My wife and daughter booked a campervan for a weekend get away and chose to stay at Taumarunui Holiday Park for two reasons,
1 it's pet friendly
2 it's close to Mt Ruapehu.
We loved the location, very convenient with the town just a few minutes away and only an hour slow drive to the mount.
Phill, Helena and Mariane were superb hosts and we all loved the company of Dez the friendly dog and Julia the Kuni Kuni pig that thinks she's the boss.
We thoroughly recommend this park for the unique Kiwi experience and will most certainly return.
