Information

This beautiful family holiday park is located right on the banks of the Whanganui River.

Whether you need a top quality motel, self-contained accommodation, a simple cabin or a spot to pitch your tent or caravan, we've got something affordable for everyone!

With units accommodating between 1 and 7 people and 2 accessible units for those using wheelchairs or with mobility difficulties, our range will pleasantly surprise you.

We offer complimentary WiFi to all our guests. Free parking next to your cabin or motel. Netflix in all our deluxe units and SKY TV in the communal lounge. Peace and tranquillity of a riverside location mixed with the fun and activities you would expect from a quality Top 10 Holiday Park.

Our friendly, family park boasts great facilities and activities including: an outdoor swimming pool (heated to 30 degrees from September-Easter), a games room, jumping pillow, bouncy castle, 2 adventure playgrounds, trampoline, petanque, aviary, hammocks, slack line, TV room with 50+ Sky TV channels, large communal kitchen, dining and BBQ areas. Additionally, we have a fantastic communal family bathroom and an accessible shower room making life so much easier for our guests with young children or mobility difficulties.

For a hire we have: a private spa pool, trikes to ride around the park, kayaks to take out onto the Whanganui River and mountain bikes to take around town or on the local mountain bike tracks. If you fancy a run around or game of ball there is a large open field next to the park.

We have a boat ramp where you can launch your own boat or jet-ski or take out one of our kayaks. Or we can take you 5 or 8kms up river and you can make your own leisurely way back to the park by kayak taking in some of the fabulous scenery you just don't get to see by car.

Most of our accommodation has outdoor decking and seating areas, some of them with great views of the river, others where you can relax watching your children playing on the playground. There's plenty of picnic areas around the park, some shady, some sunny - you choose. Relax on a bench or blanket by the river and watch the Waimarie Paddle Steamer go by - we are the only holiday park to get a regular 'toot-toot' from an original paddle steamer as it passes right by our grounds!

And then there is Whanganui itself - there is so much to do in town and the surrounding area, you will not want to leave!

Felt uncomfortable and cramped in on our 1st night because of the small cabin we stayed in and a mixed up with our booking? C27 needs upgrade it's too small & the beds are worn out.
But thank God we moved in to a bigger/better cabin for 2 nights. Our kids had fun swimming and games room. Great friendly staff.

One of the best caravan parks we had during our 6 weeks stay in NZ. Spacey sides, modern and clean bathrooms and toilets. Clean, nice kitchen. Large heated pool. Very friendly and helpful staff. We would stay there again. There is a lot to do and to see....

Hi Folks,

we stayed here in october 2015.
The campground is very spacious and the heated pool was just awesome with the slide. We had also the chance to rent the kidscar and the BBQ was just great.If I remember correctly this was with real fire. The facilities were good and clean. It was a very good experience, as expected by a Top Ten.

Cheers

A great place to stay with children or not. We came here after our children selected this spot using the Rankers app. Best decision we ever made in New Zealand. The owner was extremely outgoing and kind, not to mention helpful, we met this random stranger who sent us the right way for warm showers, she used kind phrasing. Even the cleaner was nice! (She looked like the winter had left her very unhappy) very clean, they even have a free to play Xbox. I really could not ask for anything more than this. Don't miss it.

Good location beside the river, though a fair way out of town. Van sites by the river rather cramped. Good facilities. But our visit was spoiled because they had a large youth group (rowers?), who monopolised the kitchens and the social areas

If you are only planning to stop for the night and have no kids I would skip this campsite since it is quite costly and crowded with playing childeren. Quite far from town center.
