Spring Creek Holiday Park
Reviewed March 10, 2013

This park charges similar rates to other holiday parks in the area but offers facilities that we judged to be far below standard. We found the basic cabin to be dirty, old, and worn; we found the nagging signs to be off-putting and unwelcoming (don't do this, don't do that, this isn't allowed, this is prohibited); and, we thought the shared facilities were in desperate need of renovation. We have stayed in holiday parks throughout NZ and found this to be one of the worst that we experienced. We would not stay here again and cannot recommend it to other travelers.

The cabins are made out of block work with low ceilings, gives you the feel your in a bunker with no windows, signs all over the place that your not allowed to cook or even eat in your own rooms, communal kitchen which is very unclean underneath in the cupboards, the pool is old & very shallow like a school pool, and the TV room is closed at 830pm nightly, so what's the point, my room had a flea invested duvet on my bed, disgusting, Not good enough!!!

We stayed here in our caravan for 4 nights in February. The holiday park is approx. 5-10 mins drive north of Blenheim just off the main highway. The park is showing some signs of aging and the ablutions blocks dated but relatively clean and well stocked. The surroundings are peaceful and pretty. There are ample powered sites some of which line the creek. Eddie the eel and mates and the trout we named Trev can be fed from the banks of the camping ground. A swimming pool provides a place to cool down in hot weather. We found the rates reasonable compared to Top 10 parks. This camping ground is on the main drag to many of the wineries and chocolate factory with easy access to winery restaurants if you have wheels. There is a local pub with cheap bar meals and convenience shop for groceries within 5-10 mins walk.
We would definitely stay here again as found this much more peaceful and appealing than the Top 10 in Blenheim and found the location acceptable distance from town to commute (via car).

One adult and child below 5 for $28 on powered site was not what I expected to pay for the value received. Place was shabby looking and toilets need a makeover. I stood there looking at the rates pasted in the office and found that hv paid more than I should by about 2 or 3 bucks! That's ok if it has not been updated but then again, what would I be thinking? Anyways, the value still isn't there so I guess, after comparing with other places, the place does not meet my expectations. Nothing around there to do either. Probably just a stopover if u get lost around the area.

A very family feeling camp ground.....just relaxed and laid back. Beautiful spot near the river, with a large trout and loads of huge eels. Our powered site was sheltered and spacious. We have been here 3 times now and always love it. There is a basic playground, and in summer a pool. Sure, not flash, but for just $30 a powered site we think it's great value.

Not good value at $70NZ (down for $80. Trucks thundered along the road all night and the loo dripped water continuously.

The sink tiny that water accumulated on the floor. You needed a pair of pliers to pull the plug out of the sink. The only good ready light was in the toilet.

A notice said ‘No food was to be cooked, prepared or eaten in this room’. So I am not sure what the microwave was for.

There was no towel and no TV.
