Fantastic campground, heaps of space, beautifully manicured grounds with lush green grass, facilities very tidy with updated showers and toilets, a big games room with plenty for the family to do in the evenings.
Stayed 2 nights and we will definitely be back.

We love this place. Quiet, green, big trees, spotlessly clean and tidy. Darren and Rhonda are fabulous hosts.

Friendly hosts. Showers only $0.50, laundry $2. Walking distance to town, pubs, Four Square, Hammer Hardware, and cafes. For a fee, hosts will pick up/drop of for Te Araroa walkers.

Great big camp ground in walking distance of Methven Town. The facilities were a bit old but very clean and tidy, and there was heaps of cooking equipment in the kitchen which was helpful.

The camp ground was run down and one of the most expensive yet one of the poorest facilities we experienced during our 2 week south island tour. Would recommend others to stay elsewhere. Electronic systems are antiquated yet they as for your electrical wof! Location was quiet enough and good access to Mt Hutt and Methven stores.

This was a brilliant place, great value for all the facilities and the owners so friendly and helpful. Great hot showers, (50c for a plenty of time) sparkling clean, big kitchen with everything you need and a fun games room. Stayed early April and got there early so wasn’t too busy but they get busy in ski season I gather. Very near the town and a great base for walks up Haketere way. Oh, and a gorgeous Labrador puppy in the grounds plus two fluffy cats we spotted.
