Ideal location to explore the town. Staff are very helpful and friendly. A special thank you to Sasha who took the time to recommend places. Facilities are clean, although basic. Worthwhile paying the 5 dollars extra to get a view of the bay.

From the manicured gardens, terraced sites, range of accommodation options, amazing views and warm welcome, everything about Russell Top 10 ticks the boxes. The park is located in town and is a leisurely 5 minute stroll to the village of Russell. With panoramic views across the bay from the easy access elevated sites, the park is indeed the Jewel in...

This beautiful camp site is positioned in the heart of lovely Russell New Zealand's first capital and European settlement. We stayed for 2 nights, and it provided for all our needs. We were traveling in Our camper van. The views were stunning and we enjoyed the many walks in the area.

Booked the superior 2 bed unit, fantastic view over Russell and the harbour and lots of space. Unit was cold since its winter and the radiator was struggling to warm it up, we asked at reception and they happily gave us another heater and some blankets for the kids beds. We were snug for the rest of the weekend. Great... More
