We really loved this park, beautiful green grass & gravel pull ins. It’s right next to a peaceful public gardens, perfect for a stroll. They have private jacuzzi tubs you can rent for $10, perfect on a cold day. Facilities are clean big. Will stay again!

Extremely lovely staff and very helpful in terms of what to do in Oamaru. Slightly outdated but extremely tidy kitchens and bathrooms. Bit of wifi included. Nice flat sites of both gravel and grass. Short walk to town through to garden. Would stay again!

Arrived without reservation but no problem despite the Blues &Jazz festival that weekend. Nice stroll through the park into town late afternoon but walked back along the road after dark as the park was not lit. Used the showers. Only stayed one night.

My husband and I arrived at Oamaru Top 10 at dusk, about 8:30pm, which we thought was absolutely fine. there was no-one at the office but there was a note on the window which said "if you arrive late, just take a spot and pay in the morning". We didn't have a tent or campervan, we needed a room. There was a bell that my husband rung and a lady came up behind us and my husband said "sorry to bother you, but we are in need of a room for the night", he is always very polite. The lady was absolutely so rude and mannerless! She was mad that we arrived at that time, which we had never experienced before. We had arrived late at other places before and had never experienced such rudeness from anyone. There was a spa there which closed at 9pm but didn't even want to ask as she had alreay bit my husbands head off. If you want to run a business where you have to work with the public, being absolutely rude to guests is NOT a good if you want to make a living! She was obviously not a people person so I have no idea why she would want to run a camping ground. The room was ok, the amentities were good. Disappointed that she made us feel like we couldn't ask to use the spa though. I wouldn't recommend Oamaru Top 10 and won't ever be staying there again.

Top showers (best in 5 weeks around the country). As indicated there are extra toilets and showers near the reception. Kangoroo jumper and trampoline (they set it straight 😉). Facilities are great and very clean. Reception closed at 7pm but free spots were well indicated on a map. Few permanent recidents but not the messy ones. Next to the road and the railway, but it didn't bother us. Had a good sleep.
