Some nice sites alongside the river running through. Facilities basic. Heated pools a lot of fun with the kids. No wifi. Cabins appear to be used by seasonal workers from many Islands which added to the holiday feel to be honest!

Kids enjoyed the pools and playground, and our dogs loved the bush walks and stream running through the campground. Showers weren’t great, considering they cost extra. Staff were really friendly.

Nice friendly new owners as of dec 20.
Bit expensive $20 p/p p/n unpowered camp site, plus an extra $2 for a 6 minute hot shower, and had to vacate by 10 am like a motel, price includes access to pools tho, nice and clean, lots of bush walks around and quiet surroundings.

Beautiful spot, camping has a river going through. Very nice hot pools but I wouldn't stay there more than one night, facilities very dated, they charge you for showers no Internet, no dump station, so basically you are paying $24 dollars per person just for power. Lovely lady at the reception.

Stayed for three nights, friendly welcoming staff, very clean, the children enjoyed the pools, playing in the river and playground. Highly recommend for families as there was a safe feeling and lots of happy children running around enjoying their time.

We ended up spending two nights here due to problems with out campervan. Enjoyed our stay very much. Had a site next to the river. Showers are good, cost $2 for 8 minutes. We didn't use the pool and hot tubs, but they looked very nice.

This is the most beautiful site we’ve had on our month long holiday through the North Island, with the bush outlook and crystal clear stream, great for a cool dip! The pools where great for our little boy who dislikes cold water. However, a lot of the facilities and pools are still dated, but adequate and clean. We were certainly glad we stopped here though and would come back!

Disappointed with the pools not hot. WiFi terrible. Pricy for what you get. More than the normal add on costs.
Pools quite a distance from the camp ground so would get quite cold.

Tranquil bush setting by bubbling brook. Private hot pool not be missed
When we got a wheel bogged in a soft spot in the dark, Management came to the rescue without hesitation.
