We stayed one night here in our campervan, after walking the Tongario Crossing. The owners are so friendly and offered us their vege garden beside the kitchen, so we could create a fresh salad. Everything is extremely clean. There are lovely trees, and the park is beside an awesome river, which I strongly recommend swimming in, has its own rock slide/whirl pool.
I would definitely stay here again.
