This place is fantastic, we were only going to stay one night but then did two. The pool was great, nice and warm, and the swim up bar was good fun. Facilities new and clean, good hot showers. Kitchen good for washing up, but you’ll need your own utensils

This is, as the name suggests, more of a resort than a camp ground. Superb for families. Bikes, jumping pillows, playground and heated pools complete with swim up bar. Top dollar but loved it

A little more expensive but worth it for the amenities on offer. Stayed at Dino Valley which is further away but cheaper. Toilets and showers were hardly 2 mins away. The pool less than 5!

There is nothing to fault with this park- a hidden gem that makes you feel like you’re in a tropical resort. Complete with large heated thermal pools, a swim up bar and movies in the pool, this park is a credit to the managers. Exceptional staff and facilities

Just perfect!
We were so tired after 6 days on the road and this place has everything: BBQ, hot pool (with bar), hot showers, nice camping area, nice personal, cleaning cheap and includes soup.
Only the bar on the pool closes really early like 8pm

Thankyou for your lovely review. We hope to see you again soon. Our bar/cafe does close earlier during the winter, it is subject to patronage use.

Most expensive site we have ever paid for in NZ (more expensive than one in walking distance of Queenstown CBD) which is quite unbelievable because it was definitely NOT worth it. Not in walking distance to anywhere or anything. Majority of the park was closed for site grass maintenance. After paying our $$$ and signing weird digital T&C document, drove first to the dump site. Road was blocked off. Drove back to Reception “oh it’s closed as part of our site works” I was told. “Should have disclosed this before taking our $$$” I replied “as we need to use it/was one of the reasons we are paying to stay here”. Had to walk our tank way down a road and through worksite to empty it. NOT COOL when you were just charged over $90 for one night. Our site was not quite level but spacious. Wanted a swim and drink at the swim-up bar in the much advertised heat pool. Entered pool gate at 7pm only to see girl locking bar up for the night. Website and sign on gate all say bar open until 8pm, but no. More people joined us in the pool over the hour all commenting re why is bar closed early? Pool not hot enough, needs at least 2 degrees more to be confortable, freezing when we got out. Back wall of shower cubicle was shuddering / vibrating like a generator or similar on the other side - really, really loud. No relaxing here! Kitchen and laundry facilities also insufficient. Over-rated park, would not go back.

Stayed here with family. Great facilities and a huge park. The pool had way too much chlorine but I guess they have to..? Such a big park facilities can be far apart. Expensive but nice for a treat. Lots to do for kids.

Einer der besten, aber auch der teuersten Plätze während unserer Neuseelandreise. Haben uns hier eingebucht nachdem wir den Tongariro Crossing gemacht haben. Genau das richtige für die geschundenen Beine... einfach am Pool liegen und entspannen. Tolle Poollandschaft, tolle Bar, schöne Musik dort im Hintergrund.
Küche, Bad und Dusche top. Einziges Problem Platz ist riesig!! Längere Laufstrecke, wollten unpowered haben und haben fast am Ende des Platzes was bekommen obwohl noch vieles frei war... seltsam!
