The lady who greeted me couldn't have been friendlier. Easy access flat with lots of room and a great bathroom. Super clean and well appointed. Even the towels were folded like little dogs...and extra special touch. Great for families as the folks could sit in the unit or on the lovely verandah and watch their kiddies play safely on the...

My wife and I stayed in this park for a night. It was the cleanest and most well kept park we stayed in during our tour of the north and south islands. The facilities were first class, the hosts friendly and could not do enough. The price for our powered camper van site $40 which is average. This site is...

We payed for one night, and after checking out the fascilities we instantly decided to stay another night. It is reasonably close to central Taupo and the fascilities were in excellent condition (clean toilets/showers, well ecquipped kitchen). We were out of season, so we had the kitchen to ourselves most of the time and therefore used the living area to...

Back again with the Wildfish Rugby team, competing in the NZ schoolboys rugby tournament in Taupo. Great accomodation for our large group. We stayed in a cabin which was so clean. Warm and quiet, really well equipped and such friendly staff. A real warm welcome. Hope to be back next year if not before.

We stayed in a deluxe cabin for one night with the children. The room was biasic, but clean and warm with a playground in easy view. Good value accommodation. Staff were friendly and helpful. Suited our needs as there wasn't a kitchen or bathroom in the unit but we just stayed for one night.

The unit we stayed in was a good size, clean, comfortable and warm. We had one issue that was of no fault of the camp management and they dealt with it quickly and efficiently. Thank you William for getting out of bed to help. Mustn't forget to mention that the beds were very comfortable. Definitely will stay again.
