We had a awesome stay on a powered site that was cheap with amazing facilities. The showers and toilets were cleaned dayley,I've never seen sinks so shiny!!
Cheap laundry $2 a wash with $1 for washing powder and $4 to dry.
Nice little playground for the kiddys and very close to town that's handy!
10/10!. Definitely will stay again and remember my togs for the thermal pool!

Definitely the worst top ten we’ve stayed in, but driving distance to downtown (or a very long walk) and the couple that runs it are super nice. Overpriced and don’t expect the best facilities but it wasn’t gross or anything, and works for location if needed.

Beautiful park. The kitchens are well stocked with equipment. We used theirs instead of the one in our camper! The toilets were clean and showers were heavenly! The sites are large and their is water and power on them, this seems to be uncommon in NZ. The thermo pool was small but nice. The staff were lovely and the wifi awesome. We paid $54 a night but it was well worth it!

Really helpful/friendly staff and very close to the town centre.

Quite lively when we were there, but still had plenty of showers and kitchen space.

Powered sites felt quite private, with hedges in between pitches.

while powered sites seem to be spacious and convenient, our non-powered site was the most narrow in our 2 weeks journey. Borders between sites were not clear at all, part of our site was occupied by boat. We checked in just at 8 pm so there was no one to solve this. Also, paid wifi for this price is misunderstanding. Next time I'd take powered site and check in early to have time to liaise with staff, there's plenty of things that went wrong

Sites quite cosy here but nice enough and good screening in between each site. This site is about a 15 min walk into Taupo. It’s also in the middle of a housing estate right next to a factory which can be noisy first thing in the morning. Showers good with plenty of hot water. Kitchen and BBQ facilities excellent. Probably wouldn’t return here but only because the location is not picturesque enough for us.

Pitches are a good size with thick hedges giving privacy between vans. Kitchen good. Tv room and games room. Tiny pool. Dormitory rooms near kitchen made it a lively site. Long walk to town.

We stayed here for two nights in a power site. A little pricier than some parks but well worth the cost of $24.00 per person. Each site is separated by hedges so that you can't see the neighbour beside you. Sites are roomy and each has a picnic table. The kitchen area is spotless with lots of grills to cook on and tables to sit at. Washrooms are very clean and a hair drier is provided. Showers are free and water pressure is good. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Wifi is $5.00 per 24 hours but is quick and easy to access. All in all a great place to stay in the very beautiful and interesting town of Taupo.

I was impressed at how clean the park and facilities were. Showers are big enough and have unlimited hot water.
As of October 2016, they are remodeling part of the toilet block. The section that is still open is plenty big to handle the capacity, but is shared for both men and women. I look forward to when the new part is open.
