“Must Stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

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.

It is hard to say what it is that makes this place so appealing. I am not usually a big fan of camp grounds but this place nails it. The cabins are clean and cosy, the setting wonderful, the hosts welcoming and the ambience bucolic heaven. I have stayed here three times and will return again.

Our cabin exceeded expectations.. clean white crisp linen, mugs, plates, cutlery with a mirror and easy to read by lights. The park is beautifully kept with herbs for guest use growing at the kitchen door. The bathrooms, kitchen and toilets are lept very clean. The mature trees, birds, and freindly hosts made our 3 day stay just perfect. Taumarunui for New Year - an inspired choice.

Room Tip: A 4 berth cabin for 2 gave us good space as we were staying 3 nights.

Taumarunui's location is exceptionally good for wherever outdoor activity you want to take. The Holiday Park makes an excellent base to stay and enjoy yourself in wherever you feel like doing while in Taumaruniu area>Options are multiple, from Kayaking to mountain biking, to road riding, to touring, to tramping, to simply relaxing and feeling lazy.... Top place top location....And a special mention to what really makes the good even better: Top people managing the camp. Thanks a lot Helen, Phill, .....and cute Julia. You really made my special stay there truly memorable.

This is a pretty camping ground where we were made very welcome. The hosts really seem to care for the comfort of their visitors. We were offered use of the herb garden which was very welcome. We were in our campervan, some of the site was not quite level but checks were provided to help level up, a great touch.

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.
