This was the best caravan park we stayed at in our 2 week trip to NZ, the best by far ! The heated bathrooms were a big bonus, and they were nice a clean !, none of the other parks we stayed at had this, and most others were unclean or small. The staff were very very helpful and friendly, and little valued added things like free hot chocolates in the mornings were great.

This was probably the best of all holiday park during our 2 weeks of motorhome holiday around the South Island. It was also the most expensive but included free wi-fi for all your electronics (we had 4 logins). Unfortunately, the wi-fi wasn't continuous so you lost coverage sometimes.
There is a free sauna and spa which looked great but we didn't have time to try out. The best thing of all was the underfloor heating in the shower and toilet area so that you weren't freezing when you got out of the shower. The faciflities were always clean and in good repair.
The views were spectacular and when we opened the door of our motorhome we had a view of Mt Aspiring.
And of course, who could forget the free hot chocolate in the mornings.

Hi Gemm11,
Thanks for your review- PLEASE anyone else staying with our park- if something is wrong or not working we need to know so that we can fix it- our wifi should be going 24/7 100%.

However thanks for posting great feedback :)

Happy travels!

Basic cabin
We had the basic cabin which we called the shed, this was a bit harsh as we really enjoyed it and would go back. The cabin had a fridge, T&C facilities, microwave and heating. The site had free sauna and hot tub/spa, good kitchens (but no pots and pans so take your own) and nice clean bathrooms.

If you stay in Wanaka go to the local cinema called Paradeso, a must for all visitors.
While we were there we also did a 15,000 foot skydive that we would highly recommend, some of the best views in the world for doing a skydive.

This is a great park. Spacious powered sites. Heated bathrooms, piped music, good laundry, enclosed spas and well maintained grounds. Showers are included in the nightly rate which is good, washing machines $2 and dryers $4.The park is popular and many arrive late afternoon, early evening. In busy times it would be advisable to book ahead. This is an ideal place to stay in Wanaka, a short drive to the centre of town and close to ski fields. We would stay here again and recommend this place to others. Discount vouchers are often available on trip advisor where the reviews are. We used one for 10% discount. The following month is one child free per site.

We have just returned today from our motorhome holiday in the South Island. We came across this great park via the tourist radio network What a find and an absolute gem!!! Excellent facilities, including heating in the showers/toilets, great kitchen and a view to die for. To top it off, free wifi. An absolute must for travellers stopping off in Lake Wanaka.

Little but exellent campsite near the town. Happy to finally find a place with fast and free wifi! We stayed warm in the hot pools and sauna and watched a great new sealand movie also for free!
Surely the best campsite in the southern island (and we saw a lot!).
