Nice place, but at $58 for two adults they should offer more inclusions. To have the advertised experience you have to pay additional ($11 per head) if you want to use the thermal pools. There's not even a swimming pool available unless you splash out for the 'discounted' water park and spa.
Also overheard a staff member mocking a potential guest who requested a better deal for their stay while I was booking... unprofessional at best.
Facilities were great with heated bathrooms, but again there should not be timers on the showers (limits you to 6 minutes) at that price point. Camp sites are also quite close to the road to Nelson, so there's some traffic noise.
Would recommend finding somewhere better priced and using the beautiful natural spring at the Thermal Park which is free!
Could be a great experience if they sorted out the exorbitant cost... won't be back until they do.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom flat, lots of space, tiny kitchen, pools not included in your booking price so a bit expensive for what you get. Free wifi, hot showers but not well set out with the whole bathroom wet once your finished. Good location 3 min drive from town up a steep hill.

Crooks. Not only it is highly expensive, but you have to pay in addition for the swimming pool (I don’t mean the spa). The woman at the pool was unfriendly and inflexible. Spoiled by tourists, find better places which deserve your money.

We got the last cabin (school holidays) and we were most disappointed at what we got for the price. Paid $97, we got 1/2 a 2 bed-room cabin. Basically they locked the door between the rooms and passed it off as a separate cabin. Our neighbours got a double bed, microwave and fridge, we got a bunk and a single bed, table and a tiny TV. No sink, no fridge, no cooking facilities or microwave, just barely room enough to swing a cat. Mattresses were foam and very uncomfortable. Just to put it into perspective, the night before at Rotorua we paid the same price for a 2 bedroom cabin, toilet and shower, electric cook-top, fridge, microwave, double bed and bunks. The rest of the facility was first class, cleanest toilets and kitchen I saw in 3 weeks in NZ, you also get $11 off per person nearby at the hot pools.

9 because of the price because it's Taupo?!?! The camp ground is nice and a mix out of camper, tents and cabins. The pitches are different sizes and all separated by hedges. The unisex bathroom (toilet/shower) is clean but very crowded. Kitchen is good equipped but we didn't use it. The staff is very professional and friendly. The camp ground is next to a water park with thermal water. You will get discount as a camper. It was nice but crowded also.

It's a good place in Taupo for backpackers if you stay longer than 3 days at the camping ground. The kitchen facilities are good and you can take stuff from the reception. The toilets are clean in comparison to other places.

It was the most expensive campground we stayed at ($80) for 2adults/2 kids). It was very loud from the road, the sides where small and worst of all due to upgrading of the toilets there was just on facility for male and female together with 3 toilets and 3 showers for a large campground and they have been not very clean and the toilet seat was loose. The only good thing was the pool discount. The kids loved it.
