Nice enough spot as a stopover for Tongariro Crossing. Free 1gb of internet but trying to connect was hit and miss. Showers, kitchen and lounge were all quite small and needed updating.

The spot for the camper van was nice but the amenities were definitely a little run down. The kitchen was small and only had two stools for seating. The hang out area was decent size but felt used. Showers were fine. You can't get wifi at the camper van site even though they say it is available.

For $40 a night for two, including wifi. Walk 10 metres if you can't get reception. Basic but good kitchen, comfortable lounge area, hot showers.
On a rainy night in Turangi we found this to be a perfect spot in our camper van. Not far from the shops and very central to town.

A powered site for 2 people costs $40. No soap in the toilets. Free wifi with very bad reception at the powered sites (clear focus on apartments). Everything old and dingy. Shower / WC with light timer: If you do not fast, dry in the dark ...

This park was clean and well maintained. It is co-located with a motel of the same name so there are other facilities on site which you can use.
Even though it was Labour Weekend, it was not crowded. I never had to wait to use the kitchen or showers. The showers do not have a built-in seat, so I just brought in a plastic chair to keep my dry clothes from getting wet.
There is easy access to the other side of SH1 through a pedestrian underpass so you can go get groceries, find a restaurant, or get information on activities.

Clean facilities, lovely hot shower (free) and free to use the jacuzzi (spa pool). Sauna is for rooms only (we had a powered campervan site for $18pp). Free 500mb wifi on arrival. Games room on site, and lovely restaurant/bar too! Great find, best place in town.
