Stayed for two nights on a campervan view site. This park is really a cut above the average expectations for such facilities. It's location in the lovely town of Russell, it's views, services and amenities are all par excellence. Highly recommended and we will be going back there soon.

We have stayed at Top Ten in Russell a number of times over the years. It's a great location just a few minutes walk from the waterfront at Russell and all the restaurants and water tours etc. The park is very clean and well run and the staff very friendly. A great place to stay with visitors from all over...

We stayed at one of the Top 10's our 2nd night and have managed to find one every night since. They are clean and provide hot showers, friendly staff, and lovely parks. Russell was my favorite little down so far and we could walk from the campsite to town and to nearby trails.

From the time we drove in to the Holiday Park in our Hired Britz Camper-van we felt like family friends returning home. Booking was a breeze, even to the point where we were offered points of interest that would interesting to us; being dining, cruises, self guided walks. Accommodation; we were guided to a high spot on the top area...

Thanks for the AMAZING review Bruce! Great tip on the bath mats, we do have some that we used to put in the shower cubicles before we upgraded to the new non-slip flooring. I will look at cutting some down for people who would like to use them in the showers. Enjoy the rest of your trip :)

Beautiful location, Russell was quiet on our visit which suited us, spotlessly clean site, extremely helpful staff. Went on a boat trip of the islands, did the one without food included which worked for us. The whole place was chilled out and the local people charming and helpful. Stayed an extra night just to the whole place in.

The staff were friendly and helpful, offering to assist with activity bookings and providing guidance on the facilities on site. We booked a cabin that slept five, which did not have a kitchen or bathroom. This was perfectly fine, as we were right next to the bathrooms and kitchen facilities, which were plentiful and allowed us to speak to other...

We could choose between a normal ($45) and a sea view ($50) spot. The 5 dollar more also gives you and a water fill spot and closer by facilities. Camping facilities are very clean and good. Walking distance from the town.

We just stayed overnight this weekend, and found our 1 BRM Bay Villa very comfortable and clean. Really well equipped kitchen, and other extras like heating, electric blankets on the bed etc. Beautiful views.
