Great shower pressure. Free showers, but very small cubicles unless you use the shower/ toilet unisex combo.
Best dump station for hygiene so far with soap and handbasin provided.
The actual dump also had its own flush and a lid.
Kitchen had detergent provided too.
Would happily return here.
$40 for 2 people unpowered.

We stayed 5 nights and had a not so pleasant experience. The owner tried to give us some moral lessons twice instead of first asking herself what situation we were in. Her approach was quite aggressive and judgmental - inappropriate and insensitive to the given circumstances. She must have had bad experiences in the past and therefore takes things personally. That's a shame for the business. However, she can be friendly and helpful if you butter her up. The rest of the staff was nice. Facilities clean. Showers on one end, hot water did not work. Other end worked fine. No kitchen utilities provided - only for rent, which we found disappointing for a TOP 10 Holiday Park.

We had a wonderful 1 night stay at our first Top 10 park. Yes it was $48 for 2 on a powered site but it was right by the beach, had a large and very well equipped kitchen, lovely big and sparkling clean ensuite bathrooms, large laundry facility costing $4 for a wash and the staff are lovely and helpful. It also had a dump station and water so for all those reasons it was perfect for us and worth every cent. Thanks guys! Newbie UK Jucy campers :)

Top 10 parks are not the cheapest, but the standards are high and this one is no exception. The park is a large open area with a sealed parking area for powered motorhome sites - which we appreciated granted the rain. This layout does mean there's no privacy between but there was plenty of room. Facilities are clean and modern. There were two sets of toilets, one being family bathrooms with toilet/shower which was a nice touch. Walking distance to the beach and a cafe up the road that had a brilliant breakfast, and has a Top 10 discount also. Management were friendly and helpful, suggesting best time to see the seals the following morning (dodging the worst of the weather, and she was right!). It's a drive to the seals or Westport from here. A flushing stainless steel dump station was the final surprise as we departed.

Internet slow in patches but reasonable compared with what we've experienced at other NZ parks (100mb free, paid for more). Right across from beach. Out of the Westport township.

We went to reception to ask for explanation and to discuss the price given that we were not using the amenities they were supposedly providing, but they shout at us and laugh at our face as if we were shit Awful people and expensive place for no returns.

We stayed here at a powered site in July. There were only three other people here, so extremely quiet. The park is very clean and tidy. The owners are uber friendly. The facilities are very homely. They are not modern, but that helped create the open and warm atmosphere. The beach is across the road - so views and great walks to be had. There's a playground down the road and a great bakery/cafe too. I don't often recommend parks, but this was really nice.

Facilities are very nice and the location next to the beach is charming. That said we were 3 in a self contained van and had to pay more than $70 which is crazy expensive. Never had to pay that much for a camping ground. Disappointing especially when we have been told the price would be around $30 when we arrived late in the evening.
