We stayed at the Cosy Cottage camp site on the advice of the local tourist information centre and we were not disappointed. We rented a non powered site for our camper van and paid 20NZ dollars per person per night.
First of all the staff are great, they are a young couple who run the place and will go out of their way to do anything for you. We were given a map for the town and they talked us through everything there is to do and how to get there. They also tried to save us money on a few attractions and places to eat.
The facilities are of a high standard. There is a big outdoor swimming pool and 3 heated natural mineral pools which are available to use until 10pm. We used them twice a day and they were very popular in the evening which was great. There is a large kitchen to cook your food and a large communal area which had a tv area and a pool table. A very unique and wonderful amenity of the camp site is their natural thermal steam cooker which uses the thermal heat from the local lake to cook anything. We used it to cook lamb and fish and both meals were amazing.
Around the campsite there is a large childrens play area, a bubbling hot mud pool which is fenced off but is interesting to look at. Possibly the best feature of the site is the small private beach by the lake where you can dig in the sand and unearth hot water from the ground and make your own private beach spa! Very interesting indeed.
If you are planning a trip to Rotarua and you are looking for a room, campervan or tentsite then make sure you stop by this place. You wont be disappointed.
