    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.

    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.

    Good place to stay and relax.

    New shower and toilet block. All clean. Hot showers. Music is playing. Kitchen with enough sinks and cooking places. Nice BBQ area outside. Friendly and helpful staff. We didn't use the thermal bath. We stayed 2 nights with our motorhome.

    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.

    Could have been a 10 but when we stayed they were renovating the bathrooms...

    building took priority over campers. Very hard to get past the scaffolding to use the bathrooms. Nice camp site and bonus cheap entry to the hot pools which were fantastic on a cold wet night.
