Fantastic park, friendly and welcoming staff. Facilities are excellent and clean. Back right onto beautiful bush walking tracks. Close to town and a lovely stroll to the restaurants. You have to check out NO. 31 for dinner it’s food was perfection!
Highly recommended- cost $50 for 2 adults.

Very small pitches. Very popular with families with young children as has plenty of play equipment. Showers clean and free and shower blocks heated. However constantly disturbed by people walking straight through our pitch. Expensive for what you get. However close to village. Ideal if you have kids but not for us!

Loved the town & whole area but camp very expensive, the dearest of all been to. Was very wet; muddy on camp spots & roads in camp need more gravel. Facilities quite nice with showers included.

Disgusting! We’ve traveled around NZ for 3 weeks and this was the worst and most expensive site. Facilities were way to few for the numer of sites and everything was dirty all the time. Showers were unisex which isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Not sure how this site got to superior rating but it surely wasn’t for cleanliness.

Enjoyed our stay. Pricey, but it's to be expected. Some power boxes are very far from site, although they have extension cords available I believe. Awesome playground for kiddies. Multiple laundry rooms and bathrooms. The main bathrooms have heaters above the showers and toilets which was beautiful! Outdoor hot tubs are available to hire if the Hanmer Springs aren't your thing. Nice kitchen and dining area. Dump station area is big and out of the way. Would definately come back.

Mediocre campervan site, spaces were cheek to jowl with no privacy screens/hedges/trees between. Generally not as good quality as most Top 10s. Appeared a bit run down .

Sites were cramped and the power was located far away, requiring extra long lines, and going across neighboring site. Kitchen small, and laundry small, not great

Stayed here over the holiday break. Great family campground with loads of different accomodation types including various sizes of powered sites. Although quite pricey it is a good place to stay and enjoy the Hanmer experience.

Good location for the Springs etc but the site is a little run down when compared to other Top 10 and the price. All the usual stuff for a Top 10, coins for the laundry and cost for the extra WiFi but if you can get through the money stuff it’s a good location and easy access.

Priced on par with other sites we stayed at. Not many toilets and showers for the amount of sites and are a little dated, however more importantly they are clean. Great location, short walk to restaurants, bars and hot pools. Free 250MB WiFi per day. Like most places sand flies can be an issue, got bitten once but no issue after applying bug spray.

Excellent family friendly campsite. We stayed there on two separate occasions in one holiday. Not the cheapest but good facilities and good entertainment for the kids.

We started our trip from Christchurch and drove up North in a self contained camper van. During our road trip from Christchurch, this is the second Top 10 holiday park that we stayed. Two adults and two kids at a powered site, it costed us only $52 with our Top 10 membership discount. Staff was very friendly. The facility is nice and clean, shower is great, nice and big playgrounds. Location is the best, walking distance to pool, restaurants and shops. We stayed for two nights and wish we could stay longer. Loving that place. definitely will come back when we visit again.

A lot of people whine about nothing. Go find a motel room for the price. Ok that's of my chest. Loved this place. We walked up to town and had dinner-beautiful. The park was in the middle of revamping the bathrooms but that's a bonus for the future.
