The holiday park is quite calm, facilities quite ok, friendly and helpful staff.

However, I just do not understand why nobody cleans the barbecues. Even though I cleaned the barbecue before putting on my meat, my meat got all black as if somebody had spilled old oil from a car over it. Dinner was completely ruined. The BBQ it seems had not been cleaned for weeks :(

We stayed for one night at one of the powered campervan sites. The site had hedging around it affording some privacy which was great. We were really impressed by the amenities, spotless no matter what time of day. They also had music playing in there which was a nice touch. Would definitely stay here again.

Great facilities, very clean and in good location. As with all the top 10 holiday parks we stayed in I found it great value for money. Will definitely stay here again. Was in a camper van, nice site. Picton is a beautiful place. A bit quite in winter.

Thank you for your lovely comments about our holiday park.

We try hard to provide high quality, very clean facilities at an affordable price, and we are very pleased to learn we have achieved our goal during your stay.

You're quite right, Picton is a beautiful place, Something we need to let lots of other people know about so that it is not so quiet in winter in the future.

Thanks again for staying with us, we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Stayed here one night in a campervan. Park very quiet as it was early in May nearing the final leg of our trip back down to Christchurch.

Comments from our diary read: Top ablution block, spotlessly clean toilets and showers and a "state of the art" waste dump station for campervans.

The kitchen really impressed us with it's nice facilities and we really liked the little section set aside where you could "offload" your excess food items (unopened?) so that others may pick up something they could use. As this is a "jumping off point" to catch the inter-island ferry, I guess that lots of travellers terminate (or commence!) their journeys here.

The office lady was most helpful and offered us a warm Kiwi welcome and we got the pick of a very nice handy camping spot.
The rest of the park is set in trees and has a nice 'garden' feel to it with kids playground and plenty of amenities.

No complaints from us at this park. Tafiff was $42nz for the 2 of us for the night.

Wonderful Holiday Park. Fantastic location and grounds. Awesome Spa, costly but worth it for a treat. Very clean and modern.

Room Tip: We tented and that was great, with plenty of space and a picnic table, and very handy to facilities.

unit turned out to be very close to the busy road. Lots of traffic noise. the unit itself was the smallest we have ever stayed in!! Hubby thought it resembled a closet. For a few more dollars you can get something more spacious and better quality of accommodation, closer to town.

Room Tip: other units may be okay, but don't stay in the two closest to the busy road, unless you don'...
