Welcome to the Pines Holiday Park, Hanmer Springs. We are under new management from 15 April 2019 and are a quiet family holiday park situated just 600 metres from the village centre & Thermal Reserve in Hanmer Springs.

We are under new management from 15 April 2019 check out our fabulous reviews since then!!

Spacious power and tent sites are surrounded by native gardens and are a great place to listen to the bellbirds and take in the spectacular views of the mountains.

We can help you book local activities and we have a mini golf course within the park, open from 1pm daily. Winter rates apply from June and an exceptional standard of cleanliness and hygiene is guaranteed. We are located adjacent to a large playground and directly opposite the Hanmer Springs Country Club.

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!

Paid over $100 for family of 3 children in campervan and not even hot water. $20 extra for children over 13years, for what? Pictures look like they have pool and playground but they don't.
They have check out time at 10.00 AM and could not check out one hour later because of tired children in the morning. All camping grounds I’ve been to are more friendly and better value than this.

Site is well manicured but there is no privacy between sites. Unpowered sites do not have water supply. Amenities are clean but inadequate number of showers and toilets for the size of the park, AND extra charge for showers on top of the expensive site fee. At night the lights switch off within minutes so be prepared to finish your short shower in the dark! Big signs are posted everywhere making it clear to campers what the site owner expects them to do, creating a rather unpleasant ambience. Yes there is a nice view to the mountains, but it is way overpriced for what the campsite offers, especially if you travel in a self contained motor home and don't need power.

We found this site to be the best around Hanmer Springs. We were lucky and got a powered site for two for $34 for the night on special. This park has the most incredible views of the snow covered peaks and the view alone is worth more. Amenities were pretty good but we have been amazed that a country that has more fresh water per person than any other country on the planet is so tight with their water. Showers and shower heads often leave a lot to be desired. The old fashoned shower rose and flickmaster style mixer tap is still the most simple, reliable and satisfying shower there is. This park employs the old plastic style shower head that does OK but could be better.

We paid 40 dollars per night. The communal kitchen has only two sinks, for us ok as we were off season, but in the high season....shower was ok for 50 cents. I will give it a 6 because because its to expensive for the service provided.

My husband booked us in, unfortunately we were made to feel unwelcome by fellow campers, I think due to over crowding as we had one of the last vacant spots because of long weekend. Made us rethink as we were advised we required extra payment when using showers. After a few moments it was decided we depart and find other accommodation. Not able to give true reflection on facilities as we did not stay, unfortunately refund isn't an option as there is large signature at reception with NO REFUNDS!

Lady-owner not friendly, rude like others say.
Shouting to us when asking why not discount on our kiwi-member card as if we asking for something strange.
Campground location is great but amenties to old, we had to share mens/womens showers as womens block was closed for winter.
This campground has great potential with the right management. The park is beautiful situated, close to the pools.

Quite expensive, but clean, well maintained. A bit money-hungry.

If i could put a 0 i would. the lady Dianne was extremely rude and unprofessional to this lady before us in the office, and then continued to be extremely rude to us. She very over reactive and has no reasoning with you and does not listen to any side of the story just her own. She screams and shouts and swears at customers which is highly unprofessional and RUDE. i do not recommend anyone to go stay there AT ALL. It was such a bad stay and very unhappy about it she even took 100 dollars out of my account for nothing! We didn't damage a thing so she had no right to take it out will be dealing police about this matter.
