Camped for 3 nights in tent. Didn't do my research well but these details weren't on the site as information before booking. The suburb or place the camp part is in is called "Hilltop" so it's terribly windy and not good of you're in a tent. The camping ground is right in the flight path of the airport, and the ground to pitch tents in the powered area is hard. Toilets and showers are unisex but good.

Stayed 2 nights in DeBretts camping park and had a powered site for our camper van. The park was pretty much empty so we could choose a spot and the sites were well separated by well cared for hedges and trees.
The park is at the pricier end of the range, but you get discounts to the wonderful hot pools and de bretts baths just a short walk away.
The camp ground is extremely well maintained, the staff very polite and helpful and the location great with views of the lake and mountains.
The top marks from us go to the showers and kitchen areas. Immaculately maintained, everything is new and works well and all in excellent and very hygienic condition.
We were very glad we stayed here.

Tidy nice grounds. Clean and tidy bathrooms, toilets, kitchen and dining area. Also a sheltered outdoor BBQ and dining area. Showers are timed for six minutes but are free. Laundry facilities are good ($4 per load to wash, and increments of $1 for drying depending on how long you want to dry). The hot pool resort on site is nice - you still have to pay entry but it's $11 per adult instead of $22, and you can use the private hot pools. The walk downhill and into town along Taupo lake is nice and takes about half an hour (we Ubered back up). The only downside is the cost - we paid $52 for two people for a powered site, however we felt it was worth it for a good rest and recharge/shower/do laundry stop

Great showers and clean kitchen. Fast wifi. Ither than that, not that beautiful camp ground, a road close by and pretty expensive. The water slides cost extra to the extra entry of the hot spring and the kids need to be 8 and older.

Very pricey, especially considering that you have to pay extra for using the hot pools.
A bit on the noisy side near the road.
Booked a camp site and when we arrived there was a bunch of cut grass bags on the site. Also broken beer bottle pieces all over the site. Had to first pick all those up before pitching our tent. The ground is really hard and stoney. Not so nice for tenting.
Facilities are first class. Beautiful unisex bathrooms. Showers 6 minutes with a button on the outside of the shower.
Hot pools were very nice. One has to unfortunately pay extra again to use the slides. Children's area was unfortunately not in working order. Apparently there was something wrong with the pipes. Would have been nice to get a discount for the kids because they could not use the area.

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.
