Too much money for a normal campsite. Facilities are normal and this spot is close to supermarket and other places at Nelson.

If you are after a city stay this one is great. Quiet considering city location- 2km to city heart where lovely restaurants/bars are. $10 in cab. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Clean and lovely amenities even had decent hairdryer.

We are staying in a tent and we were disappointed with the site.
There is one small section for all the people staying in tents, the ground there is not even at all. We paid $44
and it was not worth it.
Kitchen is small for the amount of people they cram in the park.

Nice, clean and convenient. Close to Nelson town. It's a smallish camp with good bathrooms and kitchen equipment.

10/11Oct18. $87.21. A friendly welcome on a rainy night. A compact site, quite popular as only 2 pitches available. We didn’t book so were lucky to get one. Probably the best toilet and shower blocks we have seen so far in 5 weeks in NZ. Laundry $4 each washer and dryer. Auto detergent. New machines.
No great views but then we are in Nelson City.
A short walk to the centre.

I don’t know what is wrong with this campsite but I’ve been traveling in New Zealand for 2 month and this never happened to me!
We stayed here for 2 nights in the first night someone stole my very expensive powerbank with adapter and cable aswell the powerbank of another guy and the food in the fridge of another guy aswell. When I left another powerbank in the ladies bathroom for no longer than 2 hours the same happened again. This is RIDICULOUS! I don’t know if this is about the staff or anything else but I can’t believe it .

I liked this park. It is small but quant. We were parked in the back by the trees and creek and it was nice. If you want to see Nelson, this works. Downtown is walkable - about 25 minutes. The staff was friendly and the facilities were clean.

Good city campsite. Not completely central - half hour walk to town amenities, but fine as a base or one night stay. Good bathrooms, with great showers. Good wifi and not too close to other campers. The dump station is in a bit of an odd place, which means you potentially block others while you dump.

Very friendly and helpful staff, facilities are very clean, must have been upgraded recently (see older comments), lots are nicely divided and provide enough space (we traveled by camper van). Four washers and dryers with detergent already included. The centre of town is 2 km walk away, with some nice pubs and breweries. With $45 for a powered site per night this is clearly on the more expensive side, but you get good facilities for it. Wouldn't necessarily recommend this for tents, that area was pretty small.

A small site about 30 minutes walk from the centre of Nelson. The motorhome pitches are on the small side and can be difficult to manoeuvre in/out of, especially if vehicles are parked opposite outside the motel rooms. OK from a 1 or 2 night stay, but probably not for longer. Presence of a family/couple bathroom was a good innovation.

Convenient small site for a pit stop in Nelson. Pitches smallish for a large camper van but attractively separated. Didn't see any trouble over the dump site access, but it is poorly placed, so the potential's there. But you can carry your black water cassette to the dump rather than pull up on the bridge. The walk to town is 2km and takes about 30 minutes. There is a daytime only hail and ride bus which passes the gate. Adult fare $2.50 into town. A taxi back in the evening costs around $10.
