This park has everything every other park does- except everything is better than any park we have visited.
Location: we walked to to town one day, biked the other. Location, location, location!
Campsite: you pick your own site. Need I say more?
Kitchen-eating facilities: amazing kitchen and utensils. But when you sit down to the table to eat on the deck overlooking the river, and you’re having a conversation with a person comfortable on one of the couches or sofa, you realize not many parks offer this setting!
Showers / Bathrooms: clean and plenty! Never have to wait.
Swimming hole- with a red one to swing and jump from, rocks to dive from, and great sandy bottom for getting out. Awesome!
Bikes: free use of bikes and helmets; at least 12 bikes to choose from. Just grab n go.
Trails: not good on the kiwi names, but a trail that is part of the park takes you on a 20 minute journey thru great NZ old growth vegetation and trees!
Owner: Robin will keep you both informed and entertained. We visited the museum, six mile hike and a great pizza. And he has plenty of stories!
Overall: We showed up and booked one night. We left 3 daze later!

One of the best. Clean, nice staff, hot showers, well stocked kitchens. We loved the open eating / hanging out area by the river. Surprisingly hardly any sand flies. Good location on the river, just a few minutes to town. Had a great 8 night stay.

$35 for two of us and a camper van. Showers are $2 but worth it for free WiFi all over the camp and really nice clean facilities/hot shower. Camp itself is near the water and a really nice place to stay!

Really wonderful people who work in the office offered me many, many off the beaten path suggestions for the remainder of my trip. They were awesome. The property itself and all the facilities were very well taken care of.

This is a great site adjacent to the river complete with a large outdoor seating area and natural plunge pool. We nearly went to another site but glad we didn’t as the hosts here were super friendly and the amenities although a bit out dated were both serviceable and clean. A reasonable price of $36 provided a powered pitch and the showers were hot although they were on a meter of $2. Overall a good site.
