had to wait more than a minute before someone would... More

We hired a cabin for two of us while the other 2 had a pitch for their camper van. The park is outside of Russell (we walked in twice) and is spacious, peaceful, and very eco-friendly. There were ducks, hens and North Island Wekas (including young ones) wandering around. Gorgeous place if that's what floats your boat... perfect for us.... More
