Everything was so clean, staff were friendly and welcoming. Nice restaurant next door, general store and bar close by also close to the caves
Would highly recommend a stay here.

Located very close to caves. Nice, clean site and facilities. Young lady on reception was really helpful with everything including booking cave tour. The sites were quite close together and we actually had to ask to move to another site as we couldn’t fit in the original site and reach the power. Also the second site wasn’t completely flat which was weird because all the sites have been completely landscaped and gravelled. Still, would recommend.

Super helpful staff, helped book cave tour and set everything up. Clean, and ideally located for morning cave tour.

Got a great unpowered spot! Wonderful location and great facilities. The pool and hot tub was a bonus. Great location in Waitomo and great bathrooms.

If you like being in the middle of a playground and noise with pitches within 2 meters of each other very close, this is ideal. If you want privacy and quiet evening then I would not recommend it and expensive. The dump station area was in an terrible state too.

Convenient location for glow worm caves. Clean and modern facilities. However our motor home site was not level and was very small. Also a bit of noise from cafe/ restaurant behind park.

WOW! so peaceful and beautiful

The best holiday park we stayed in. The amenities are so clean they shine, the staff are super friendly, but the best part is the beautiful quiet country location. A smallish park by comparison but that only adds to the charm. rolling hills surround the park and there are beautiful picnic tables to sit, eat and drink under a big beautiful tree.

Perfectly located within a super easy 500m walk to the caves.

Wish we were staying here for a week!

Very peaceful campsite, and easy to find. Top quality toilets and showers, and free wifi, which is what you expect for the price. Right in Waitomo village, so great for cave tours, and not too busy in October. Hot pool which is also nice for a dip. There's also a great restaurant next beer that does local craft beer, which is highly recommend.

Nice little park in a great location, within 5 minutes walk to the gloworm caves and the river walks
we found the park clean and well cared for, the amenities were modern and clean, there is a lovely pool area which looks ideal for kids,
it was one of the nicer parks we stayed on whilst on our travels.

Good clean facilities including hot showers. Family orientated place with the swimming pool in the middle. Sites were nicely spaced out with room each side. Could do with a few more washing machines as there was a long wait to be able to put a load on.

Hi Liz,
Thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback; we really appreciate it. It's great to hear what we're doing well, and also what could be improved. It's a bit tight in the laundry at the moment, but we'll look into how we might be able to make it work better for our guests.
Hope you've had a great trip home or to your next destination.

We stayed there for one night with our tent to go for a trip through Waitomo caves the next day. Although we reserved almost half a year before we were forced to find a place ourselves on the regular tent site as ours on a terrace at the side of the road was blocked by a car. The tent site is quite hilly and therefore this was not an easy task. Furthermore the complete park was quite full and there is just one washroom building which is only cleaned once a day - some of the few toilets were really disgusting. The place obviosly lives from the cave tourists, so our impression was that the owner didn´t see the necessity of preparing a site that hits the needs of campers, i.e. at least half-decent flat ground and hygienic standards.
The staff was friendly, the surroundings quite nice (lots of king fishers and tuis around the place).

Hi Susi,
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review, and I'm really sorry to hear that your stay with us wasn't up to standard. After some feedback on our busiest nights (including yours), we have made some changes to our washroom cleaning schedule to help ensure that they remain clean and tidy. I know it's too late for you, but I want to assure you that we do hear your needs and suggestions. I'm also sorry that your campsite was blocked; it's usually a matter of first in, first served, and a booking in advance will get you one of the flatter and closer sites, but of course we can't control all the variables.
I hope you've had a safe and happy onward journey, and that your time in Waitomo wasn't too spoiled by some unfortunate issues with your stay here.
Kind regards,
