My wife and I needed a place to stay for an early excursion in nearby Wanaka. We were blown away by the beauty of the area, the friendliness of the staff, and the quality of the campsites and facilities. Though we were only at the campground for roughly 15 hours (8 of which was spent sleeping), our brief use of the facilities on site were enough to conclude that this holiday park is a real gem.
I highly recommend that individuals traveling to the Wanaka area consider staying at this Holiday Park instead of in Wanaka or Queenstown. It is quieter than Wanaka and the distance from the activities in Wanaka is far less than traveling from Queenstown. Save time, money, and sanity!
