I camped here in my tent for 2 nights during the Rugby World Cup and it ended up being a decent place to stay while exploring Rotorua. The girls at the check-in were really helpful and provided me with a map to the tent camping area. I noticed there were many different lodgings, a few others tent camping, and a lot of people in campervans and motorhomes.
Near to the tenting area were the bathrooms, laundry and kitchen areas. The bathrooms were reasonably clean and also contained 3 or 4 showers. My only complaint would be that the windows were always open and it was still a bit cold outside, when taking a shower it could be very chilly. I didn't use the laundry facilities but they seemed to be pretty standard. The kitchen was clean and had 4 or 5 cooking areas, each with a stove, oven and sink, there was also a microwave and hot water dispenser.
Connected to the kitchen was an eating area which also had a TV, it was nothing special but I did have a good time watching one of the final RWC games with the other guests. I know there were some thermal pools/baths here but I didn't take the time to try them out so I cannot comment on them. Overall the park seemed clean and taken care of and there were a lot of people staying there, the price was reasonable for tent camping and they had all the facilities a camper would need.
