Beautiful location nice and close to Christchurch airport. Perfect last spot to camp before flying out. There were very few people there which gave us plenty of space. Good facilities for kids too.

Beautiful place to stay. Lovely hosts, safe and fun for children, exceptionally clean facilities and lovely grassy private sites. It’s a pretty drive too and only 50 mins to Christchurch.

Stayed here for one night and were the only people on the site.
Beautiful and peaceful location set in a gorge just outside Oxford.
Clean facilities and warm showers (given one free token=5mins)
$42 a night but paid $40 as we didn't have change.

Absolute gem of a campground! So so peaceful and quiet. Even though it rained the whole night we were there we still found lots of places to explore with the kids. A must do!

Situated in a peaceful idyllic setting this was probably the best maintained and most beautifully presented camping ground I have ever stayed at . Friendly and helpful hosts who clearly treat the maintenance of this camping ground as a labour of love . And as an added bonus it has a pet friendly camping area !

We stayed here on our first night in NZ, and found it one of the most picturesque places we've stayed. Grounds are beautiful and the gorge is right next to you. Would definitely recommend!

Lovely well maintained grassy park, welcoming host, plenty of space for motorhome. Few other campers for our night there. Nice walks surrounding the park. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location. We were there in early April. Facilities quaint but very clean.

It was fine, quiet, with kitchen facility included. Shower included but only 4 minutes of hot water. An additional 4 minute token was a dollar or two. Caretakers were friendly enough. Sites were closely packed and I bet it could be noisy in the high season.

We stayed here a few weeks back and had a great time. On arrival, the new managers provided us with a shower token each and a very secluded pitch for our tent. Was nice that they identified that a young (ish) couple would prefer a little privacy away from the family vibe in the main site. All facilities were clean and well equipped. Get some sandfly stuff before you go though because it's a popular area for them. The area is beautiful and the hosts were most accommodating. We will be back again for sure. On a side note, we used this as a base to walk cave stream. Don't leave Canterbury until you've done it!

People living permanently in park in run down caravans. Not a very comfortable feeling for a tourist. Nice spot, friendly owners, but the people living there a bit off putting.
