We stayed in our camper van for 5 nights and didn't really want to leave. The site is in an excellent location and we paid a small amount extra for a site with a view which was well worth it however the grassy camping area on the lower level looked nice also. The town is in easy walking distance. The...

Ideal location if you are touring and want to stop off in scenic Russell. The park is a short walk from the centre of the village but in a very quiet location. We stayed for three nights in a cabin right at the top of the park and the views from our verandah were stunning. The accommodation was clean, well...

I can't think of a single negative point about this place. Our stay was unfortunately altered somewhat as our arrival was delayed by cruising across from Aus on a storm front which delayed our arrival 10 hrs and meant that we missed our first night booked as we couldn't pick up our camper. We were thrilled to change our booking...

A bit on the pricey side but we had a beautiful view of the water from our powered site. Facilities are very clean and well managed. Close walk to town. Russell is a very pretty town with many things to see and do. A great place to stay.

As they say, "location, location, location". This has to be the best campsite to stay at if you don't want more than a 5-10 min walk to all the "action" in Russell. The fact that it also an extremely well kept campsite is a welcome bonus. The only facilities we used were the toilets and showers and both of these...

This is a typical campsite with quite small spots for your camper. The spots are not separated by bushes or anything so that you do not have any privacy. The facilities are very good and clean. Especially the BBQ is a little bit elevated and provides a pretty awesome view on Waikere Inlet. The showers provide hot water for 6...

Thanks for the review. Our deluxe camper sites are pretty standard in size (but make up for the lack of size with the view), but if you want a larger site we also offer our field sites. Enjoy your travels :)

This was our final stop on our month long campervan trip through both the South and North Islands. The location is incredible and the way the park is maintained is second to none. We look forward to returning to this holiday park again so we can spend more than two nights.

What a beautiful campsite we had booked a deluxe pitch as staying 3 nights and it was fabulous. Great views to the bay from our pitch. The facilities are excellent and all well maintained and clean. Great play area for children too. Walking distance to the beach and town.

We only had time for a single night at Russell in our camper, as our New Zealand journeying was almost over, however, we want to get to NZ again, and a stay at Russell will be part of it.It is a beautiful area to explore, and the top 10 site is well placed for booking trips and excursions.
