Wonderful camp. So far, this is the best camp we had.
Great kitchen, near the bouncing pillow, so we can cook and watch our son at the same time.
Excellent shower facilities, and good separation between campers.

Clean and modern bathrooms, well equipped kitchen, convenient walking distance to groceries/restaurants and a longish walk to Caroline Bay. We stayed at a powered site for two nights. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Thanks Mark, we are pleased you enjoyed our facilities and location. The 20 minute walk to the beach is mainly a pleasant stroll through the park with a nice view of the beach and town from the Benvenue Cliffs.

The best Top 10 on my trip. Somehow this site was more cozier than others. Kitchens very clean and more spacious, and you could use all the pots and pans needed.

Thanks Pirita. We like being "cosier". That nicely sums up how we feel about what we do.

Another great Top 10 park. Located in suburban streets, walking distance to supermarkets and fast food. Very large powered sites had good separation from other motorhomes and campers. Clean and modern facilities with a large TV lounge, clean and large kitchen with a herb garden. Playground has a giant jumping pillow. Management are friendly and helpful, and do a great $2.50 coffee for club members.

The Timaru Top 10 is the best! All facilities are clean and warm, under-floor heating in the bathrooms with hair dryer, no timers for hot water showers (that are also free), plenty of utensils and crockery to use in the kitchen without fee, free DVDs and DVD player (both personal and one you can hook up to the TV in TV room) for borrow from reception, lovely 20-min walk to Caroline Bay (one of the top 10 beaches in NZ), and free 100mb of WiFi but also cheap paid wifi ($5 for 1gb). Also there's a Pak n Save a short 5-10 minute walk away as well as plenty of fast food options. Very friendly staff. Only con was muddy ground but that's what we get for camping in winter!

Really great location. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Quiet and peaceful night. Pristine bathrooms kept beautifully cosy and warm with a heater all through the night! Lovely hot showers too. Kitchen looked awesome but we didn't need to use it. Wish we had time to stay longer. Reception gave us great travelling advice which we took and it couldn't have given us a greater days sightseeing. Thank you. Highly recommend this place!

Would have been a 10 if they'd had a view but only freecamp sites seem to have amazing views in NZ.
This was the best Top 10 we stayed in during our 8 weeks in NZ: friendly staff, clean facilities, no timer/coins for shower, warm laundry possible instead of cold wash only, and good WiFi.

The hospitality of Timaru Top 10 Holiday Park is top class. When a cold winter storm striked across South Island and our motorhome heating system failed our host came to rescue with a portable heater. A very nice park full of facilities for children to play. Clean toilet and kitchen. Very close to Pak n Save and Caroline Bay.
