Very good size pitches. Excellent for Tongariro crossing ( shuttle is $50 pp)
Facilities are quite old fashioned, in need of modernisation but clean. Didn’t use WiFi but Vodaphone coverage is good. Was not busy when we were there.

Great place to stay for the Tongariro crossing! Pick up can be arranged from the site at 6:40. Quiet, small campsite, superclean toilets and showers, even a (good working) hairdryer in the showers. Great kitchen with BBQ and clean & ironed teaclothes. Very nice relaxing music in the toilet& shower place. Very friendly host! We advise everyone to go there!

This was the only campsite in NZ that I would give negative feedback about (of 6 we stayed in). In their description the "new" owners say they took over in 2016 but I find it hard to see what they have actually done in 3 years. The place still looks so run down and in need of TLC. The location has so much potential and the basic structures are there - but getting worse not better in shape. They say they are "low cost" but they are not NZ$45 for two people in a campervan on a powered site is not "low cost" compared to other campsites which offer so much more. I cannot recommend this site and would suggest people look elsewhere until dramatic changes are made.

Super charming place with nice clean toilets and showers. Kitchen was nice but not that well equipped. A bit pricy but after the river trail it had everything we needed for a days rest.

Owner was very helpful and very nice. Nice grounds. Very poor shower facility. No doors, only shower curtains, no bench, no place to put soap or shampoo, everything metal was rusted. No ventilation. Mirrors too foggy to use. No rubber mats. No outside lights. Really worn out. The price is high for what you get.

Basic serviced campground. Owners are super helpful. Camp is tired - but very functional in a great location. Lots of space for everyone, and plenty of (very basic) cabins available.

Good basic kitchen and shower facilities, though the showers are starting to show signs of age. Large sites with trees providing some additional privacy. Great overnight site before the Alpine Crossing.
