“Smaller and more personal!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

All top 10s we have stayed at have been great but this one is smaller and more personal making it very close to all amenities..We had a powered site as towing a caravan. Great views of the hills behind us. Fantastic facilities - very clean and all extras supplied - free wi-fi, filtered water, hand and toilet steriliser, lots of hooks in showers etc. 5 minutes easy walk to town and only 13km to nelson - an easy bike ride on great cycle tracks. Within an hour of Takaka hills, Mapua, Golden bay. Able tasman etc. The Managers Gary and Helen Borcovsky were super helpful and friendly. When we come back to nelson this is the place we will stay as can't fault it. I don't know where Chloe N. stayed but certainly can't have been here! Thanks again Helen and Gary - this place is a credit to you and your caretaker is super efficient and helpful as well.

We stayed in most of the Top 10 holiday parks on the south island and this was by far the worst and one of the most expensive. There were no baby change facilities or bath, the kitchen was poorly equipped un-inviting and closed at 9, you have to pay for the BBQ. The internet was not IAC like most of the other parks so our internet subscription was useless. It was not leafy and green either, mostly concrete.
The only positives were that the staff were friendly enough and it was quite quiet.

Having just returned from beautiful New Zealand I would like to share my experience at Richmond Nelson Top 10. My husband and I stayed at Top 10 Parks all over the South Island and with the exception of one Park, could not fault any. We were in a rather large Motorhome so needed space to accomodate it. We were only going to stay one night at Richmond but stayed two. The park itself is exceptionally clean and well appointed, with really plenty of space on each site. The Motel accommodation is very comfortable and adequate. Access to and from the Park is very easy even with a large vehicle. Gary and Helen we did not meet but Carol and her partner are very special people. Extremely helpful and friendly making us Aussies feel very welcome indeed. I was quite ill on arrival and Carol went above the call of duty to help us. So much so she made available a unit for me and helped with directions etc., for medical help. I did improve so we stayed and were able to enjoy some of the sights of the surrounding areas. Carol suggested places to go to make my time there very pleasant. She is such a gem and has a wonderful sense of humour and a most infectious laugh. Will definetely stay again and would recommend to all. Two oldies from Aussie. Love the Rugby.

Two of us stayed in our car on the site for 3 nights. We was going to stay 2 but loved it that much we stayed an extra night.
We had a non powered site - nice locations with our own bench! (Very handy) sat out and had some drinks.
It's peaceful there and very clean.
The kitchen was really handy with the facilities you need!
We was on such budget & we think Carol is a Gem! We had no appliances such a plates and cups as we are poor backpackers and she kindly donated us with a set of plates, glasses, cutlery which she let us keep for the rest of our travels. She went out of her way to help us. And she kindly helped with lots of useful information about the area. And sent us to some very VERY good wineries.
The pool is nice and refreshing. Rather chilly but after a boiling day it's well deserved :)
All the members of staff are very friendly
Very clean and tidy
We had wifi
And paid 20 dollars which we were really happy about!
Thank you for having us. We will be coming again

We stayed on this site for two nights in a motorhome whilst touring South Island. This is a small, town site with two access points - one from the main road and a second in the direction of the town centre and shops which are a ten minute walk away. There are no more than 20 pitches for motor vans / caravans / tents and a few self-catering motel units so the site is quite small.

We were welcomed on arrival by polite, friendly and helpful staff who were happy to give advice and directions on things to do and places to park in Nelson as well as being given directions to the local shops.

The campsite facilities were clean and in good repair, but were old and the toilets / showers having shorter than usual doors made one feel there was a lack of privacy. Two other unisex toilets opened directly onto a thoroughfare and due to the lack of privacy I would only choose a short stay at this particular campsite.

We (2 couples) stayed here for two nights in a self-contained unit. Rooms are very clean and have all what is needed. We got unlimited internet (although you need to ask for more vouchers after 250 MB). Price-wise we think is quite worthwhile if you are 4 people. It's located near to the wineries and about 90 minutes from Abel Tasman National Park.

We spent 4 nights here camping in a tent, and got a very spacious powered site. We loved that it was a nice quiet camp site, it was a nice small size which meant we were in easy walking distance to the toilets, showers and kitchen. All the area's we visited seemed really clean and tidy and all the staff we came across were very friendly! It was our first trip to the Nelson area and this campsite was so handy to visiting Nelson town, and also heading away for day trips. We were very happy with our stay here, and would stay again :-)

Room Tip: we had a camp site down the far end of the camp ground, and it was lovely and quiet
