I stayed in a campervan on the low field. You have to pay extra for the top level. But it was much quieter where I was so I was happy. Very good value at $18 a night. Good kitchen facilities - no cooking utensils, only chopping boards, but it was very clean. Also a good sized indoor eating area. Very difficult to watch the TV though when other people are chatting. Showers are paid for with 50 cent pieces for six minutes. They are daft - had these elsewhere - the coin box is on the outside of the shower which is OK if you only need six minutes. If you need to wash your hair etc you have to come out naked and wet to put more money in and hope no one is out side!
The owner is very friendly. Comes round to chat and invited me into his home for tea one morning. His wife is also very friendly as was the other lady who booked me in. Very helpful, checked weather conditions regularly for me and called the dolphin tour company to check what the best day for the trip would be.
I ended up staying an extra night. Russell is also a lovely little town, though very quiet in the evenings at this time of year with very few restaurants open.
But it has probably been my favourite site and place so far in my almost two months of traveling in NZ
