$40 for 2 adults on a non-powered site. 3 year old went free.
Really friendly guy at reception .
The sites are a decent enough size on grass and with vegitation and trees inbetween to give some screening.
The facalities are old but kept clean.
The showers were $0.50 but we never needed them as we went to the hotsprings in the late afternoon (within easy walking distance)
Really nice childrens playground next door and a outdoor fitness circuit as well.

Stayed here on a powered site for one night after abandoning our plans to freecamp in Christchurch. Called up to check it would be okay, gentleman on the phone was friendly and told us how long it would take us to get there. Check in on arrival was quick, we were one of four or five campervans for the night so they gave us a nice spot away from the others but close to the facilities. Grounds were very clean, power box could use a bit of care as there were lots of bugs and spiderwebs but that's just being nitpicky. Showers were good for 50c, laundry facilities were good, only strange part was there appeared to be two ladies camped out in the kitchen the whole time we were there washing themselves in the kitchen sink. Got a late night visit from someone's dog, was concerned at first but he was lovely and friendly and a nice surprise to end our night. The only reason I voted 9* was due to the huge amount of bugs that came into the camper which we think were sandflies. Other than that it was a lovely stay.

Don't expect this site to honour your Kiwi Holiday Parks discount card. I was told they have left the organisation and no longer accept it. Although they are in the 2019 Brochure which offers the discount.

Lovely hosts though, new owners who are trying to improve the reputation of the site. It certainly is a nice place to stay. Great location, well laid out, clean and well tended. $30 p.n for one with power.

Why would you? Perfect for visiting Hanmer Springs; great hosts, clean, tidy and well serviced.

Why wouldn't you? You're giving Hanmer Springs a miss; you're expecting a 15% discount with your Kiwi HP card.

Mark-downs? Bit of a cheek to use the brochure to make an offer but then withdraw it when people arrive. They should in all decency have waited out the current brochure.

Return? Yes I would return.

Lovely location, average camping area, the kitchen was ok but old. Very rude lady that owns the campground. We were drying the last of the dishes before leaving at about 10.05am and she barged us out the kitchen with the hoover, was passive aggressive and wouldn't give refunds for the following night we had already paid for. will not be staying again!!!

A lovely little campsite, nice grounds, clean and tidy amenities. Nice and quiet with access to a sports field and walking distance to town. 50cents for showers but a very good shower. Interesting Jackson Pollock flooring, but I guess it’s a non slip surface.

Lovely campsite. Spacious sites. Very friendly at check in. Have to pay for showers but only 50 cents for 7 minutes, turned off shower well before that. Very clean. Great for walking to village. Only stayed one night as had previously checked in at the top 10. Wished I found this little gem first!
