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.

Spent a wonderful week in the Purora Forest, and walking out needed some rest and resupply. The folks at Taumarunui Holiday Park made me feel very welcome. They came and picked me up at 7:00 at night which was great for this travel beat traveler. Helen and Phil made me feel right at home and Phil even set up tarp over my tent to help my stuff dry for the coming days walk. They have a great place and kitchen were one can gather and get to know the other campers. They made me feel right at home. Found out about their place from a local dairy in town. Thank Phil and Helen!

We stayed at the holiday park prior to doing the Whanganui 5 day canoe great walk and liked it so much, we returned after!

From get go Helene and Phil were welcoming! We'd planned to stay for one night, then we were pleased that plans changed!

The communal facilities are clean and tidy and have a real home from home feel which was just what we needed living from tent site to site. There's a fresh herb garden we LOVED and the kitchen had virtually all you'd need.

This place is very comfortable and homely. Des the Doog is a cutie and the ol' soggie moggie loves attention too!

We stayed on site mostly enjoying the grounds but managed to make it to the glow worms only 15 minutes away. These were impressive and well worth the trip! We've been to Waitomo and were WOWed there but these were almost better!!

I recommend this place to anyone. They have loads of room so the site never seemed over crowded by campers and they also have cabins dotted around for those who like a roof over head!

STAY HERE!

For anyone looking for a clean, picturesque and super friendly campsite, this is the place. Helene and Phil are hard to beat for their kiwi hospitality and the location is fantastic - for those travelling alone or with children.

Highlights for us included swimming in the Whanganui river (one minute walk from our site), the playground for the children, picking Helene's fresh herbs for dinner each night, absolutely spotless facilities, the gorgeous grounds and the chickens, Julia the pig, Des the dog and all the baby chicks, which the children loved.

A big thank you to Phil and Helene for one of our best camping holidays. Also to Marion for her lovely home baked shortbread, which we all got on Christmas day - delicious!

The holiday park is set in a lovely location, right by the river and surrounded by mature trees. Communcal spaces were really well equipped and clean, great showers. Phil and Helene, the owners, we so wonderfully friendly and helpful, well beyond our expectations. They made our time there so much more comfortable as they generously offered their own camping equipment for our use. The pig and chickens added rural charm. I would recommend the park to anyone.
